Quick relief for painful Plantar Fasciitis

Posted on August 10th, 2012 by Shari´ Parks

It’s reported that more than 10% of the US population will suffer from plantar fasciitis in a lifetime. I can attest to that statistic. While training for a 2011 half marathon I developed the condition. Plantar fasciitis is a painful inflammation of the plantar fascia, connective tissue, on the soles of the feet.

After seeing a podiatrist, I was advised to do all the things I knew I should. One was to change my running shoes. Another was to not walk around my house bare foot; which only exacerbates the inflammation. One home treatment that I wasn’t aware of was the tennis ball trick.

What you do is role the tennis ball on the sole of your foot from the heel to the base of the toes. This along with ice therapy really helped me. Oh, and I’m completely fine now. No more pain since this home care approach. Try it out!
