Why I Turned to Hydrofeet® Shoe Inserts for Plantar Fasciitis



I love my job as a professor. Educating people has always been my passion. The only thing that's bothersome about it is that it requires me countless hours of standing. Standing does not sound like a very good idea to me because I’m flat-footed. Standing for long hours puts forth stress on my feet. I have been chronically suffering from foot pains. However, I did not right away resort to some medical interventions as I thought that periods of rest would help alleviate the pain. Well, it did for a short while.

It was one, fine morning and I was about to get out of bed when I suddenly felt a stabbing pain on the soles of my feet. Since then, it has become my daily struggle to take my first step in the morning. I finally decided to consult a doctor. I was diagnosed to have plantar fasciitis, and among its medical interventions is the use of feet orthotics. There are several products out in the market but I have checked that Hydrofeet® massaging insoles has several positive feedback from satisfied customers.

Plantar fasciitis is a foot condition that involves swelling of the tissues that link the heel bones to the toes, medically termed as the plantar fascia which supports your foot arch. Prolonged standing strains the plantar fascia resulting to weakening and swelling. The cardinal sign of plantar fasciitis is the heel pain every time you get out of bed in the morning or after standing for a long period, but the pain may also worsen as the day progresses. People who spend longer periods on their feet are more predisposed to this condition. If heel pain is worst at night, you might be suffering from another condition such as tarsal tunnel syndrome, arthritis and other nerve problems. That’s why it’s critical to consult your doctor to have your condition assessed for proper medical intervention.

With Hydrofeet® massaging insoles, I am ensured that the arches of my feet are well supported as this is made of FDA-approved glycerin and durable thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU) coating. It works better than foam, gel, and rubber insoles. Some physicians would also prescribe you varying feet orthotics for various uses (e.g. sport, casual). Hydrofeet® shoe insoles, on the other hand, is designed to fit any of your shoes, so it spares you the hassle of changing your shoe inserts every time.

Within just a week of using Hydrofeet®, I’ve already felt improvements on my feet condition. I’m glad I turned to Hydrofeet® massaging insoles to help me cope with plantar fasciitis.
