What is the best way to treat plantar fasciitis?

Are you suffering from plantar fasciitis? You’re not alone. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain and can be a painful and debilitating condition.


What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation of the tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes, also known as the plantar fascia. This injury is becoming incredibly common today due to the weakening of the bottom of the foot in modern society. 

This can happen from wearing shoes with too much support, not having a daily routine that "wakes up" the muscles on the bottom of the foot, or even from overuse.

This injury is incredibly common in the US, and it is estimated that 3 million people per year suffer from it.



The good news is that there are many effective treatments available to help relieve the pain and discomfort associated with plantar fasciitis. Today we want to focus on explaining how Lasso Socks are a key part of a successful treatment plan for plantar fasciitis.

Lasso Socks use a compression pattern that mimics taping, which provides gentle, consistent pressure on the foot and ankle in key areas. Specifically, the compression from the Figure 8 wrap pattern is what provides the primary benefit that helps to reduce pain and inflammation from plantar fasciitis.

This compression band creates activation of ligaments on the bottom of the foot, which is the only long term way to treat and recover from plantar fasciitis, which is initially a muscle imbalance issue. This activation over time allows adjacent ligaments to strengthen and help take pressure off the plantar fascia.

Our socks also help improve blood flow to the feet, which can help reduce swelling and promote healing.


Which solution is right for me?

When wearing Lasso Socks, it’s important to select a sock that fits properly and matches your style preferences. All lengths of our socks (low tab, crew, and grip) can be used to treat plantar fasciitis, as all 3 lengths include the Figure 8 wrap.

The low tab sock is great for daily wear and for sports like pickleball, tennis, and running. The crew length sock also includes ankle support and is ideal for use during sports that involve significant direction changes or workouts. The knee length sock is great for recovery and for travel, as well as all sports.

In addition to wearing the right gear, it’s important to follow other recommended treatments for plantar fasciitis. This includes stretching and strengthening exercises, icing, and wearing supportive shoes.

It’s also important to rest and avoid activities that aggravate the condition. And as always, make sure you talk to a physician if your conditions are not improving.
