People exercise their feet almost every day, which is not easy, and imagine what happens when they additionally squeeze them into badly-fitting shoes: their job gets even tougher. It is not a rare case that this overwhelming contributes to some painful conditions including plantar fasciitis, a chronic swelling of the tendons on the bottom of the foot.

Athletes often suffer from issues like this one because of the extreme strain that they put on their feet when running and jumping. Other people who belong to this high-risk group are basketball players, soccer players, and tennis players, and not to mention dancers.

 

owever, for the irony to get even bigger, people who most frequently get plantar fasciitis are not athletes, but on the contrary, people who are inactive or overweight. Also, this condition, as well as many other of the kind, can be triggered by wearing high heels. When it appears, this condition is accompanied by sharp pain that occurs only when the foot is put under strain. After several weeks or months, the pain becomes even more frequent and begins to occur even when the foot is in a resting position.

Due to this, the person who suffers from this condition feels extremely uncomfortable. Do not forget, if you happen to notice a sharp pain in your heel when you first step on it when getting out of bed, it could be the first sign of plantar fasciitis.

Luckily, plantar fasciitis can be treated and no one has to live with the chronic pain it can induce. This condition can be treated in numerous different ways, including adjustments to a training routine, medications, stretching exercises, and special shoe insoles.

As doctor DeFabio suggests, you should use a massage roller stick for the treatment. These massage roller sticks are easy to find on the market, relatively cheap, and let the patient perform the treatment at home.

Nevertheless, in his practice, Dr. DeFabio applied the ‘Graston Technique’, which involves using a steel instrument to ‘break down scar tissue, adhesions, to lengthen the tissue, and in terms of plantar fasciitis, to create elasticity and to draw blood into the area’. The doctor also uses a lotion that lubricates the skin so the metal instrument glides over it comfortably.

What comes next according to the doctor is reducing the pressure on the tendons. Dr. DeFabio also recommends using a special tape known as ‘Kinesio Tape’. This is a large tape that needs to be wrapped around the heel and that needs to be reaching the toes.

Then, you need to apply a smaller tape and stick it to the large one so that you take even more pressure of the heel.
