One of the most common issues our customers want to address is heel pain, and Plantar Fasciitis is usually the culprit.
According to the Mayo Clinic, Plantar Fasciitis involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia). It causes a stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. The pain typically decreases as you go about your day, but it might return after long periods of standing or after rising from sitting.
While we at Klika Shoes aren’t doctors we do have a great deal of experience helping people deal with heel pain. The footwear you choose can help to ease the shooting pain of Plantar Fasciitis. While you may think it’s best to find a flat cushy pair of shoes, you actually want the opposite. It’s important to have a supportive arch that will help alleviate the tension on the inflamed tendon. Having a moderate heel also helps to reduce the stress put on the Plantar Fascia by our body mass, exercise, and every-day life.
If you’re dealing with heel pain, stop in and talk with one of our experienced salespeople. We will talk with you about you’re symptoms and work to find a great pair of shoes that help to alleviate your pain, serve the necessary purpose, and even look great!
