Plantar Fasciitis is a horrible condition that millions of individuals battle on a daily basis. Not only is trying to deal with the chronic foot pain like a full time job, but the condition can be mentally taxing as well.
This is especially true if you are required to spend the better part of eight hours on your feet, five days a week or more.
...there are a variety of natural, yet effective treatments that you can partake in to relieve your pain.
Let's get started.
How to Cure Plantar Fasciitis in 1 Week
Secret 01. Deep Tissue Massage on problematic area
A deep tissue massage is without a doubt one of your best all-natural treatments when it comes to dealing with this chronic foot pain. You can go to a professional masseuse, who will be more expensive or you can try this little in-home technique.
You don’t necessarily have to use a rolling pen like in the picture above, a baseball or tennis ball will serve the same purpose.
What you want to do is, lay the rolling pen or ball on the floor, place your foot on top of it, and apply minimal pressure, while rolling your foot back and forth at the same time.
The main goal of this process is to stretch out the fascia tendon. This helps because when you suffer from plantar fasciitis the fascia tendon becomes extremely tight.
Proper stretching and massaging will loosen it up. You should aim for performing little tissue massage at least two to three times a day at around two to five minutes intervals per sessions.
Secret 02. Deep Stretch
Deep stretching is another excellent method when it comes to loosening up that fascia tendon.
What you need to do is find a cement block or a set of stairs and place your foot up against them in the same manner as in the photo above.
Once you are in that position you kind of just want to lean against the stairs or block and really stretch out that area of the foot.
Performing this several times a day in a few minute intervals should be enough to ease some of that chronic pain.
Secret 03. Eat the right Nutrients
Sure, stretching and massaging will work great, but if you want a complete routine that will keep your pain at bay, you need to consume nutrients that were specifically designed to relax tendons.
The first nutrient that you want to look for is magnesium. A dose of 500 milligrams right before bedtime should be sufficient to keep the pain at bay, as this will greatly relax the fascia tendon.
Vitamin B5, fish oils, and anything with Omega-3 fatty acids are essential when it comes to relaxing and repairing that fascia tendon.
Simply include these supplements in your daily diet! It will go a long way to helping your chronic foot pain.
Secret 04. Strengthen the Muscles in your Feet
The best way to do this is to spend a few minutes a day walking barefoot. If this is too much for you at first, ease your way into it by using barefoot shoes.
