Being diagnosed with plantar fasciitis is no joke. For one your feet hurt and the more you move around, the more it hurts. And it depends on the kind of shoe you wear. How do you pick the best shoe to wear for plantar fasciitis? The Right Fit A very important criteria for picking the best shoe is to make sure it fits. Get the right size for your foot. Not too tight and not too loose. Flexibility Because your plantar fascia is inflamed, you need to let it rest and heal. And if you need to be on the road and walking, you will want to make sure that the shoe provides sturdy enough support. To test that, take the shoe in your hands and see if you can bend it. The shoe should bend at the toes, but not in the middle of the foot. Arch Support If you have either a high arch or flat feet, you will want to get a shoe that will support your arch correctly. If you don't have enough support, you will end up unduly straining your plantar fascia ligament. Insoles Sometimes even the best shoe in the world doesn't provide the support your foot needs. Everybody's feet are different so different shoes work for different people. This is where insoles or shoe inserts help. They give added arch support. You can get gel ones or harder insoles. Depending on the severity of your plantar fasciitis, the amount of hardness you need will vary. Do you have horrible knee pain? If so, then it is a good idea to face the pain before it gets worse. Read on for some helpful information and at the end we discuss some ways to help support your knee... The Construction of the Knee The knee is essentially a ball and socket joint at which the two leg bones of each leg are joined. These two bones are connected by a series of ligaments and tendons. The outside of the knee is covered by a plate of bone known as the kneecap or patella. Together, these components make up the knee.
