How Can I Get Rid Of Plantar Fasciitis?

The management of plantar fasciitis requires treatment of what contributed to its development in the first place. Reducing these may be necessary if there was a recent increase in physical activity or standing time. From an exercise perspective, this may mean less time spent doing weight-bearing tasks, and if it is work-related, then breaking up periods of standing with intermittent sitting can be worthwhile. If limited ankle movement contributes to your symptoms, stretches can be effective, particularly for the calf and foot muscles. Beyond these strategies, there is good evidence for hands-on, soft tissue treatment of the plantar fascia and surrounding structures, taping the foot, and prescribing orthoses. Strength and movement training exercises can also be effective.
