Love to wear Sandals but have Heel Pain?
Usually sandals are off-limits for those who have plantar heel pain or plantar fasciitis because they cannot accommodate the often-recommended treatment of wearing a custom or high-quality prefabricated orthotic insole.
This has all changed with the introduction of Vionic's line of sandals. The 150-person peer-reviewed study reveals that Vionic arch-contoured / supportive sandals are comparable in effectiveness to their best-selling prefabricated supportive shoe insoles in the short-term treatment of heel pain.
The study targeted heel-pain sufferers and displays results showing that after 12-weeks of using Vionic Sandals, the patients were 68% more likely to report improvement of symptoms compared to those wearing flat flip flops.
The ultimate conclusion of the study is the following, "Physicians can have confidence in supporting a patient's decision to wear contoured sandals or in-shoe orthoses as one of the first and simple strategies to manage their heel pain" and can hopefully avoid surgery.
Vionic Sandals for Plantar Fasciitis Heel Pain
The referenced study says, "Plantar heel pain that is present on first step out of bed in the morning or after a prolonged period of sitting is emblematic of a clinical diagnosis of plantar fasciitis. It predominantly occurs in fifth to seventh decades of life, and is estimated to affect 1 in 10 people over a lifetime, cost a quarter of a billion dollars per year in the United States and lead many to consult a physician or other health care practitioner."

Vionic's innovative Orthaheel orthotic technology helps align the feet from the ground up. So not only can it help with plantar fasciitis heel pain it can also help other conditions caused when your body is out of alignment.
