Why Rigid Orthotics are Good for Plantar Fasciitis

October 27, 2017

Approximately two million people are treated for plantar fasciitis every year. You have undoubtedly heard of plantar fasciitis, but you may not know the details of why and how it happens.

You have a ligament called the long plantar ligament that starts at your calcaneus (heel bone), spans the arch of your foot, and attaches at the base of your toes. Its job is to act as a shock absorber as your walk, jog, run, and jump your way through life. If that ligament gets inflamed, it causes pain in the ligament’s fascia – hence the name: plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis pain typically:

  • starts right in front of the heel bone;
  • feels worse when you start using your feet after being off them for a while (in the morning or after a long car ride); and
  • feels worse after periods of exercise.

Sometimes the cause of the inflammation is known (sudden bursts of hard activity, higher impact activities, poor arch support, heel spurs, weight gain, etc.). Other times your feet just start to hurt and no one ever knows the reason why.

 

The Real Question

Of course for those suffering from plantar fasciitis, the real question is, is there a solution? And the good news is, yes, there is.

At Z-CoiL, we’ve made it our business to understand foot pain and provide solutions. In fact, the whole reason we exist is because our owner developed plantar fasciitis and couldn’t find any shoes on the market that helped. When he figured out how to fix his own foot problems, he marketed his ideas and Z-CoiL was born.

 

The Two-Fold Solution

Plantar Fasciitis requires two things to be in place before it can heal. Those two things are:

  • support, and
  • cushioning

It seems deceptively simple, yet, looking at the diagram of the foot above we can see how it would require a great deal of science and knowledge to figure out how to care for something as complex as our feet.

 

What Does Science Say?

Scientific studies show that firm orthotics significantly reduce foot pain for sufferers of plantar fasciitis. Both men and women feel better when their inflamed feet are given reliable support. That’s why every pair of Z-CoiL shoes is built with that support built right in.

And as for the cushioning our feet need in order to not get inflamed in the first place, every pair of Z-CoiL shoes comes with our patented spring heels to reduce the impact on our heels.
