Gear Geek: CEP Ortho+ Plantar Fasciitis Sleeve

Plantar fasciitis can quickly turn a nagging twinge into a season-ending injury if not treated effectively. Utilizing a combination of techniques and products, athletes can reduce their downtime from an injury. The CEP Plantar Sleeve is designed to be worn as both a recovery and performance aid. Its mapped compression increases blood flow and supports the ligament and muscles.

Runners will size this sleeve similar to a sock based on their exact foot size. The sleeve will not provide any additional bulk that would affect the fit of training shoes.

Runners should treat the symptoms of plantar fasciitis with physical therapy, soft tissue massage, and heat/cold therapy. During the time of training, utilize footwear that provides additional support to the feet to allow them to recover from the inflammation of the ligament.
