Relief is in sight! The folks at Swede-O are well known for products that prevent and rehabilitate ankle related injuries, and thankfully, they also have some products for the treatment of Plantar Fasciitis. For those not familiar with Plantar Fasciitis, you’re very lucky, as this is a painful condition that is the result of inflammation of the thick band of tissue (plantar fascia) that connects the heel bone to the toes. Nighttime treatment of Plantar Fasciitis can help speed the recovery process and prevent that often painful first step out of bed in the morning. The Swede-O Thermal Plantar DR is made out of a soft, material with a thermal lining and rigid straps that pull the toes upwards and place the foot in a slight dorsiflexion (backward bending) position. This helps minimize stress on the inflamed area of your foot and keeps your foot in a stretched position. It’s less obtrusive than the hard sided boot braces out there, but at the same time it effectively stretches the plantar fascia. Plus the thermal properties of the material aid in pain relief and in reducing the inflammation. Swede-O also has a Low Profile Performance sock with varied compression levels to target specific areas of your foot that provides firm support and much welcome relief during the day. Swede-O has your daytime and nighttime solution for Plantar Fasciitis!
