During the past twenty-plus years of treating patients for their foot, ankle, knee, and lower back problems, I realized that there was nothing on the market to offer my patients who wanted relief from their painful feet when walking around their houses barefoot, or in sandals/slides/flipflops. Then, around four years ago, I came up with the solution… And I created heelsnaps!
Plantar fasciitis is a common foot condition, that causes pain in the heel and/or medial arch of the foot. A pair of shoes with a stiff heel counter (the rear upper of the shoe) is a widely suggested treatment for plantar fasciitis, as it helps to put the subtalar joint of the foot in a neutral position, thereby taking strain off of the plantar fascia. Of course, with no heel counter, there is no such support if you wear sandals, slides, or walk barefoot.
