How To Get Rid Of Plantar Fasciitis teaches you all the techniques that I use to naturally get rid of plantar fasciitis.
If you’ve been following NuVision Excel for a while, you might know of my love for running. Long-distance running is one of my passions, especially at this beautiful time of year. But I recently developed plantar fasciitis, which has made going for long runs difficult and painful. The treatment of plantar fasciitis is almost always the same: orthotics and cortisone shots in the foot. Well, I’m here to tell you that I’ve gotten rid of my plantar fasciitis naturally and I want to show ou how you can get rid of plantar fasciitis as well.
It’s best to take care of plantar fasciitis as soon as symptoms appear, as ignoring it can actually cause other health difficulties in the future. One of best things you can do to get rid of plantar fasciitis is deep tissue massage. The treatment for this is super-cost effective, all you need is a tennis or golf ball! You simply need to roll your foot across the ball, using pressure to relieve the deep seated fiscia. If you are looking for a little something extra to add to your deep tissue massage, freeze a bottle of water and use that to massage your feet.
Although stretching can help get rid of plantar fasciitis, you need to know how to do it properly. Just stretching the plantar fascia won’t give you the relief you’re looking for. You want to make sure that you are stretching the calf and the anterior aspect of the front of your leg. By loosening up the lower aspect of the leg, a great deal of pressure will be taken off the plantar fascia.
Supplements can also help relieve the symptoms or get rid of plantar fasciitis. If you have a magnesium deficiency, you’re going to be far more prone to issues like plantar fasciitis. Work more bananas into your diet to give your fascia some relief. Fish oil is also an essential supplement. It acts as an anti-inflammatory and also can help heal the areas around the fascia.
By integrating these tips into your life, you should find a great deal of relief from this painful condition. It only takes a few minutes a day. Remember, this isn’t just a maintenance treatment, this can help you get rid of plantar fasciitis for good!

In this video, we are talking about how to get rid of plantar fasciitis. You know, it is running season and I’ve been running a lot and I got plantar fasciitis in my right foot and that’s why I’m teaching you about it right now because I’m teaching you what I do about it.
Now, I’ve had so many people who come to me and they have plantar fasciitis and they’ve gotten all these different types of therapy and they’ve gotten custom orthotics and they’ve done it all and at the end of the day, they still have plantar fasciitis. I’m able to help them with some very simple techniques.
Now, plantar fasciitis can actually cause a lot of problems in your body if you leave it and don’t actually get it fixed. The reason for that is because, what we have in our foot is the plantar vault. We have the medial longitudinal arch, the lateral longitudinal arch, and the anterior transverse arch. Those three arches make up the plantar vault. That plantar vault is designed to actually absorb and take the shock from every step you take. When you have plantar fasciitis, this red line right here is showing us where the plantar fascia is. When you have plantar fasciitis, it makes your foot not function right and your foot doesn’t take the shock as it should and what it can do is, it can actually travel up the kinetic chain, meaning, it travels up to the ankle, to the knee, to the hip, to the low back and beyond and starts to cause a lot of issues. So, plantar fasciitis should not just go left unchecked. It’s something that you really want to take care of if you start to have it.
So, what I’m going to do is teach you some of the different techniques that I use in order to help with plantar fasciitis because if you’re not taking care of it, it’s going to cause more problems than just foot pain. I want to tell you, too, if you have plantar fasciitis, you know, not only is it just foot pain altogether. You know, sometimes it can be in the heel, sometimes it can, you know, travel more towards the fore foot, sometimes it can be more in the medial part of the foot. It can really be all over. There’s not any particular area, but I will say usually in the morning when you take those first couple steps out of bed, it feels like you’re walking on shards of glass. So, if you are one of those people who are suffering with plantar fasciitis, you want to pay attention to this because it hurts. Now, let’s go ahead and talk about it.
So, first is deep tissue massage. Now, you’re probably thinking go to a massage therapist, but that’s not the case. You can actually go ahead and do this at home. So what you can do is, take a tennis ball or even a golf ball, put it on the floor, and roll your foot on it. Now, most people recommend a tennis ball because they say a golf ball is too hard, but I personally use both. I need to get deep into that fascia in order to actually help it release, especially because I run a lot. So, a deep tissue massage is going to be really good for that. Now, the other thing you can do is even use a rolling pin if you don’t have a tennis ball or a golf ball in your house. Then lastly, one of the things that works very well, too is to actually freeze a water bottle. You freeze the water bottle and then roll your foot on that as well. Then what happens is, not only do you get the benefit of actually kind of rolling those muscles out, but you also get the benefit of the ice, which is going to help with inflammation in that plantar fascia which is very irritated at this point. So, that’s it for deep tissue massage.
Next is stretching. A lot of people – when it comes to stretching with plantar fasciitis – do it wrong because what they do is they focus on stretching the plantar fascia. In reality, what you need to do is stretch in some different areas. You want to make sure you’re stretching the calf, you want to make sure you’re stretching the Achilles tendon, and you also want to make sure that you’re stretching the anterior compartment and the anterior muscles in the front of your leg there. So, what happens is, when you stretch both the posterior aspect and the anterior aspect of your leg, what you’ll find is that it’s going to bring a lot of relief to the plantar fascia.
For instance, every step you take, if your calf muscles are tight, essentially what it’s going to do is put a lot more strain on the plantar fascia. So, if we actually loosen up that whole lower aspect of the leg and all the muscles in it, then what we’re gonna find is that the plantar fascia will also release as well.
Now, the next thing that we’re going to use is magnesium in order to help release and relieve that plantar fasciitis. The reason for magnesium being very important is because magnesium is very calming to muscles that are very tight and fascia that is very tight. So, if you have a magnesium deficiency, you’re gonna actually even be more prone to issues like plantar fasciitis. So, if you have plantar fasciitis, be sure to supplement with some magnesium, eat some bananas, make sure you’re getting a lot of magnesium in your diet to help give that fascia some relief.
Now last, if not least, fish oil. Fish oil acts as not only an anti-inflammatory, but it also helps heal that area. So, if you’re suffering from plantar fasciitis, use some fish oil and some magnesium and you’re gonna get some good relief with that.
So, be sure to implement this into your life if you have plantar fasciitis. It’s gonna be very important and it’s very simple. You can do it in a couple minutes and it’s going to get you incredible results.
