Sliding into Comfort: Athlete-Approved Sandals for Plantar Fasciitis

Athletes, we understand the daily grind – the intense training sessions, the on-the-field battles, and but often the off-the-field battles get overlooked. We know how important treating nicks and pains are to remain a high performing athlete. Playing sports at an intense level over time takes a toll on your feet, especially for those grappling with plantar fasciitis. Prevention is also key, given plantar fasciitis is one of the most common injuries amongst athletes. Enter a game-changing solution that merges passive therapy with active prevention: sandals with a built-in ball that mimics the therapeutic effects of a roller as you walk.

Why Athletes are Susceptible: Unpacking the Factors

    1. High-Impact Activities: The nature of many sports involves repetitive high-impact movements, putting strain on the feet and contributing to conditions like plantar fasciitis. Without proper recovery, this toil over time can cause injuries. Despite common thought, plantar fasciitis can even occur in children if proper prevention isn’t taken. Foot care is for everyone.
  • Improper Footwear: Ill-fitting shoes, inadequate arch support, or shoes that lack proper cushioning can exacerbate foot problems, especially for athletes who spend extended periods on their feet.
  • Foot Anatomy: Those with flat feet are considered to be more at risk for foot injuries like plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that supports the arch of the foot, and when the arch is lower than normal (flat feet), it can put increased strain on the plantar fascia, leading to inflammation and pain.

    Comprehensive Foot Health Tips for Athletes

    1. Stretch and Strengthen: Incorporate regular stretching and strengthening exercises for the feet into your routine to enhance flexibility and resilience. The AVOS Therapy Slides are designed to strengthen your foot as you move, offering recovery as you go about your day.
    2. Proper Footwear Selection: Invest in shoes that provide proper arch support, cushioning, and are suitable for your specific sport or activity. Consider investing in orthotic insoles you can put in your cleats or shoes.
    3. Listen to Your Body: Pay attention to any signs of discomfort or pain, and address them promptly. Ignoring early warning signals may lead to more severe foot issues.
    4. Cross-Training: Include low-impact activities and cross-training in your regimen to reduce the repetitive stress on your feet and promote overall foot health.
