If you’re reading this post, chances are you’re looking for answers on how to get rid of plantar fasciitis. As someone who has gone through this painful condition, I know how important it is to find relief. Especially if you enjoy being active, it is so disappointing when you get to this point!
Plantar fasciitis is a common condition that affects the bottom of the foot and the heel, causing pain and discomfort. It’s usually caused by overuse or a sudden change in physical activity. For me, it happened after I trained for a half marathon using shoes with less support than I needed. And honestly, I wasn’t stretching as much as I should have. When I started to feel the pain it felt more like a sore muscle in my arch, but after some time I knew it was much worse than that: I had plantar fasciitis.
It’s no fun to realize something’s gone wrong with your body. But fear not, there are things you can do to alleviate your pain.
First things first, it’s important to see a doctor or physical therapist to properly diagnose your condition. What worked for me might not work for you, so make sure you’re getting medical advice specific to your needs. With that said, here’s what I did to get rid of plantar fasciitis.
Overall, these things helped me holistically target my plantar fasciitis. I continue to wear Hokas and Superfeet for running, take my supplements, and do my stretches to stay healthy.
Don’t let plantar fasciitis keep you from doing what you love. With the right treatment and care, you can overcome it!
Remember to consult with a medical professional to determine the best course of action for you, since I’m not a doctor- I’m just sharing what brought me relief!
