Typically, doctors will recommend sitting for up to 20 minutes per foot and rolling the arch of the foot on a ball. For most people, this simply takes too long. Who has time to dedicate to stretching your feet for 40 minutes each day?
AVOS Therapy Slides make this process nearly effortless. By building in a pressure point in just the right spot, our shoes allow you to properly stretch as a part of your daily routine. Simply put on a pair of AVOS while making breakfast, washing the dishes, or walking your dog around the block. You will no longer need to sit and focus on actively stretching.
How Do I Use AVOS To Help With Plantar Fasciitis?
AVOS Therapy slides come with 3 sizes of ball shaped inserts to accommodate for different shaped feet and pressure sensitivities. We always recommend starting with the smallest size insert to allow your feet to get used to this treatment. From there you may notice you would like more pressure and can move up to the next larger insert. It's important to note that it isn't necessary to use the largest insert unless that is what you prefer. AVOS help to increase circulation and flexibility no matter which size you use.
How Long Does It Take For AVOS To Work?
Our hope is that initial tightness will subside within a couple weeks of incorporating AVOS into your daily routine. From there, your AVOS will always be available to help keep your feet flexible and prevent the return of your symptoms.
Every body and injury is unique. Some people find AVOS to be the exact comfort and pressure they need immediately. However, others may notice tightness on their arch initially. This is normal, because the leading cause of ongoing Plantar Fasciitis is tightness in the arch. As you loosen the muscles in your feet and your flexibility returns to normal, the pain from Plantar Fasciitis will subside. Wearing AVOS regularly, as part of your routine, will prevent pain from recurring.
How Do I Treat Plantar Fasciitis?
Physical therapists around the world often recommend using a tennis or lacrosse ball to help ease the symptoms of plantar fasciitis and prevent it from recurring. Plantar Fasciitis and a lot of common foot ailments can be directly attributed to lack of flexibility in the arch. Without regular stretching, foot muscles can easily become stiff and inflexible, causing further tightness and injury to surrounding tissue.
How Can I Prevent Plantar Fasciitis?
You can prevent plantar fasciitis by stretching the arches of your feet before and after physical activity.
