Individuals who spend a lot of time on their feet – whether because of their occupation or athletic activities – may begin to feel intense heel pain after some time.
A common cause of this is plantar fasciitis, a condition in which the band of tissue at the bottom of the foot becomes overused and stressed.
The condition, which is also known as fallen arches, most often occurs in people aged 40 to 60, as well as those with flat feet, very high arches or a tight Achilles tendon.
Luckily, there are correction options for the condition that don't require surgery or drugs. The Medial Mid-foot Brace by Alpha Orthotics has been shown to be effective in providing proper support to the arch, thereby reducing the pressure that causes plantar fasciitis.
Moreover, it's comfortable to wear. It features a special arch support pad that is placed in the middle of the foot and secured by an adjustable, lightweight elastic band.
