The Mueller Plantar Fasciitis Arch Support has been designed to give relief to people suffering with pain from plantar fasciitis. This condition affects many people, especially runners.
Plantar fasciitis is an injury which can afflict anyone who either stands on their feet for long hours each day or those who run, walk or hike on a regular basis. This type of repetitive strain injury is exacerbated when walking or running on hard surfaces such as pavements and concrete.
Our feet have a long, fibrous band of tissue which runs from our toes to our heels. The purpose of this tissue is to support our foot arch and the muscles in our feet. With overuse, it’s easy to over stretch the tissue and cause minute tears, which in turn cause inflammation which inevitably leads to pain.
Oddly enough, it’s women who suffer more from plantar fasciitis than men. Note that it’s a condition which will definitely be more prevalent in people who are overweight and those who are on their feet for many hours during the day.
Your risk may also increase if you:
- Wear shoes which have thin soles
- Have flat feet
- Frequently wear shoes with high heels
- Suffer from a tight Achilles tendon
- Have an usual gait or stride
- Wear running/exercise shoes which are no longer giving you the support you need.
Wearing the Mueller Arch Support can help prevent this problem, especially if you fall into one of the above categories. It can also alleviate the problem once plantar fasciitis has taken hold.
The Mueller Arch Support can be used for:
- Support for advanced knee arthritis
- Medium stability for moderate to major ligament sprains
- Medium stability for moderate to major muscle strains
- Providing physical restraint around the knee area
- Helping to restore knee stability
- Slowing down joint degeneration
- Protecting the knee against recurrence of old injuries
