A new approach to plantar fasciitis treatment

Introducing the Solushin®

Support your treatment by reducing tension in your calf muscle

What is plantar heel pain?

A quick lesson on plantar fasciitis

Plantar heel pain is one of, if not the most common complaint presented to foot and ankle specialists, with upwards of 11-15% of the adult population affected [1]. It inhibits physical activity, often leading to a self-perpetuating cycle of weight gain and an inability to lose it through regular exercise

Pain usually presents upon initiation of weight bearing activities before subsiding, only to return as the volume of exercise increases. While not usually disabling, it can severely limit the amount of weight bearing activities a sufferer can undertake. 

The following have been identified with supporting evidence as the most common risk factors: 

  • volume of physical activity
  • body weight, foot posture
  • ankle range of motion
  • presence of anatomical variations of the calcaneus

how can the solushin help?

Improving your ankle's range of motion/dorsiflexion

When you purchase the Solushin treatment program, you will receive:
  1. A Solushin to improve your ankle's dorsiflexion/range of motion
  2. Complimentary load management program (volume control)

This will address 2 of the 4 risk factors discussed above.

A reduced range of ankle dorsiflexion has also been linked to plantar fasciitis, with individuals with less than 5 degrees of ankle range of motion being 8 times more likely to present with symptoms consistent with plantar fasciitis [10].

So, why can a tight calf cause pain under your foot? Higher tension in the calf muscles pulls on the Achilles tendon, creating unwarranted stresses on your heel bone. 

The Solushin has shown, in a clinical setting, an ability to improve ankle range of motion by 21% in an hour of wear during low activity (sitting, walking etc). By wearing the Solushin for an hour a day, it can be expected that you will effectively improve your ankles range of motion and improve your dorsiflexion.
