Plantar Fasciitis is irritation and swelling of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. When the fascia is inflamed, it can be painful and make walking difficult. The most common complaint is pain along the bottom of the arch and heel. Many time the pain starts in the heel and is confused with a heel spur. Sharp pain is usually worse in the morning and will often subside throughout the day. By the end of the day the pain may be replaced by a dull ache that improves with rest and treatment. Plantar Fasciitis is a repetitive stretching of the fascia from collapsing arches that are unsupported and leads to excessively shearing from no stability.
The ALINE Solution: ALINEs can resolve this issue by supporting the foot and creating a suspension system under your foot, the same way your car has a suspension system. This allows your foot to withstand impacts when walking, running, or participating in any other sport. Your forefoot will no longer slide and stretch the fascia bands under your foot. Even if you already have plantar fasciitis, we find that most people using ALINEs experience reduced pain in less than two weeks.
