Plantar Fasciitis Walking
We all suffer from foot pain from time to time. Whether it is a direct result of walking around spending hours at an amusement park during the summer or shopping till you drop, it’s not uncommon for your feet to throb and pain when you get home.
But what if your foot pain does not go away in a day or two? What if you’ve developed the most common type of foot injury – plantar fasciitis? And now just walking or putting weight on your feet, feels like someone is stabbing the bottom of your feet with a knife. Should you be concerned?
The truth be told, you should be worried. Especially if your foot pain has not gone away after 48 hours, you’ve tried plantar fasciitis stretches and simply walking now causes great discomfort and pain anywhere from your heel to the base of your toes.
It’s not uncommon to suffer from plantar fasciitis just from walking around day in and day out. There can be many reasons why you have developed a plantar fasciitis injury. Some common causes of plantar fasciitis can include: being overweight, standing on hard surfaces for extended periods of time – in one place, wearing improper shoes for the surface that you walk, run or stand on day in and day out, or already existing muscle imbalances anywhere from your achilles tendon all the way up your leg to your hamstrings and buttocks.
Many plantar fasciitis sufferers not only find the foot pain unbearable but also the accompanying swelling, inflammation and foot throbbing. There are 4 simple techniques that can help decrease your pain, swelling and inflammation – even better, it’s plantar fasciitis home treatment. These techniques are called the R.I.C.E. principles. Let’s learn exactly how you can implement these techniques right now.
R stands for Rest. As with any kind of injury, especially a repetitive strain injury such as plantar fasciitis, if possible give your feet a most needed rest in order to reduce the swelling and inflammation.
I stands for ICE. Applying ice directly to your injured foot will immediately decrease the degree of swelling due to a process known as vasoconstriction. This occurs due to the sudden drop in temperature of the fascia and constrction of blood vessels.
C stands for COMPRESSION. Simply wrap your foot in an elastic bandage or elastic support. The compress will provide support for your injured plantar fascia. The compress will also provide temporary pain relief.
Last but no least E stands for ELEVATE. Elevating your injured foot will reduce the rush of blood into the foot fascia. This will in turn prevent any swelling or inflammation that is present as you go through the healing process.
The RICE principles are always the method of choice when dealing with repetitive strain injuries, especially when you’ve first incurred an injury. I recommend you implement these 4 simple steps to help decrease your plantar fasciitis pain from walking.
Now as someone who knows the real how stubborn and nagging plantar fasciitis can be. I don’t want you to make the same mistakes that I did when trying to cure your plantar fasciitis once and for all. I wasted not only years sitting at home and on the sidelines because of plantar fasciitis but I wasted hundreds of dollars of my hard earned cash on doctors, podiatrists, custom orthotic shoes and inserts and even cortisone shots. But all they did was take away my money and not my pain.
It wasn’t until I learned 5 simple, easy-to-follow techniques that you can do from the comfort of your own home, sitting in your comfy chair watching your favourite TV show – without the need for any medical gadgets or gimmicks.
