Sock Selection for Plantar Fasciitis
There are various sock options on the market to help ease foot pain; however, choosing the best pair may be daunting. Here are a few pointers on how you can select suitable socks:
Compression Socks/Sleeves: Compression sleeves offer targeted compression and support to promote blood flow and speed up muscle recovery, as well as improve arch and heel alignment for more comfort and to reduce pain.
Comfort should always be the top priority when searching for compression sleeves, and most are made of soft yet breathable materials that allow airflow.
Shoes for Plantar Fasciitis:
When purchasing new shoes to treat plantar fasciitis, the ideal pair should feature shock-absorbing heels, cushioned soles, and good arch support. When making this important purchase decision, all these factors must be taken into consideration.
Therapy Wraps, Compression Socks or Heel Pads: An alternative way of treating plantar fasciitis symptoms without medication is wearing therapy wraps and compression socks all day long. These products should be worn along with shoes designed specifically to support feet and heels while preventing inflammation and decreasing pain.
At home, using a night splint may help ease foot pain by holding your foot at a 90-degree angle to the leg – helping keep your heel bone in place and alleviate plantar fascia stress.
