Are You Susceptible to Plantar Fasciitis?

 

According to the Mayo Clinic, “Plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).

Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move more, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or after rising from sitting.”

The Mayo Clinic also cited that people between the ages of 40-60 are more likely to get plantar fasciitis.

Our MedMassagers were made specifically with foot issues in mind. We added an “arch bar” as seen in the photo to allow users to conveniently rub their arches and heels back and forth. This motion allows the fascia of the foot to stretch, reduces pain and decreases inflammation.
