How to treat Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is a condition of the foot which occurs when the ligament running along the bottom of the foot is twisted or stretched into an uncomfortable position. It can be very painful in some cases, and cause the sufferer to struggle with walking or moving around. There is very little a doctor can do about the condition in most cases, although about 5 in every 100 people suffering from it will need surgery. In most cases there are things you can do at home to ease the problem.

  • Rest your feet. Try to stay off your feet as much as possible to give your foot a chance to heal. The more pressure you put on your foot, the longer the condition will take to heal, meaning that if you don’t rest you could be suffering for a lot longer.
  • Try stretches. Stretches will help the twisted or stretched ligament to move back to a comfortable position of its own accord, and will make the pain lessen for you. Stretch both your toes and calves throughout the day, at random intervals, but stop stretching if you feel more pain or that the sensation is actually getting worse.
  • Use ice. Ice will help to bring down any swelling or inflammation, and works as a wonderful natural way to relieve pain. With Plantar Fasciitis you should avoid using heat on the ligament as it can actually cause inflammation and make the pain worse.
  • Try a walking cast. Obviously it is not easy to stay off of your feet at all times, so see if you can find a walking cast, which holds your foot in place and can help you to stay active whilst you are suffering from the condition.
