Heel pain and plantar fasciitis is such a pervasive complaint at our clinic that we have created recommendations for home remedies for treating heel pain. One of the most important remedies is to keep the arches supported at all times by never going barefoot during treatment.
To do this, when you can’t wear shoes with supportive orthotics, we recommend wearing flip flops or sandals with built-in arch supports. An arch support keeps the foot from flattening while standing or walking and reduces tightness in the plantar fascia, allowing pain to subside. This is such as important part of treatment for heel pain that if it does not happen, it is likely that treatment will fail.
The best flip flops and sandals for heel pain are the Orthaheel healthy flip flops for men and women. Our patients love these flip flops because they have a built-in orthotic for superior comfort and support. Plus, these flip flops are fashionable and fun to wear, both inside and out.
Orthopedic flip flops allow the feet to heal naturally with a deep heel cup helps stabilize, support and realign the feet back to their natural position. Inflammation and tenderness in the heel is eliminated or reduced, and even problems like lower back and knee pain are relived.
The Orthaheel flip flops are also a good choice for people who suffer from foot conditions, such as overpronation, shin splints, heel spurs, Achilles tendonitis, and simply having tired, achy feet at the end of the day.
