It can be one of the most frustrating pains a runner has to deal with. Whether it's a mild ache at the base of the heel when you first stand up, or a sharp pain across your sole with every step, plantar fasciitis can keep you from exercise and fitness.
When looking for plantar fasciitis insoles, Bauerfeind lead the pack with the Redux Heel 2. Combining gentle sloping arch support with a guided heel cup and biomechanic suspension spring, it works to alleviate pain from even the most gruelling of symptoms and help you recover faster. For plantar fascia insoles, there's only one word you need to remember. Bauerfeind.
How do these help me?
These insoles work by stimulating various parts of your insole to restore normal gait of the foot. This combines with adjusted posture that takes pressure away from the plantar so that it can recover while you still walk and move around.
Will these weaken my muscles?
While cheaper and less effective braces can cause an issue known as reliance (where the muscles become weaker and rely on the brace), Bauerfeind have perfected the blend of stability and movement. By restricting or immobilising specific parts of the ankle that need it, and freeing up the rest, you can continue to exercise, building and maintaining strength in the joint.
