Recently I have experienced pain in my feet, specifically my heel, from plantar fasciitis. It is an inflammation of a thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes. The inflamed tissue runs across the bottom of the foot. Symptoms include stabbing pain near the heel. Pain might be worst in the morning.
I have been working with my physical therapist to treat my pain. She stretches the affected area, she taught me stretches to do on my own, and she even recommended wearing a shoe with a small heel to help alleviate the pain. So far, stretching and massage has worked best. What has worked for you when you get a flare-up of plantar fasciitis?
