The Evidence behind the INSPIRE Heel Pain Program:

What does all this evidence mean, and how does the INSPIRE Program utilise it?

The evidence shows: stretching, education, and taping to be a first line treatment. Followed by addressing load, related conditions, and footwear, followed with the addition of Shockwave therapy at 4 weeks and Custom Orthoses at 12 weeks.

The INSPIRE Heel Pain Program bases its principles off these guidelines. However relates this to the individual, speeds up the process through earlier use of interventions (Shockwave Therapy and Custom Orthoses), opposed to a wait and see method. Allowing for quicker results.

The INSPIRE program has utilised this evidence to formulate a measurable and tailored approach, delivered in such a way, allowing for such a high success rate.

It is a treatment delivered by a machine, which delivers kinetic energy into a shockwave (not an electric shock) at a very high speed, targeting the plantar fascia. It increases blood flow + metabolic activity, decreases pain, through depletion of substance – p from C-fibres, increases speed of tissue healing and reduction of scar tissue/calcification.
