How Pedors Shoes Work For Plantar Fasciitis

In medical terms, plantar fasciitis resulting in heel pain is a result of an abnormal force pulling upon the plantar fascia and medial intrinsic foot muscles attached to the calcaneus.

If those muscles are overworked (perhaps due to extra weight bearing) and under supported (perhaps due to lack of arch support in the footwear worn) then the muscles become over-stretched during the course of the day.

Morning Foot Pain

When you go to bed at night for an extended period of time and your fascia muscles are not being constantly stretched as they are during the day, the muscles contract. So when you get up in the morning you suffer with that first step as it stresses the fascia muscle where it connects to your heel (calcaneus) and ouch, heel pain.

The key is to provide your arch with great support during the day and there are different ways to do this. One is to wear shoes with good arch support built in, another is to wear an orthotic with good arch-like quality products from Pedors.
