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.

It’s lightweight and comfortable design means it can be worn continuously without any discomfort.
