Frequently Asked Questions 

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis), sometimes referred to as runners or joggers heel is one of the most common causes of heel pain. The pain is the result of  inflammation (itis=inflammation) caused by small micro-tears in the plantar fascia ligament, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects from the heel to your toes. Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain in the heel, usually at the very first steps in the morning. Although heel pain is the classic symptom, pain can occur in the arch of the foot or,  behind the toes (metatarsals) or some combination of these areas. For many people, once the foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position. For others, the pain may get worse during the course of activity.

What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?

The cause of Plantar Fasciitis is multi-factorial and can differ from person to person. It can be the result of an injury, over use, unsupportive footwear, obesity, over pronation, or some combination of these, and other bio-mechanical factors. It’s extremely important to assess and address the cause of plantar fasciitis. Chronic Plantar Fasciitis over time may transition into Plantar Fasciosis, a degenerative condition. In many cases, both conditions can exist at the same time. Plantar fasciitis is particularly common in runners and people who are on their feet for extended periods of time. In addition, people who are overweight and those who wear shoes with inadequate support are at risk of plantar fasciitis.

What is the Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy?

The Moch 10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy is a special band appliance that holds the Plantar Fascia ligament in a extended, elongated position. It is specially fabricated and woven to provide uniquely targeted pressure to support the Plantar Fascia ligament while standing, walking, running, or while being on your feet for extended periods of time. A Velcro Fastener provides flexibility in adjusting the tightness of the band. A 3″ x 4″ velvet pad fastens under the arch providing additional support to the ligament. By relieving the stress on the ligament, pain in most cases is eliminated or greatly reduced, for some almost immediately. On average, most users report receiving some degree of meaningful pain relief in the first 24 to 72 hours. The time it takes to become pain free varies from person to person and depends on the amount of damage there is to the plantar fascia ligament and whether plantar fasciitis has been a chronic condition.

What is Plantar Fasciosis

Plantar Fasciosis (osis=necrosis) is a degenerative disorder where there is actually death and scaring of the ligament tissue. Many people who are diagnosed with Plantar Fasciitis are in fact suffering from Plantar Fasciosis. And in some cases, both conditions will exist side by side. Symptomatically the result is the same, PAIN. Individuals who have tried every traditional treatment such as pain medication, topical analgesics, orthotics, special footwear, steroid injections, with no relief are most likely suffering from Plantar Fasciosis and not Plantar Fasciitis.

Does the Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy Work for Everybody?

No it doesn’t work for everybody. Based on questionnaires, surveys, and customer feedback from our monitoring of over 5000+ purchasers, the success rate is just under 94% for those with an accurate diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis. For those diagnosed with Plantar Fasciosis, the rate of success is just under 67%.

Why doesn’t it work for everyone?

First and foremost, because you man not have Plantar Fasciitis. There is a extremely high rate of misdiagnosis for plantar fasciitis. Almost 35% in the USA between General Practitioners, Orthopedic Physicians, Podiatrists, and Chiropractors.

Because you may in fact be suffering from some other condition and not Plantar Fasciitis or Plantar Fasciosis.

Other causes of heel and foot related pain can be any of  the following:

Will the Moch10 Remedy work if I have Plantar Fasciosis?

Yes it can in most cases it can, but it will typically take longer for meaningful pain relief, usually over a period of several weeks, and in severe cases, (people who have been suffering chronically for more than 1 year) it can take several months. Left untreated, chronic plantar fasciitis will transition into plantar fasciosis, especially if the cause is not identified and addressed. It’s not unusual for both conditions to exist side by side at the same time.

Does the Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy come in different sizes?

No, the Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy band comes in two configurations or sizes. Both the Basic and Deluxe are adjustable. Please see the product description of the differences between the BASIC and DELUXE Bands.

How long does it take for the Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy to work?

It varies from person to person and depends on the amount of damage to the Plantar Fascia ligament. Another factor is the length of time you have had the condition and whether this is the first occurrence. Those suffering for the first time or who have occasional flare-ups have the greatest success and many report being pain free immediately upon wearing the Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy Band.  However, the majority of purchasers report realizing meaningful pain relief between 24 and 72 hours from first applying it. And being pain free within 2 to 3 weeks.

How does the Moch10 Remedy differ from Orthotics devices such as lifts, custom insoles or inserts?

Inserts do work for some people. However for many they don’t. Often, the problem with inserts, regardless of how well fitted, is that they move and shift with each step you take. Each time you lift your foot off the ground, turn slightly to the right, left, or in another direction, the impact may be totally different. The Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy Band eliminates this issue by keeping precise and consistent pressure on the ligament at all times.

Why is your guaranty only 14 days if it can take longer to work?

While it may take significantly longer than 14 days for some to become Pain Free, users should experience some degree on meaningful pain relief within the first 14 day period. If they do not, then most likely, the Moch10 Plantar Fasciitis Remedy will not work for them. Just under 94% of all purchasers report getting some degree of Meaningful Pain Relief, assuming an accurate diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis. Of the 6% that reported getting little to no relief, data from our questionnaires, surveys, and customer feedback tend to support that they are suffering from some other condition instead of, or in addition to, plantar fasciitis.
