As the tissues become weaker, shorter, and tighter they become Mycozil more prone to injury. This becomes a vicious cycle which perpetuates the symptoms such as heel pain.
So how does one regain healthy tissue that is strong and has the capacity to bear the weight of the body? The first step to recovery from plantar fasciitis is to begin to gently stretch the muscles on the bottom of the foot. To stretch the plantar fascia and surrounding structures yourself, try the following:
While lying down or sitting, take your index finger and grab under any of the toes on the affected foot, then, gently extend the toe (bend towards your head), and hold for 15 seconds. Repeat this three times for each individual toe. This will stretch the plantar fascia and also the underlying musculature and provide temporary relief from symptoms.
The next, and most important step, is to visit your local wellness provider. Massage therapists, physical therapists, and many chiropractors have specific techniques designed to break down the scar tissue and adhesions which develop in soft tissue that has been injured or over worked. Once the scar tissue is released, the tissue on the bottom of the foot is much more receptive to stretching and strengthening exercises.
