What is Plantar fasciitis?
An inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes.
More than 3 million US cases per year
Lab tests or imaging rarely required
The inflamed tissue runs across the bottom of the foot.
Symptoms include stabbing pain near the heel. Pain might be worst in the morning.
Treatments include physical therapy, shoe inserts, steroid injections, and surgery.
The JOLT is a great way to relieve the pain and symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis!
This is the very reason that we discovered the JOLT. Deborah was experiencing pain in her foot and visited our Physical Therapist. He used the Jolt on her foot and Achilles tendon and we bought a JOLT therapy gun from him on the spot! She used it every day for a week or two and the pain went away. She took it with her to the National Senior Games in Minneapolis and when she pulled it out of her bag to work on her foot between games, the Senior Athletes nearby flocked to her side to ask her what it was and where to get one. Thus, the JOLT became an instant hit in the Senior Athlete community!
Giving your feet a massage can help relieve sore joints and muscles. First, knead the ball of your foot and then your toes, starting at the tops and working your way to the bottom. If you can't reach your feet, ask a friend or family member...AND USE THE JOLT!
