In the United States, over a million people are diagnosed with plantar fasciitis. This is an ailment that affects the heel and arch of the foot. It’s caused by pressure on the plantar fascia (a thick band of tissue connecting the heel bone to the toes) from activities like running or walking for long periods. This pressure can cause the tissue to become inflamed and lead to heel pain.
Many products claim to treat plantar fasciitis, but not all of them are effective. Talar Medical has the best products to treat this condition and help you get back on your patients get back on their feet.
