Who has plantar fasciitis? There are a few ways to alleviate the pain so that you can continue with your daily life. There is nothing that can really take all pain away, maybe surgery. But once you have this condition, it is for life.
Trust me, I am on my feet so much (I am a nurse) and there have been times that the pain in my feet are so bad that I can hardly walk. But I still manage to go on. There are exercises to do that help somewhat with pain and extends the period before the pain sets in.
Freeze a bottle with water and roll them with your feet, paying close attention to the arches. Or you can use a tennis ball. Arch inner sole in shoes can help you be on your feet a little longer before the pain is too much to handle.And then I found these awesome inventions – Arch elastics. They are tight and fit over your foot. It pulls your arch upwards and it acts like a support.
Massaging the arches and calves also helps a lot. Just use some ointment for muscle spasms or muscle pain.
Another thing I have had to do, and that is only wear sport shoes with inner supports – asics gell soles. Rather have an expensive pair of shoes so that you can minimize your pain levels. And stay away from flat shoes, they are usually the cheap ones that you can buy anywhere. If it not an option to buy shoes that have supports, then you can use the inner arch support soles- Green Cross is my recommendation. Or you can go the arch elastic route.Lastly, anti-inflammatory medication will really do a great job, especially at night when you are in bed.
Hopefully I have helped someone who has been experiencing this condition.
