What is it?
According to WebMD, Your foot has thick, fibrous band of tissue (”fascia”) reaching from your heel to your toes. These tissues support the muscles and arch of the foot. When they’re overly stretched, tiny tears can occur in their surface. This can cause pain and inflammation.
Hi George, I want to alert anyone with plantar fasciitis that my remedy that I had always talked about has worked again on my planter fasciitis.
It was a minimal start but was bothering me even when I woke up in the morning and got out of bed. I bought three different types of insoles from CVS that said that they were for planter fasciitis.
But, then I went back and got an arch sleeve and the arch sleeve did the trick. It has a gel that goes under your arch and you put the sock over it and it raises the arch and even without question to the heel the pain starts to go away and mine has gone away in three days.
Thought the guys would like to know about this.

What Causes It?
Again from WebMD… a number of things can contribute to plantar fasciitis. While men can get plantar fasciitis, it’s more common in women. You’re also more likely to suffer from this condition as you age or if you’re overweight or on your feet for several hours a day.
Your risk also increases if you:
- Wear worn-out shoes with thin soles
- Have flat feet or a very high arch
- Often wear high-heeled shoes
- Have tight Achilles tendons, or “heel cords”
- Have an unusual walk or foot position
