The 3 Best Orthotics For Plantar Fasciitis
Dr. Jonathan Kaplan (please hyperlink to his physician profile page), a
foot and ankle specialist with
Hoag Orthopedic Institute, recently sat down with
Bustle.com to give insight in finding the best orthotics for people suffering from
pain associated with plantar fasciitis.
His advice: “While the amount of the arch support needed will depend
on the patient’s foot anatomy (i.e., whether you have a flat foot
versus a high arch), for the average person, a medium volume support along
the arch best incorporates comfort and support. I often recommend patients
avoid insoles that are hard, as they may push on the plantar fascia or
along the arch and cause more discomfort.”
