Formatl Wear giving a formal Pain

A lot of people suffer from various foot conditions. One of the most common foot problems is Plantar Fasciitis. It is a condition where the plantar fascia suffers extreme stress or tear. When this happens, pain and discomfort are usually felt by the patient. To provide relief, using massaging insoles like Hydrofeet® is normally advised. Plantar fascia is a band of connecting tissue that supports the arch of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis has several causes. Among them are the following:

  • Flat Feet condition (Pronated Feet), which causes the plantar fascia to be overstretched,
  • High Arched Foot (Supinated Feet), which causes the plantar fascia to be tight, and
  • Obesity, which causes the plantar fascia to be subjected to extreme pressure from the body

Podiatrists (foot specialists) usually recommend a more conservative and non-invasive treatment like the use of massaging insoles for mild cases of Plantar Fasciitis. Using Hydrofeet® massaging insoles can help manage this condition by way of the massage it provides. The massaging action relaxes the plantar fascia to lessen the effects of stress on it.

Hydrofeet® for example, uses FDA-approved liquid glycerin filling. This liquid filling provides a unique massaging action due to its back and forth movement under the feet. This action is unique to Hydrofeet® and cannot be found in other massaging insoles in the market.

The filling used in Hydrofeet® massaging insoles absorbs impact better compared to memory foam or gel filling found in other massaging insoles.

Plus, the material used in making this foot massaging insoles combines the toughness of rubber and lightweight property of plastic. This material is called thermoplastic polyurethane (TPU). Because of this, Hydrofeet® massaging insoles can withstand tremendous amounts of pressure and force. This makes it ideal to be worn by anyone who wants relief from their foot pain, especially those suffering from Plantar Fasciitis.

There are other different methods of treating Plantar Fasciitis. But a lot of these treatments are usually more expensive and risky. In cases like this, it may always be best to start with more conservative treatments like wearing massaging insoles or other specialized orthotics. Conservative treatments usually work in a lot of cases. It is crucial that the plantar fascia is relaxed in managing the pain that goes with this foot problem. When it comes to selecting the right massaging insoles, it is imperative that one looks for a product that provides a massaging action like Hydrofeet®.
