Got a Plantar Fasciitis?

GOT A PLANTAR FASCIITIS PAIN? Do These 10 Things Now! 1 TAKE MEDICATION Anti inflammatory medication is effective in reducing the pain. 2 FIND THE CAUSE Never get in to anything that causes the pain (you need to identify what activity is causing you the pain - sitting for a longer period of time, running, jogging, sitting for a longer period in the same position, etc ). 3 DO STRECHING A simple calf muscle stretching for about 5-minutes can make a lot of difference. Just keep in mind that while stretching ensure that your toes are not upwards, this may worsen the existing condition and can give more pain. 4 GET A PF SLIPPER/NIGHTSPLINTS Immediately wear a PF shoe or slippers to reduce the morning pain after rising from the bed. 5 GET INSOLES Got flat feet? Then, consider wearing an insole. In the early stages of Plantar fasciitis, insoles have shown a dramatic improvement in reducing the pain. 6 REPLACE YOUR SPORTS SHOES Sports shoes that have become too old or lost their cushioning and support have to be replaced with the new one that gives adequate support to your heel. 1 REST YOURSELF This is very important. Rest yourself and avoid doing things like standing for a longer period of time. If pro- longed sitting cannot be avoided, then try to extend your calf muscles. 8 USE AN ICE PACK The best thing to reduce pain is to use an ice pack on the area where you are experiencing the pain. Freeze a water bottle and roll in to your arch, to avoid ice burn you can simply run baby oil (or any oils suitable for applying over the body) over the arch. 9 VISIT A PODATRIST If the pain is severe, immediately see a podiatrist. The sooner the treatment is, the sooner the recovery period is. 10 THINK POSITIVE Have a positive attitude within yourself and a complete faith in the treatment which you may undergo SOURCES HEELPAINRESOURCE
