HOW VIO-MOTION SUPPORT CAN HELP REDUCE
HEEL PAIN (PLANTAR FASCIITIS)
By wearing orthotic shoe inserts or supportive shoes, you can align your feet and reduce over‑pronation. Extra arch support and realignment of the lower leg to its natural angle reduces the pulling and strain on the plantar fascia. This can take away a common cause of heel pain and reduce the aggravation of heel spurs. Vionic technology is shown to help reduce over‑pronation and associated conditions due to misalignment. If you are looking for shoes for plantar fasciitis, find a pair of shoes from Vionic that provide heel support, comfort and style. You can enjoy instant relief through this breakthrough technology built into a selection of stylish casual and dress shoes, walking‑specific shoes and sandals, supportive slippers and more.
HOW HEEL PAIN DEVELOPS
If your foot pronates too much, the ankle rolls too far downward and inward with each step. This can cause the arch to collapse and muscles and supporting structures to over‑stretch and lengthen. The ligaments running from the heel to the toes become strained, often leading to inflammation along the bottom of the foot. This inflammation and heel pain is known as plantar fasciitis. In response, the bone may also develop a bony growth (heel spur), right in the center of the heel. This too causes heel pain and can prevent an individual from walking with ease.
CAUSES OF FOOT HEEL PAIN
VIONIC SHOES SUPPORT NATURAL ALIGNMENT
A trial period of 12 weeks (targeting 150 heel-pain sufferers age 50+) showed that patients wearing Vionic contoured sandals were 68% more likely to report improvement in symptoms compared to those wearing flat flip flops. Results also showed that the contoured sandal provided similar relief to best-selling Vionic orthotic insoles in alleviating heel pain.
