Re: Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is due to overstretching of the tendinous band that supports the arch. There are many different types of arch supports that may be helpful, but there is not one that works the same on everyone. I do not normally find heel cushions helpful for this problem.

There are arch supports you can buy online. Generally, the more rigid = more support. Softness is not supportive.

It is impossible to tell which would be the right one for you without examining your feet and gait.
