3 Tips For Plantar Fasciitis Relief
Plantar Fasciitis is the inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot connecting your heel bone and toes. It commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. Approximately 2 million Americans experience Plantar Fasciitis making it one of the most common forms of foot pain. If left untreated, it can turn into a chronic condition and impact your legs and back. Here are three ways you can find relief from Plantar Fasciitis.
Support Your Arches
A leading cause for Plantar Fasciitis is poor arch support. Adding supportive insoles to your shoes or wearing supportive bands around your arches can help relieve pain.
Massaging and Stretching Your Arches
Plantar Fasciitis is the result of stiff tissue running along the bottom of your foot. Massing and stretching out that band can help relieve tension when you walk. Physical therapists often recommend rolling a ball beneath your foot to relieve pain.
Sleep in a Night Sock or Split
Medical experts often recommend wearing a product that stretches your calf and arch while you sleep. At Copper Compression we offer a Night Sock and a Night Splint that hold the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon in a lengthened position to stretch those muscles.
