On the Mend: Post Plantar Fasciitis Workout Pointers to Aid Recovery

Plantar fasciitis is a common heel problem characterized by a stabbing pain which is usually felt in the morning when doing the first steps. This condition is common to runners, hikers and to people whose works involve prolonged standing. Plantar fasciitis may also happen if you wear shoes that are not well-fitted or have inadequate support. It can happen at any age but it is more common to people of ages 40-60 years old.

When the plantar fascia ligaments in our foot are stretched irregularly, a tear or inflammation is likely to develop which then leads to pain felt around the heel’s surface. Ice therapy is a good first aid to alleviate inflammation and pain from plantar fasciitis. To do this, use a frozen water bottle. Roll the bottle back and forth under your foot. Do this 10 minute several times a day. Pain should significantly reduce a day after. You can also use over-the-counter pain relievers. Rest and reduce activities that may have caused pain.
