PLANTAR FASCIITIS AND RELIEVING IT

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common sources of heel pain. Plantar fasciitis is pain on the bottom of one or both heels, caused by irritation to the plantar fascia, which are the dense tissue bands that connect the heels to the toes.

Fasciia pain is usually can be felt on the first step out of bed in the morning.
If worsened, pain can be felt any time while walking, running or jumping.

Plantar fasciitis is probably one of the most annoying staggering injuries one can have. I would know, I suffered with it for a good year. It impacted my whole life, I had to stop running, playing soccer, doing certain workouts and basically impaired my lifestyle in such a disapointing way.

Points to keep in mind:

  1. Stretching your foot 2-3 times a day (up to 5 minutes)
  2. Nutrients to relax tendon – magnesium 500mg/day/vitamin B5 /Fish oil Omega 3 / Vitamin C
  3. anti-inflamatory diet
  4. the right shoes to help stretch tendons (walking bearfoot helps and/or wearing Vibram barefoot shoes)

I wish someone shared this video with me then, but here is it. I hope it helps you if you are suffering from this.
