This Fall, Go Back to School Without Plantar Fasciitis

Wichita, KS (PRWEB) August 21, 2013

The heel pain attributed to plantar fasciitis can be severe enough to keep major league sports stars on the bench, so it's no wonder that many high school and college athletes are concerned about keeping their feet limber and healthy. But athletes aren't the only ones on campus who are at risk from foot injuries.

Teachers spend countless hours standing on hard surfaces, too, and are just as likely to develop chronic debilitating foot pain as those who participate in high-activity sports. Students struggling to get to far-flung classes while carrying overloaded backpacks may also suffer from plantar fasciitis, making it harder to concentrate on their studies.

One of the best investments you can make in foot health this back to school season is the J Wedge, an inexpensive, non-invasive treatment option for the heel pain commonly associated with plantar fasciitis. Used three times daily, the J Wedge facilitates strengthening and stretching of the fascia in the foot, relieving the tension that causes heel pain.

Its lightweight and compact design makes the J Wedge perfect for daily use at home and on the go. The J Wedge is available in seven different colors to suit most team branding and is proudly made in the USA, right here in Kansas.

Inventors Mike and Carolyn Janzen—a runner and a physical therapist for a school district, respectively—are available for interviews; please contact us with any requests.
