Discussion: Plantar Fasciitis

There is no one cure for plantar fasciitis. The first thing you need is an insert in your shoes to hold your arch. There are generic ones in the market but the best is go to a foot doctor and have a custom made arch suppot made. Then all the above exercises help along with time. Good luck this is a very painful condition.

First off there is no one cure for this. One of the best things to do is go to a foot doctor and have a custom orthonics made to lift up your arch. What has happened is your arches have dropped and inflamed the heal where the tendon is attached. Even with these it will take a while to heal. Some things you can do to prevent a recurrance is always wear the custom orthonics. Wear good tennis shoes and get new ones when they start to wear out. Don't wear sandals, hard sole shoes or go barefoot. Do streching exercises by sitting in a chair and grabbing your toes and streching them back toward your ankle and hold for 30 seconds. Also stand on the balls of your foot on a stairs and hold for 30 seconds. Gettting shots and sugery are last resorts and should be done only if all else fails.
