These plantar fasciitis foot pain treatments should help relieve pain. Plantar fasciitis is basically an inflammation of the fascia on the bottom of the foot. It can lead to foot pain and make it hard to walk.

First you want to loosen up the joints in the foot. Your foot has about 30 joints, so you want to make sure all of them are moving well, and loosened up, especially the tarsal and metatarsal joints.

Next, using a ball such as a lacrosse ball, tennis ball, or racquet ball does a great job of stretching the big toe, or first ray. It also helps stretch the plantar fascia underneath the foot as well.

The third treatment is using compression socks, like the ones provided by Eversport. Compression socks can help you be active again by providing support for your aching feet. Their compression helps relieve pain and discomfort without cutting off circulation. They are comfortable to wear and are slim enough that you can wear your regular socks over them without it feeling bulky.

Then focusing on a correct gait pattern is very important. When we walk naturally, we hit our heel first, then roll onto our toes and push off. If our feet hurt, we often don’t do this, and it can cause many other problems in the knee and hips.

The last treatment is a plantar fascia soft tissue mobilization (STM). This will help work out the scar tissue and adhesions on the fascia. Often you can feel little bumps or knots along the fascia, and you want to mobilize that area to help reduce the pain and irritation.
