A Flat Foot is just that - Flat!
A normal foot has an "arch" or "curve" to the bottom of the foot. In a Flat Foot, the arch has fallen down. In some severe cases, the fallen arch can even make contact with the floor.
In most cases, flat feet do not cause any serious problems, but some people can experience severe foot pain, aches and cramps. Some situations can contribute to other conditions, like plantar fasciitis, shin splints, knee pain and back pain.
This is most often a hereditary, structural condition, and affects approx. 25% of the population. Unusual repetitive forces applied to the foot (more common with sports enthusiasts), can develop into a flatter foot with a collapsed arch.
Obesity can be a culprit. Excessive weight will put undue stress on bone structure of your feet.
Far Infrared Socks help to reduce the pain in your feet caused by a Flat Foot. Flat feet can put stress on the ligaments and tendons in the foot, the ankle and up the leg.
Fallen arches can cause pressure points on the arch and other parts of the foot. Pressure points not only cause pain, but can lead to further complications, like bursitis, calluses, corns and metatarsalgia.
So, what does the infrared energy from the socks actually do? The natural FIR rays from the bio-ceramics fused into the thread bring more circulation to the foot and will help to reduce pain and foot cramps.
Wear Prolotex™ FIR Socks on a regular basis to help reduce foot pain and aches caused by flat feet..
