Treatment Of Plantar Fasciitis

by Dr. Jason Barker February 03, 2017

Symptoms Of Plantar Fasciitis

  • Foot arch pain
  • Pain in ball of foot
  • Pain in heel
  • Stiffness and pain upon standing in the morning
  • Pain goes away when the area is warmed up
  • The fascia, which is tough fibrous tissue, becomes inflamed and swollen. If not treated the tissue will become weakened over time.

Treatment Of Plantar Fasciitis

Getting rid of foot arch pain, pain in ball of foot, pain in heel, and in plantar fasciitis takes some time, rest and anti-inflammatory treatment. It will go away if you rest your foot (not running) and diligently follow these recommendations!

  • Plantar fasciitis deserves rest. That means take a break from running. Don’t try to run through the pain, it will make an acute injury chronic. The time you spend resting now, won’t come close to the time you’ll miss if you keep running on it and it becomes chronic.
  • Ligament Restore contains all the nutrients your connective tissues (plantar fascia being one of them..) need to maintain strength and integrity.
  • Control the inflammation using  Systemic Enzyme Complex or  Wobenzym; both are enzymes that short-circuit inflammation and pain.
  • Anti-inflammatory Formula is just that, a great combination of the strongest natural anti-inflammatories.
  • Take a look at your shoes. Severely worn out shoes won’t help with foot arch pain.
  • Make sure you stay hydrated. The plantar fascia, along with other connective tissues in the body has a poor blood supply. (This is what makes them more prone to injury.) Staying hydrated will help keep the tissue more flexible.
  • Ice is good for it initially. Get a small-ish plastic water bottle and freeze it. Then roll the arch of your foot over it, giving the fascia a gentle ice massage.
  • Fish oil is a great anti-inflammatory because it's packed with Omega-3 oils that prevent inflammation from occurring in the body; they work as well as NSAIDs without the side effects, after some time.
  • T-Relief is a great topical cream for when your plantar fascia is really flared up, after stretching or walking.
