Whether you have an acute foot injury or suffer from a chronic condition, foot pain is no joke. Especially when living with foot pain/plantar fasciitis you need to find ways to still do your daily activities and live as normally as possible.
Causes of Foot Pain
Some of the most frequent causes of foot pain are exactly what you'd think. Injury, overuse, and other conditions can cause inflammation surrounding the bones, tendons, and ligaments of the foot, resulting in pain.
In America, the part of the foot that tends to cause the most pain is the heel. This heel pain is often a result of standing for many hours, especially if that's what is required at your job, poor fitting shoes, or just sheer exertion on your feet. Because you have to use your feet either by standing or walking, it is often times very difficult to give an injury the proper time it needs to heal.
The most common cause of heel pain is plantar fasciitis. Every year in America, over 2 million people seek help for this ailment. The plantar fascia is a flat band of tissue, a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes and runs on the bottom of your foot. If you happen to strain this ligament, you'll feel a stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot.
What To Do Next?
Since you are suffering from foot pain, looking for a way to manage your symptoms and continue with daily life is your top priority. In order to still do what you want to do while living with plantar fasciitis, you need to find some type of relief. Medications can be prescribed in order to manage the pain, along with physical therapy and night splints. But if you're looking for an alternative to help provide support to your feet and help to ease the pain, then you should consider tape.
PFTape is a great way to help ease your foot pain, and more specifically your plantar fasciitis. By simply applying two different strips of tape on your foot, one along the bottom of your foot coming up over your heel and another going over your arch and around your foot, you'll be sure to find relief.
This tape helps to provide support to your foot, which in turn helps to take the strain off your plantar fascia ligament. Since the tape provides additional support, it will help you get back to your daily life as soon as possible.
Not only will the tape help to provide you with relief, but it is very simple to put on. This means no complicated braces and struggling to put on shoes overtop of them. Instead, you'll get support and relief for your pain with a seamless application. Taping has been proven to be an effective method to help treat your foot pain.
