Find immediate relief for sore feet in the morning with SOLE orthopedic sandals.
What causes foot pain first thing in the morning, and how orthopedic sandals offer relief.
Foot pain can take many forms, and has many causes, but few are as common or as unpleasant as sore feet first thing in the morning. To have foot pain when you get up that’s so bad you can barely walk, or you can only walk on your toes, is a terrible way to start your day. So what causes sore feet in the morning, and how can it be avoided?
Addressing the root cause of your sore feet might take some time, but the good news is that there is a way to find immediate relief. Stepping straight into SOLE orthopedic sandals will allow you to start your day without pain by reducing strain on the affected area. First, it’s important to understand what’s causing the pain in the first place.
What causes sore feet in the morning?
Morning foot pain is most often caused by a condition called Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis occurs through injury to the plantar fascia – a ligament that runs from your heel to your toes. This ligament plays an important role in the foot’s work of supporting and carrying your body’s weight. When the plantar fascia becomes inflamed it can cause severe pain in the bottom of the foot, especially in the area just in front of your heel.
Plantar fascia pain is worse in the morning and after sitting for long periods because the plantar fascia contracts during long periods of rest. The pain can subside after the ligament has had time to warm up and stretch, but in severe cases it persists all day.
Get relief from foot pain first thing in the morning.
There's a way to take those first steps without aggravating your inflamed plantar fascia. SOLE orthopedic sandals feature unrivaled arch support that is clinically proven to reduce plantar fascia strain by up to a third. By putting on SOLE sandals as soon as you wake up, you give your plantar fascia time to warm up and stretch gradually. Reducing strain and pressure on your inflamed plantar fascia will allow you to walk around the house without pain and focus on starting your day the right way.
The firm orthopedic support cradles your foot’s contours, helping your feet carry their load and easing them into a pain-free morning. All SOLE flips will also mold to your feet over a few days of wear, making them more and more comfortable as each day goes by.
