Customized Insoles For Plantar Fasciitis
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
you are experiencing a sharp heel pain with your first steps each
morning, or while walking throughout the day, you might be suffering
from a condition called Plantar Fasciitis (also known as Plantar
The plantar fascia ligament is made of flexible, fibrous
tissue. This tissue stretches from the heel bone to the ball of the foot
thus forming an elastic arch to absorb the impact of walking, standing,
running and jumping on your feet.
A healthy foot can bear the brunt of
the estimated 5,000-10,000 steps the average adult takes each day.
However, in the case of injury, overuse, or strain, the plantar fascia
ligament may encounter damage.
In case of such a damage, the body sends
additional calcium to the injured arch which, over time, can cause
pointed bone spurs to form on the heel.
These pointed bony formation
digs into the fatty pad of the heel with each step you take, resulting
in a sharp pain.
What are the symptoms?
Fasciitis affects the soft tissues in the foot and hence it difficult
to trace it with an X-ray. In most cases, this condition is diagnosed
based on its symptoms. To rule out the possibility of a stress fracture
in case your symptoms came on very suddenly, your doctor may recommend
the symptoms below may help you identify if you’re suffering from Plantar Fasciitis:
Pain in the bottom of the heel when you walk. Thi pain is the worst in the morning, or after a long period of rest
A stabbing pain in the sole of your foot, more localized in the heel area.
A gradually building heel pain that may become apparent suddenly
Pain that may come and go often in the day.
Pain in the bottom of the heel that coincides with obesity or rapid weight gain
Pain on bottom of foot near heel that has lasted for more than a few days, or which you experience periodically over the course of months or years.
Pain in either of the feet (in both, in case you have Plantar Fasciitis in both feet).
Swelling, redness, or burning sensation in the heel area.
Limping and difficulty standing on the affected foot.
you are experiencing heel pain for the first time, or as a chronic
struggle, it’s important to seek treatment as quickly as possible.
of the cases can be solved by home remedies and conservative treatments.
An early intervention helps in a speedy recovery.
what causes plantar fasciitis?
Pronation is a gait abnormality that causes the foot to roll outward
excessively. This condition prevents the arch from distributing weight
evenly from the heel to ball of the foot.
Supination is a condition
similar to pronation; the only difference is that in supination, the
foot rolls inward excessively. Either of these two conditions can lead
to Plantar Fasciitis.
use of the feet- Your feet need the rest between exercise sessions or
long periods of standing. If not taken care of, can flatten and strain
the arch over time.
Arches- Due to various reasons the arches can be too high or too flat.
Since they are less optimized to bear the weight of impact and standing,
these kinds of arches are at greater risk for Plantar Fasciitis.
Weak Surrounding Tissue- Weak calf muscles, reduced ankle mobility, or tightness in the Achilles tendon at the back of the heel can damage the arches. These conditions can eventually cause Plantar Fasciitis.
Gain- Rapid weight gain, including weight gain from pregnancy, results
in extra pressure on the arch of the foot, resulting in damage and
The normal aging process biologically results in deterioration of the
elasticity of the soft-tissue and thus leading to a rigid and more
injury prone plantar fascia.
Shoes that don’t fit right, or don’t provide proper cushioning and arch
support, make your feet prone to plantar fasciitis.
- An injury that has damaged the arch or surrounding tissue of the foot
or heel can cause Plantar Fasciitis.
In some cases, one of the injured
foot can lead to Plantar Fasciitis in the other foot. This is because
the healthy foot has to absorb the extra strain and impact while the
injured foot heals.

3D Custom Insole
all the plantar fasciitis treatment products, the fastest and most
efficient solution would be 3D Custom Insoles for one simple reason that
every person is different; every foot is different- from left to right,
person to person.
Every pair of these insoles for heel pain is tailored
for an individual. The custom foot capture process looks at both the
feet separately so that one can get the right fit for their unique feet.
How orthotics 3D custom insoles help with plantar fasciitis?
normal healthy foot has a support arch in the mid-foot area.
various reasons, this arc flattens. This flattened arch results in heel
spur (and the pain thereof). A 3D custom insole helps
restore this arch due to its design.
Rigid custom inserts (orthotics)
realign the foot and provides long-term arch support.
What is orthotics 3D custom technology and how it is designed?
3D custom insole uses 3D printing technology.
First of all, a complete
biomechanical analysis is conducted using the latest foot scanning
technology to capture the highest quality scan possible.
With the use of
most advanced 3D printers, the customized orthotics for heel pain is
constructed based on the degree of altered biomechanics.
custom Insole model is made to correct the Biomechanics of feet.
Different orthotics for the disorder
The are the rigid orthotics that are used in advanced cases. Problems
like supination and pronation can be treated with customized orthotics.
After a thorough examination, the podiatrist will look at how the feet
are misshapen, and create inserts to force them back into the correct
These are the best treatment for plantar fasciitis and other wide range of foot issues.
Heat Moulding Orthotics-
Heat moulding orthotics can be used in less advanced cases. They
operate in largely the same way as customized orthotics.
orthotics are usually made of Ethylene Vinyl Acetate. This Ethylene
Vinyl Acetate is a specialized plastic that feels like soft rubber but
provides incredible support.
The inserts are heated, which softens the
material. They then mold to the shape of the feet and cool down, in such
a way that the problems will be corrected.
Lastly, there is also the option of getting insoles. Insoles are the
cheapest of all three options, but for good reason.
These are mass
produced cheaply to suit as many people as possible, so they are not an
effective method of dealing with individual problems.
While insoles can
have benefits, they should not be confused with orthotics.
How is insole designed for the individual foot?
3D Custom Insoles support all 3 arches of the foot, which make up the
They’re custom-made by hand, based on your unique feet,
body, and health profile. Just as no two bodies are alike, no two pairs
of custom orthotics are alike.
Over-the-counter orthotics may initially
cost less, but they only support one arch in your foot.
When only one
arch is being supported, it may not maintain the structure of your
plantar vault, and problems can start in other parts of your body. In
fact, “over-supporting” just one arch of the foot may actually cause
pain and symptoms, not relieve them.
Augmented Foot Support-
Your feet each have 26 bones and over 100 muscles. This set of bones
and muscles bear the entire weight of your entire body. Hence a good
quality support, such as of custom orthotics, is so important. The
full-contact, orthotics 3D custom insole supports all three anatomical
arches of the feet to give you a solid foundation.
In addition to being supportive, custom orthotics is much more
comfortable than over-the-counter insoles. This is largely because
custom orthotics are crafted to assist your unique fee requirement.
Shoe inserts sold at retail stores add additional cushioning and
support to ordinary shoes, but they’re not made to address your specific
foot issues. On the other hand, clinical studies show that prescription
orthotics decrease foot pain and improve function.
Enhanced Athletic Performance-
When your body is well-aligned, you’re able to perform better while
playing sports. Not only does the custom orthotics lower your risk of
injury, but research also shows that they help you jump higher and enjoy
a better sense of balance and body position.
