Australia’s leading brand in injury prevention and rehabilitation support products Thermoskin, has launched it’s newest product – the FXT Compression Socks. FXT Compression Socks combine medical grade compression, support and enhanced comfort for the pain management of various foot conditions including Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs and Arch Pain. One of the main features of the FXT Compression Socks is the ability to aid the treatment and manage pain associated with a common foot condition known as Plantar Fasciitis via the use of circuluar knit technology Plantar Fasciitis occurs when the Plantar Fascia (connective tissue that runs from the heel bone to the ball of the foot) is placed under too much stress, causing inflammation or damage to the tissue. This results in common symptoms such as heel pain, dull aches or stiffness in the foot. FXT Compression Socks assist with the management of this pain by featuring 3 different compression zones. The first zone provides upward compression to the base of the heel to unload stress at the Plantar Fascia attachment the second zone wraps around the foot for superior arch support and elevation, the third provides compression around the Achilles tendon.. Moisture wicking, anti-odour and anti-bacterial properties make this all in one design perfect for everyday and active wear.
