Plantar-Fasciitis-Remedy

When it comes to foot pain, is there a drug-free, non-invasive option for plantar fasciiti?

Plantar fasciitis is a mechanical or bio-mechanical issue — repetitive stress on the plantar fascia. That stress causes pain and swelling. Devices that support the arch or sit beneath the heel do little to limit the damaging stress during walking or running. Then before too long, the pain returns.

Sports tapes and strappings can provide short-duration support, but they quickly lose their effectiveness because materials breakdown and adhesives begin to slip. General purpose taping products, while they may be effective in supporting soft tissue, they offer no real therapeutic support of the plantar fascia.

In order for the fascia to recover, it must be effectively supported and protected, even for just a few steps.

The PFTape™ System from Mueller Sports Medicine was engineered as an easy-to-use system for providing targeted and durable support to the plantar fascia. It helps protect the plantar fascia for up to 24 hours per application. The PFTape System allows your plantar fascia to rest, while you remain active.

“My Plantar Fasciitis appears with no warning – In the past it has been visits to the Podiatrist, steroid shots, and wearing 2 pair of socks and sneakers to the office for a few months before the pain subsides. I heard about this product from a friend and decided to give it a try. In just 2 days my heel pain was greatly diminished and completely gone after approximately 1 week. The instructions were easy to follow and the straps were thin and flesh colored which worked great under stockings for work. Awesome design and worked fabulously. No More Foot Pain!”
