Eliminate Plantar fasciitis pain
Phits 3D Print Custom Insoles For
Why are Phits 3D Print Custom Orthotics perfect to help anyone experiencing Plantar Fasciitis.
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common type of heel pain and occurs when the fascia under the foot that supports the arch fails becoming weaker due to injury, trauma or altered foot mechanics. Research tells us it effects 1 in 10 adults…
Foot issues can also be influenced by the knees, hips, and pelvis.
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning, often described as walking on eggshells.
As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.
The plantar fascia is a band of tissue (fascia) that connects your heel bone to the base of your toes. It supports the arch of the foot and absorbs shock when walking allowing the feet to function correctly.
Tension and stress on the fascia can cause small tears. Repeated stretching and tearing of the facia can irritate or inflame it, leading to plantar fasciitis.
Remember foot movement and structure are like the foundation of a house, they need to be solid and supportive.
Plantar Fasciitis can take 12-18 months to resolve on its own and often associated with other issues such as Achilles tendinopathy and flat feet, a few of the many reasons for the long recovery.
Here at Deansgate Osteopathic clinic we use Phits custom insoles along with the latest in technology and design to provide the most complete insole for injury treatment, rehabilitation, and performance.
The research for the use of insole designed specific for you is strong, the more a orthotic is built around your feet and not generic the better it performs.
Today orthotics are used for not just helping plantar fasciitis and issues such as flat feet but to maximise performance with premier league clubs such as Manchester city and Manchester United utilising the very same technology we have he in the clinic.
ATHLETIC WEEKLY one of the largest running magazines explored the use of 3D Printed Insoles for Plantar Fasciitis with amazing feedback from world class athletes such as Lily Partridge, who was the British Champion at the London Half Marathon in March 2020. In the article she is quoted “Phits Insoles are amazing, I couldn’t imagine not having them in my shoes and definitely feel that I am running much more balanced. Even in the first run I felt like I was held in a much better position!”
World marathon record breaker Paula Radcliffe who explains “Without the support of Phits Insoles, it would have been impossible to recover after my surgery and most likely I wouldn’t have been able to continue my running career.”
Phits 3D Printed Orthotics For Plantar Fasciitis & Performance
Ground contact provides the foundation for movement with foot, knee, hip and back pain often associated with poor walking and running mechanics, research highlights how issues can stem from the feet.
Think of a house and the foundations it is built on, foundations need to be solid and hold the building, with the body movement the feet are the foundation to walking and running, therefore matching insoles construction to the foot movement maximises ground contact, a custom insole (orthotic) specific to you is placed into the shoe, trainer or boots.
With 3D printed insoles you can get the best possible fitting providing stability and function.
Orthotics or insoles are not new, but the technology has developed immensely, no longer is it based on castings, foam imprints or visually watching how you run or walk (gait cycle). Older technology lent itself to bulky stiff and not so perfect fitted insoles that proved difficult to fit in many shoes and uncomfortable to wear, they also didn’t consider how the feet move during the Gait cycle whilst taking into account the left and right foot when compared are very different. If you have ever had your feet measured or a child’s foot you will have discovered even the size differs.
Phits 3D printed insoles are lightweight, stable, flexible with an accuracy of 0.1mm provided by 8000 pressure sensor FootScan unit, your gait motion walking or running is measured.
This FootScan system monitors the mechanics of weight distribution, balance, and directional force, basically precisely how you walk or run.
Information that in the past simply could not be measured and certainly not observed by the human eye.
This gives 3D printed insoles many clinical advantages over traditional orthotics, including directional and localised stiffness to cater for the individual’s unique foot structure and movement.
Whilst athletes and footballers are looking for the 1% improvements in everything they do we use them clinically for injury recovery, prevention, and to help keep injury free.
What many people often do is:
Try exercises from the internet- this can be useful but if you don’t understand the injury this becomes guess work and can make things worse.
Buy a pair of generic insoles, unfortunately these are non-specific and do not take into account foot differences, size, movement, pressure and weight distribution.
Depending on the action you take Plantar Fasciitis can take a lot less time to resolve.
What do I do you want to do to sort the pain in the bottom of my foot, to resolve your plantar fasciitis!
The first thing to do is
1:Get an assessment and correct diagnosis.
2:Understand how the injury occurred and how the body moves
3:Assess foot mechanics
4:Carry out a Gait Analysis- Dynamic (how your move) Static.
5:Get custom insoles built specifically for you
6:Integrate treatment to encourage tissue recovery, ie help the plantar fasciitis heal.
7:Integrate exercise for the whole body to help you manage and prevent a return.
