Orthotics And Beyond Introduces Compressive Cold Therapy Products for Plantar Fasciitis Treatment
Date:12/4/2009

Plantar fasciitis heel pain affects over two million people in the United Stated each year, and cold therapy has been cited by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons as an effective treatment option. In response to these findings, Orthotics And Beyond now offers a selection of compressive cold therapy systems for plantar fasciitis treatment as a complement to its line of combination night splint therapies.

(PRWEB) December 4, 2009 -- Orthotics And Beyond, a leading international distributor of patient-ready orthopedic products, now offers comprehensive cold therapy systems to complement its line of orthopedic night splint solutions for the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Approximately 10% of all Americans are reported to suffer from plantar fasciitis during their lives, and the severe heel pain can afflict individuals of widely ranging activity levels. In fact, a recent case of plantar fasciitis continues to hamper a high profile professional athlete in the National Football League, which serves as an example of the debilitating pain and the complexity of treating plantar fasciitis.

Clinical studies show that the use of night splints alone can successfully treat plantar fasciitis over a 3-6 month timeframe, but the use of combination therapies is increasingly being recognized as a means of accelerating the healing process and improving overall outcomes. Cold therapy is cited by the American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons as an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis, and the healing benefits can be significant when cold therapy is combined with compressive stimulation. In response to these findings, Orthotics And Beyond now offers compressive cold therapy systems for plantar fasciitis as adjuncts to traditional night splint treatments. These new cold therapy solutions range from cost effective and customizable gel pack wraps to fully automated cooling systems that give compressive stimulation to the foot and heel. The Cryo Cuff® IC Foot System, for example, automatically recirculates cold water and provides full circumferential cooling and intermittent compressive stimulation to the plantar fascia and heel to reduce pain, improve blood flow, and to promote faster healing. These new cold therapy solutions and a complete line of plantar fasciitis night splints are now available for purchase on the Night Splint page on the Orthotics And Beyond web site.
