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 you 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’re 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!
