How to Overcome Plantar Fasciitis
“When you suffer from plantar fasciitis, even the simplest tasks can seem unbearable–and the treatment can often feel as frustrating as the ailment itself. However, treating plantar fasciitis doesn’t have to be a slow and painful process. In most cases, in fact, treatment can be simple, inexpensive, and highly effective.” – Dr. Colin Dombroski
Below are a few excerpts from Dr. Dombroski’s talk on plantar fasciitis. If you’d like to watch the full presentation, you can view it here.
Reduce Your Morning Pain
Taking your first 10 steps with plantar fasciitis can be excruciating. What you do BEFORE taking those steps is critical to you getting better. While you rest, your tissue is trying to heal. Once you take your first step, that healing tissue re-tears, causing pain. Doing a few simple exercises and wearing a comfortable shoe can significantly reduce your pain, as soon as tomorrow morning!
Try To Stay Active
No one wants to stop being active due to pain. Even if you have plantar fasciitis, you don’t need to stop your activity. Just follow with simple rules to stay active.
