How can I relieve the pain of  Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is a condition where the band of fascia on the bottom of your foot becomes inflamed and painful. Often the pain in the foot and heel is worst in the morning and after periods of inactivity.  If left untreated the pain can become worse and a heel spur can develop.

When plantar fasciitis is caught early it can usually be treated without surgery using RICE Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation. An old coke bottle filled with water and then frozen makes a good tool for massaging the bottom of the foot to help relax those muscles and take some of the pressure off of the plantar fascia. Simply lay the bottle on the ground and roll the painful part of your foot over the bumps in the bottle. In addition to relaxing the muscles of the foot, you will want to relax the muscles of the calf. When the calf muscles (gastrocnemius and soleus) are tight they pull on the heel bone (calcanious) causing it to rotate thus putting more pressure on the plantar fascia. Stretching these muscles as well as some self massage can also help take the pressure off the plantar fascia and allow the foot to heal.

Massage can be very helpful in relieving the pain of plantar fasciitis. Please give us a call and we would be happy to work on your feet.
