There’s nothing quite as energizing as going out for a run in the early morning. Or maybe a brisk walk around the park is more your speed. It’s a great form of exercise and can be a refreshing social experience with a friend or a time of quiet solitude just for you before the demands of the day kick in. Either way, if running/walking is a regular part of your healthy lifestyle, then you probably already know the important role healthy feet play in it and the need for effective foot pain relief when something goes awry.
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of foot pain today. Physical activity, like running, can inflame or even cause the condition. The plantar fascia is a ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot, connecting the heel to the ball of the foot and providing a support structure for the all-important arches. Inflammation or damage to the plantar fascia can cause the arches to fail as well as causing excruciating heel pain. The quicker you find relief for this type of foot pain, the better; a flair up of plantar fasciitis can knock you right off your feet for days or weeks at a time.
Of course you can experience foot arch pain without heel pain, often an early sign of failing arches, but the fascia is still critically involved and the same basic remedies for foot pain relief will still apply.
There are three simple but very effective treatments that offer foot pain relief for either condition:
Supportive footwear and orthotic inserts that support the structure of the arches and cradle the heel to help alleviate the pain of plantar fasciitis. We cannot overstate the need for proper arch support when dealing with fallen arches or plantar fasciitis.
Reflexology massage is an excellent treatment for foot pain relief if you are dealing with plantar fasciitis or fallen arches. A professional foot massage will gently stretch the fascia. This ensures that the lymphatic fluids that are built up and trapped in and around the tight tendon can move freely to reduce the inflammation. That way you can get back to your running or walking pain free.
