Re: Any relief for plantar fasciitis?

September 01, 2021 05:59PM
Some things that have worked for me:

- Rolling a golf ball under my foot. I would adjust the pressure depending on my pain tolerance. Any firm ball would work. My daughter used a lacrosse ball for hers.
- Depending on the time of day I would freeze the golf ball first. I’m not a big fan of using ice if I am about to engage in exercise, so if I used a frozen ball I would do it at the end of the day.
- Calf/Achilles stretching is also important.

There are harnesses that can be worn during sleep to stretch out the calf that supposedly help alleviate the dreaded morning pain, but It didn’t work for me.

I found it to be a long road with lots of peaks and valleys. It’s difficult to avoid using your feet. I hope she recovers quickly.
