Do you experience intense heel pain when you take your first step in the morning? If you do, chances are high that you suffer from Plantar Fasciitis and intense heel pain in the morning is one of the symptoms.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common types of heel pain problems developed in most people (including myself!). Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammatory condition caused by excessive wear and tear to the plantar fascia area of a persons foot.
The pains associate with a plantar fasciitis problem is usually felt on the underside of the heel and very often is most intense and painful when you begin your day the time when you stand up from your bed after a night sleep. The pain will also resurface after a period of rest and inactivity.
Resting your feet from the weight of your body is the easiest method of plantar fasciitis treatment. Since many foot injuries are a result of muscles and tendon imbalances, stretching some of your muscle groups apart from strengthening can help to alleviate your heel pain problems.
I have recently found this genius product that helps with plantar fasciitis pain, called DorsiFLEX. DorsiFLEX is a device that allows for a variable and adjustable positioning of your foot to achieve a deeper and more effective stretch of all lower leg and foot muscles contributing to plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, and other lower leg injuries.
DorsiFLEX is fabricated with 20 adjustable “fingers” that allow you to create a flat, upward incline or a 3-dimensional lateral incline.
Simply position your toes and forefoot laterally with our adjustable angles to achieve a novel 3-D stretch. The fingers have a rounded and smooth top surface for comfort and won’t bend under load. The fingers live on a twist axis that promises to give you repeatable and measurable angles every time you use DorsiFLEX. As an option, the sturdy base can be inclined an additional 10° with the incline legs.
The stretching exercises you do on the DorsiFLEX should concentrate on the Achilles tendon and calf muscles group. These exercises can be done at the comfort of your home to treat the condition and lessening the chance of recurrence plantar fasciitis pain.
DorsiFLEX may only weigh a little over 3lbs, but it is capable of supporting over 350lbs of weight! It also features a non-slip ring on the bottom that grips to any surface. It is also portable, so you can carry it and use it just about anywhere.
I recommend for everyone who suffers from heel pain to check out DorsiFLEX.
Shipping to Canada is an additional $70 USD, but I think this is reasonable, considering this device will relieve your heel pain!
I predict that this device will be THE device that medical professionals recommend for patients suffering from plantar fasciitis and other heel pains.
You don’t want to miss out on backing a product that has so much great potential!
