Plantar Fasciitis || Common Cause of Heel Pain September 07 2015
Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. It is pain and inflammation of thick tissue, called the plantar fascia. The fascia spans the bottom of the foot and connects your toes to your heel bone.
The pain most often occurs first thing in the morning after getting out of bed and includes stabbing pain that normally lessens after normal daily activity. It is most common in runners or overweight people. Pain relievers, physical therapy, night splints or orthotics may help improve plantar fasciitis.
Contrast therapy is highly recommended by doctors to offer relief to plantar fasciitis patients. This therapy includes alternating hot and cold baths. The best product to achieve this therapy in an efficient and cost effective way is the AnkleAid. The product is inexpensive and the perfect size to be able to utilize two AnkleAid’s in a small space.
