How do Plantar Fasciitis socks and sleeves work?
To understand how Plantar Fasciitis socks and sleeves work, it’s important to know what Plantar Fasciitis is and what causes it.
Plantar Fasciitis is a common cause of foot and heel pain which can be brought on by activities such as running, consistent standing on your feet for long periods of time, or other repetitive motions that put pressure on the arch of your foot. Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis include pain in the heel or arch of the foot, swelling, increased pain after exercise and pain that is worse in the morning or when you stand after sitting for a long period of time. This pain can last for months if untreated and can cause overall discomfort and frustration in your day-to-day life. It’s important to note that while you can treat plantar fasciitis, there is a risk of getting it again if you don’t take preventative measures while doing any of these activities.
To treat plantar fasciitis, you can visit a physical therapist who will show you exercises to stretch your plantar fascia and achilles tendon. They may also teach you or recommend applying athletic tape to support the bottom of your feet.
Another option to treating your plantar fasciitis is to wear compression products made specifically for this condition. For example in the OS1st Plantar Fasciitis Recovery Kit, you get one pair of plantar fasciitis foot sleeves, one night time plantar fasciitis sleeve and two pairs of plantar fasciitis socks.
To effectively use the OS1st Plantar Fasciitis Recovery Kit, follow the three-step process below:
- Step One: Use the Plantar Fasciitis Foot Sleeves to get your pain and swelling under control during the day.
- Step Two: Continue your therapy overnight by using the Night time Plantar Fasciitis sleeve to prevent the first-step pain in the morning.
- Step Three: Once your symptoms have subsided, wear the Plantar Fasciitis socks to prevent another flair up.
