What is Plantar Fasciitis and Who Gets It?
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of foot pain presented to physicians, and is characterized by a sudden stabbing pain in the heel. This debilitating condition makes simple tasks like walking very painful, and often lasts for months.
Plantar Fasciitis involves inflammation or micro-tears in the thick connective tissue (plantar fascia) that runs across the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel bone to the toes. People who spend long periods of time on their feet at work are particularly susceptible, as are athletes and overweight individuals.
The patented ThermaWedge® device makes it easy to reduce the pain and inflammation of Plantar Fasciitis with five doctor recommended treatments in one simple and portable device.
