The DorsiFLEX: A One-of-a-Kind, Life-changing Device to Help Alleviate Foot Pain & Aid In Recovery of Plantar Fasciitis

Happiness walks on busy feet – and plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis or other lower leg injuries shouldn’t prevent people from doing what they love. Every year more than two million people deal with plantar fasciitis, Plantar fasciitis causes a sharp, stabbing feeling that’s sometimes described as a burning pain in the heel or arch of the foot. Symptoms of plantar fasciitis can include:

  • Pain on the bottom of the heel.
  • Increased pain after exercise, but not during.
  • Pain in the arch of the foot.
  • Pain that is worse in the morning or when you stand after sitting for a long time.
  • Swelling of the heel.
  • Continuous pain that can last for months.
  • A tight Achilles tendon.

At-home treatments and product solutions are usually low-quality, unreliable and frequently ineffective. So what's the solution to the pain of plantar fasciitis?

A new device called The DorsiFLEX has launched on Kickstarter to help alleviate the pain from plantar fasciitis and provide fast, measurable relief in weeks with regular use. The DorsiFLEX, a patented, adjustable stretching rehabilitation device that progressively targets, improves and strengthens the muscles causing these problems, may be the relief that plantar fasciitis suffers have been looking for.

How The DorsiFLEX Works

The DorsiFLEX provides relief by positioning the toes and forefoot laterally at different variable and adjustable angles to achieve a deeper, more effective stretch of all lower leg and foot muscles. Here are a few of the targeted stretches that can be done with The DorsiFLEX:

The DorsiFLEX provides a deeper, more targeted and amplified stretch of all relevant muscles and muscle groups. It’s convenient enough to use daily, even while brushing your teeth.

Pain Relief From Foot Injuries

Foot and lower leg injuries can cause what may feel like never-ending pain. Studies in The Journal of Pain show that:

  • 70 percent of people with plantar fasciitis report moderate to severe pain
  • 61 percent have this pain daily
  • 54 percent say it interferes with normal activities

Although designed specifically to help plantar fasciitis sufferers, The DorsiFLEX has the versatility to help relieve pain from various foot injuries. In a self-conducted study by The DorsiFLEX, people with injuries caused by inflexibility and lost foot function (due to limited ankle range of motion caused by muscle tightness and general muscle weakness) saw noticeable improvement from using The DorsiFLEX in just three to four weeks. A majority of participants were completely pain free in six to eight weeks.

"I started using The DorsiFLEX in the morning and at night, and within a couple weeks, the plantar fasciitis was gone and hasn't returned." Kelley W., Rock Hill, S.C.

People dealing with other foot and lower leg problems, such as morning heel pain, turf toe, rigid toes, calf, ankle or toe inflexibility and even limited ankle mobility, can benefit from The DorsiFLEX. The pain-relief device is an investment in recovery that can lead to strong, healthy feet for life.

The Inspiration Behind DorsiFLEX

Jim Cooper and Steve Sims are the inventors of The DorsiFLEX. The two friends and running enthusiasts both suffered from plantar fasciitis, and it was ruining not only their running but also the quality of their lives. After trying numerous pain-relief methods – from standing on tennis balls to frozen water bottles to stretches – they knew there had to be a better way.

Their idea to improve and innovate stretching for the lower leg, foot and heel injuries lead to the creation of The DorsiFLEX. The friends' mission is to help other plantar fasciitis sufferers with a product and method that works and eliminate and eradicate plantar fasciitis and heel pain forever. The rehabilitation device is simple to use yet incredibly effective in achieving those goals.

“DorsiFLEX gives people their lives back by giving them strong, healthy feet,” says Cooper. “I used to be a world-class distance runner, the 20th fastest Steeplechaser in the world in 1986. Developing bilateral plantar fasciitis in both feet put me on a path to create DorsiFLEX and help people from all walks of life and activity levels who suffer from plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis and tight calves.”
