Help Ease Plantar Fascia Pain with Exercises, Shoes Changes, and More
Plantar fasciitis can be very painful, especially when you are just getting out of bed in the morning.
Exercises can help ease the pain of plantar fasciitis by stretching out the calf muscle.
The exercises for plantar fasciitis are easy and can be done with simple props like a towel or a frozen water bottle or juice can. For easier or more focused stretching, you can try specially made stretching aids as well. And the exercises are not only good for plantar fasciitis, they can also help with other foot problems, such as Achilles tendinitis.
Wearing proper, supportive shoes is also helpful in easing pain. If you are suffering from plantar fasciitis, try not to go barefoot even while you are at home. We recommend wearing shoes with good arch support and a slightly raised heel, which can help to reduce stress on the plantar fascia.
Ibuprofen or other anti-inflammatory drugs can be used for short-term for pain and to help decrease inflammation. However, remember to always consult a physician before taking any medication. Ice packs can help with inflammation as well when placed on the heel for 10 minutes several times a day.
If you are still having pain, see a podiatrist for further treatment.
