PLANTAR FASCIITIS PAIN / HEEL SPURS
Anyone can get sore, achy and tired feet. However, it is more likely to occur in people with flat or high-arched feet. It can also occur in people who are overweight, people who work on their feet all day. Also, people who are not used to being on their feet who suddenly engage in a higher level of activity. The problem with tired, achy feet is that it keeps you from moving at your best. It can even affect your mood and may lead to more serious foot issues.
The most common plantar fasciitis symptom is pain, which is normally felt at the heel and occurs where the plantar fascia attaches to the heel bone. The pain can be intense when getting out of bed in the morning or getting up from a stationary position..

Dr.Shaffer’s genuine care for his patient’s ability to participate in the everyday activities that make them happy and feel good. By looking at how they walk he can tell instantly where the pain is or will be over time in their feet.
Dr.Shaffer gave his socks to his patients and was delighted by the results. Over time his patients came back for more of his socks and step by step they walked better and felt better. This was because they could do much more on their feet then what they did before.
He decided to give patent his socks and bring his ideas and wonder socks to the rest of us. This is why our mantra is “Walk better… Feel better.” We put this mantra inside each Sockdocs™ item as a reminder that little improvements can add up to make a big difference. Being active and a participant in our feet’s health is directly connected to our overall health and wellness.
