ARCH + METATARSAL SUPPORT
AND HOW COMPRESSION CAN HELP
WHY YOU NEED ATHLETIC COMPRESSION
Foot Pain and Injury
Between flip-flops, high heels and any other shoe without adequate support, most people are fairly abusive to their own feet. The metatarsal arch, or the ball of your foot, takes the brunt of that abuse as it tends to carry the bulk of our weight, especially while standing or pushing off during walking or running. This continual abuse leads to a condition called metatarsalgia, which is pain and inflammation in the ball of your foot.
HOW WE CAN HELP
Provide Arch + Metatarsal Support
The snug feeling created by the stretchiness of the yarns used in TheraSport® and Core-Sport Athletic Compression aids in stabilization and support of the foot, especially in the metatarsal area. Paired with a good pair of supportive athletic shoes, these socks can help prevent plantar fasciitis, metatarsalgia, or other pain and injuries in the foot.
