July 15, 2011 - PRLog -- Online shoes retailer, The Shoe Barrel, has good news for those suffering from heel pain resulting from a common foot condition called “Plantar Fasciitis”.   The retailer provides several types of shoes that are specially designed to help those with heel pain and other foot conditions.  Shoes are available to view and purchase at  The Shoe Barrel boasts that many have found great success with brands such as Ryn and Chung Shi, which feature rocker soles to address heel pain.  In addition, these types of shoes work to improve balance and gait, and may also provide toning benefits.

“Plantar fasciitis is caused when the fibrous tissue along the bottom of the foot is stretched away from the heel bone.  It causes the foot to hurt near the inside where the heel and arch meet, and can cause acute heel pain.  It can also lead to arch pain and heel spurs,” said Chris Cole, Licensed Certified Pedorthist.  “With so many people suffering from this condition, we want to let them know that this type of footwear can provide an easy solution to help ease the pain, and provide long term support.”

The leading cause of Plantar Fasciitis is over pronation, or “Flat feet”, which occurs when a person’s arch collapses during the walking process upon weight bearing.  It may also be caused by a foot with an unusually high arch, through increased physical activity, or because of excessive weight on the foot due to obesity or pregnancy.

The rocker soled shoes found at have been proven to ease the pain resulting from Plantar Fasciitis.  The best type of treatment for this condition also depends on an individual’s gait and foot type.  Those who think they may be suffering from Plantar Fasciitis, or are experiencing other types of foot pain, may call the experts at The Shoe Barrel for a free over the phone consultation regarding the best types of shoes for their individual needs.
