Products to Treat Plantars Fasciitis Arch Pain
The term arch pain (often referred to as Plantars Fasciitis) refers to an
inflammation and/or burning sensation at the arch of the foot. The
plantar fascia is a broad band of fibrous tissue located along the
bottom surface of the foot, that runs from the heel to the forefoot.
The planter fascia can become inflamed due to over-pronation (flat
feet) which causes the arch pain.

CAUSES OF ARCH PAIN
The major cause of arch pain is plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the
muscle that runs along the bottom of the foot). Plantar fasciitis is
caused by excessive stretching of the plantar fascia, usually due to
over-pronation (flat feet).The inflammation caused by the plantar
fascia being stretched away from the heel, often leads to pain in the
heel and arch areas.
TREATMENT OF ARCH PAIN
Avoid high-heeled shoes whenever possible. Purchase high quality
insoles or arch supports to take pressure and pain away from the arch. Additionally, you might want to try a Night Splint to apply a mild stretch to the muscle while you sleep.
