A great article from Debarati S Sen published in Times of India. To read the complete article click here: Say Good Morning to Pain Free Feet.

Here is an excerpt:

Plantar Fascial loading is common among women who stand for long hours — homemakers who cook and clean on their feet and working women, who commute by trains and stand for long. What actually starts off as a foot pain will later affect the whole biomechanics (study of how the bones, muscles, tendon and ligament work together to cause movement) of your body.

Here are ways to deal with it:
– Before you get out of your bed, do some warm-up and stretching. Simply move your foot and ankle — sideways, up and down.
– Do cold fomentation for 15-20 minutes three to four times a day.
– Wear scientifically designed orthotics (insoles and slippers) and the right-size footwear (length and width).
– Do strengthening exercise for foot and ankle, targeting the weak and tight muscles.
– In case you are overweight, take proper nutrition to ensure weight loss. This will stop excessive overloading on joints such as knees.

    Mothers day falls around the same time as my Moms birthday, so it has double importance for me. I have finally nailed it this year with a useful mothers day gift. your socks! Being a 33 year old man, I outgrew the flowers and Archies greeting card thing for Mom a long time back. Have taken her for dinners and movies too. My Mom, who is 56 years old has swollen feet and suffers from heel pain all the time. 3-4 months back the pain was unbelievable and went to see a doctor. He asked her to lose some weight, stop putting her feet in water (she washes clothes by hand daily in spite of a washing machine!) and asked to stop wearing heels (even the small heel that women’s slippers have). He recommended orthotic shoes or insoles but my Mom doesn’t wear shoes. So, she has been using Bata slippers all the time inside and outside the house and was not happy about it. A friend had whatsapped me about your website and product a month or so ago. After a bit of internet research, I had bought your compression sleeve for her to try out. It really made a big difference. She got a good pain relief from it and could use it with her chappals and fancy slippers, unlike the insoles. She got used to wearing them pretty much most of the time (even when sleeping!), and has benefited lots from it – the pain is mostly gone and she is able to get through her household chores pretty uch pain free most days. So, for this birthday and Mothers day, I ordered 6 socks for her this Mothers day – 3 pairs in black and 3 in white colours. They arrived yesterday and she was very happy – a useful, practical gift unlike most of the birthday outings, flower bouquets! Your new packaging is also useful – she has stacked them up in her almirah and plans to use one each day. Thanks for your help.

    Now, I just need to work on getting her to use the washing machine!
