plantar fasciitis socks I’ve recently been bombarded with emails and messages about whether or not plantar fasciitis socks provide relief for painful plantar fasciitis. So I’ve decided to write a blog post that answers all your questions about this relatively new product on the market.

Here are some of the questions that I have received:

Are these socks effective for plantar fasciitis treatment?  Are they just another gimmick that takes away my money and not my pain?  How do they work?  What exactly is a plantar fasciitis sock?

Before I jump right in and address these questions, let’s learn a little more about this product.

Plantar fasciitis socks are usually made up of a heavy cotton material that is worn and stretches to the top of the calf muscle.  It usually has two adjustable straps, one at the top and one at the bottom.  The purpose of these straps is to adjust the tension so that your foot is able to be stretched to help relieve your plantar fasciitis pain.   The main goal of these socks is that they should be worn at night so that the first few steps out of bed in the morning is like you are walking on a warm sandy beach instead of broken glass!

How exactly does this sock help with your plantar fasciitis?

These socks are designed to stretch the plantar fascia of your foot overnight so that it’s able to heal properly in a stretched position so you feel relief in the morning.  The way the sock is engineered is that, when worn,  it doesn’t allow the bottom of your foot to cramp or seize up at all.  Bottom line is that because of the way it’s been designed, there is no way that the plantar fascia of your foot can contract, thus creating more pain and suffering.  The goal is provide relief by keeping your foot fascia in a flexed/stretched position so it can heal properly.

Some things to note about these plantar fasciitis socks:

They will not make your plantar fasciitis symptoms worse, regardless of how long you wear it.  It’s totally safe and will not disrupt your sleep.  Overtime, they can actually help strengthen the plantar fascia of your foot.  They are very easy to use and, thankfully are machine washable!

So do these socks get my stamp of approval?  ABSOLUTELY!  I highly recommend them and think they are great for people who have tried everything else that has taken away their money but no their pain!
