Top 10 Plantar Fasciitis Treatments

Plantar fasciitis is known as a common cause of painful sensation in the foot’s bottom and heel. This thick band of tissues, which connects the toes and the heel bone, could become inflamed, injured, stretched, or torn. As a result, you might feel painful to walk or put pressure on affected feet. The level of intensity can range from mild to severe. Fortunately, there are many simple ways to alleviate the pain and deal with its symptoms. Here are the top 10 plantar fasciitis treatments.


A simple yet effective way to alleviate the pain caused by plantar fasciitis is to limit the activity of your feet and rest. This means you should stay off of extended walking, standing, or jogging to reduce the amount of pressure on the heel. When you are at work or home, try to seat and just walk in necessary cases. Consider using a pair of crutches for several days as well until the inflammation cools down. Also, avoid running or doing exercises on hard surfaces such as concrete. Instead, go for all-weather rubber or grass tracks if possible. [1]
