I have plantar fasciitis and when I was furloughed and not having to walk all over the store helped. But I also switched to alternating the shoes I wear every day and wearing supportive shoes. As well as doing the exercises and I don't do ice as much as I should. and I got a insert from the drugstore to help.
Heat seems to help.
I also try to remember to curl my toes or do other stretches during the day. I had a really bad flare up but then it seems to have calmed down again.
Oh and I have compression socks and some compression foot sleeves. I have a whole rotation system for the shoes and the compression socks of when I wear them and which shoes.
Guess who has plantar fasciitis? My feet hurt, this sucks.
I was able to deal with mine with shoe inserts. I hope yours is as quickly fixed.
I did the stretches faithfully, and it eventually worked. Sucked at the time, but it did clear up.
Mine too. The big factor in mine is always wearing some kind of supportive shoe in the house. No barefoot.
No barefoot ever!! (According to my podiatrist.)
Yeah, I was directed to wear Berks or similar around the house and that all my shoes needed inserts at the very least. Cleared up my knee issues pretty quickly (my caps were sliding slightly outward, and it caused a lot of pain).
Yeah, I don't have problems with my feet, but if I walk barefoot in the house my knees punish me. Also, in the future I will never have tile floors again. They are brutal compared to wood.
I've found that, in addition to exercises, etc., massaging my feet helps - I use my thumbs to press on the bottom of my foot under the arch, rubbing along that muscle. It seems to help it loosen up a bit.
Brendon is more brutal with his, actually pounding the heel, which he claims helps.
I'm still sore, but turns out I am one of the people who can sleep through the night with the splint on, and I'm back to being able to put weight on it when I get out of bed in the morning.
