What You Need To Know About Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain and is characterized by pain on the bottom of the heel, usually on the inside aspect of the heel and foot. It is usually due to degeneration of the plantar fascia.

Plantar fasciitis is known to cause stabbing pains that can often come and go throughout the day depending on a person’s level of activity.

The pain is usually the worst in the mornings or after sitting for a long period of time. Many refer to the pain as a ‘stone bruise’ because that is exactly what it feels like.

3 Common Causes of Plantar Fasciitis
IMPROPER FOOTWEAR
Shoes that lack proper support, or don’t fit correctly can put excess pressure on ligaments of the foot, including your plantar fascia.
ATYPICAL FOOT ANATOMY
Having high arches, flat feet, or a tight achilles tendon can make you more susceptible to plantar fasciitis.
EXCESS WEIGHT
Strain from excess weight can lead to plantar fasciitis. In addition, adipose fat causes chronic inflammation that damages the plantar fascia.

– IN A LASTING, HOLISTIC WAY.

1. HOT & COLD RELIEF
Alternate hot and cold methods for pain relief. A cold compress can reduce inflammation, while heating pads and warm baths with epsom salt can decrease swelling and alleviate aching muscles. Alternating between hot and cold will provide optimal results.
2. STRETCH & STRENGTHEN
Daily stretches to the feet and calves can improve your range of motion and reduce pain. Stretch and loosen the plantar fascia by rolling a tennis ball along the bottom of your feet. Other exercises like yoga are also beneficial for overall strength, stability, and flexibility.
3. TARGET INFLAMMATION
Reduce chronic inflammation throughout the body with a nutrient-dense diet, and limit your intake of processed foods. Heavily processed foods often contain high levels of sugar and unhealthy fats that contribute to oxidative stress and low-grade inflammation. Natural supplements like Tart Cherry Extract can also bring inflammation levels down.
