Why Do I Need Orthotics?

"Why do I need orthotics? With plantar fasciitis, there is too much tension on the plantar fascia, which is the ligament that supports the arch. This tension strains and inflames the ligament and the heel bone, resulting in pain. An orthotic supports the arch, eliminating the tension on the ligament. This gives the ligament a chance to heal and help to prevent future problems."
