Tips for Dealing with Plantar Fasciitis
One of the most prevalent injuries sustained by distance runners, and one of the most painful and disabling, is plantar fasciitis. The following video provides a few suggestions that can assist you in coping with the pain caused by plantar fasciitis.
Use ice since the cold temperature will help relieve any discomfort.
A cold compress on your foot for approximately twenty minutes, three or four times daily should help.
If you are overweight or obese, decreasing weight can help reduce the strain and stress placed on your feet, which can alleviate the pain associated with plantar fasciitis.
Wearing the appropriate shoes is vital for people who suffer from plantar fasciitis since their feet require maximum support. When the shock-absorbing properties of the plantar fascia weaken, it is necessary to wear shoes that provide enough arch support.
Giving your feet a massage should make you feel good and help relieve any pain you may be experiencing. Beginning with a lighter touch, gradually increase the pressure your hands apply or the things you are using when the discomfort decreases.
There are instances when plantar fasciitis will improve with self-help tactics and other situations when it will not. If you have tried everything, including over-the-counter pain relievers, and still are not finding any relief, you should contact a qualified medical expert.
