Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common foot problems affecting the population. It involves inflammation of the thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. It causes stabbing pain that occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you gradually move around and more and walk, the pain typically subsides into a dull throb. The stabbing pain typically can return after long periods of standing or after rising from sitting. You deserve to walk through the day without the dread of being in pain. Ergo-Goods is here to help.
Treatment Is Just A Phone Call Away!
Ergo-Goods is here to eliminate the pain and discomfort that you are feeling. Treating plantar fasciitis with icing and rest can sometimes be all you need. In more serious cases, arch supports and orthotics might be necessary. Orthotics will help distribute the pressure to your feet more evenly, which will help to decrease the pain and over time, correct the alignment in your feet.

Some Risk Factors of Developing Plantar Fasciitis
Age: Plantar fasciitis is most common between the ages of 40 and 60.
Certain types of exercise: Activities that place a lot of stress on your heel and attached tissue — such as long-distance running, ballistic jumping activities, and ballet dancing and aerobic dance— can contribute to an earlier onset of plantar fasciitis.
Foot mechanics: Being flat-footed, having a high arch or even having an abnormal pattern of walking can affect the way weight is distributed when you're standing and put added stress on the plantar fascia.
Obesity: Excess pounds put extra stress on your plantar fascia.
Occupations that keep you on your feet: Factory workers, teachers and others who spend most of their work hours walking or standing on hard surfaces can damage their plantar fascia.
