Plantar fasciitis socks are used to treat and provide relief from the painful symptoms of plantar fasciitis, an inflammation of the fibrous tissue that connects your heel bone to the toes. Plantar fasciitis is relatively common and is usually characterized by a sharp, stabbing pain felt at the bottom-middle of your foot near the heel.
Plantar fasciitis socks are a specialty sock designed specifically for people suffering from plantar fasciitis, however they can assuredly be worn by anyone who is experiencing foot arch pain and throbbing foot tissue. Plantar fasciitis socks work to provide extra support to the fibrous tissue and tendons in the arch of your foot that connects the heel to the toes.
Plantar fasciitis socks primarily work to:
Provide Arch Support and Increase Blood Circulation
Treat Existing Heel Pain and Swelling
Provide Ankle Support
Increase Comfort and Mobility
Prevention of General Foot Pain and Problems
Plantar fasciitis socks feature an open-toed design, so this makes them great as all-purpose footwear so you can get relief and treatment any time. Wear them around the house with no shoes for extra support, and wear them on the go with sandals, sneakers, boots, flip flops or almost any other type of shoe.
You can also wear them under a normal sock. If you plan to wear plantar fasciitis socks in a fully enclosed shoe or boot (with or without any traditional socks over the plantar fasciitis sock) you may want to consider applying moleskin to your toes to prevent blisters. Healthline.com provides a great guide here on how to use moleskin to prevent blisters.
Bottom line: wear them any time you want relief. You can wear them all day and you can also wear them while you are sleeping. At a minimum, you should definitely aim to wear them whenever you are on your feet moving around.
Remember: whether you are wearing plantar fasciitis socks or any other type of sock, the best way to take care of your feet properly and keep them healthy is to change your socks at a minimum of once every 8 hours - so be sure to purchase enough socks to sustain your laundry cycle.
