Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is a condition where a deep ache forms in the heel, and accounts for roughly 80% of all heel pain complaints!

Not only can this leave you desperate to get off your feet, but if it becomes a chronic issue, your quality of life can quickly plummet.

If you have tight calf muscles, struggle with obesity, have flat feet or high arches, or stand for long hours at a time, you’re much more likely to develop this condition, but there are ways to ease the pain when flare-ups occur.

– Rest and ice your foot
– Take OTC pain medication
– Wear supportive shoes and consider getting orthotics
– Stretch your calves and feet
