Plantar Fasciitis Relief | SmartSole Exercise Insoles August 03 2015

Plantar fasciitis tends to strike those who overtrain and neglect to stretch their calf muscles
 
Plantar fasciitis can also be caused by flat, high-arched feet and a tight Achilles tendon, excessive pronation, sudden increases in training, wearing old running shoes, running on hard surfaces, or wearing high heels all day before switching into flat running shoes.

Plantar fasciitis sufferers feel a sharp stab or deep ache in the middle of the heel or along the arch. Another sign is the morning hobble from the foot trying to heal itself in a contracted position overnight. Taking that first step causes sudden strain on the bottom of the foot. The pain can recur after long spells of sitting, but it tends to fade during a run, once the area is warmed up.

While it's typical to experience pain in just one foot, massage and stretch both feet. Try these two exercises for plantar fasciitis relief. Do it first thing in the morning and twice more throughout the day.

1. Stand with your bad foot behind your healthy one. Point the toes of the back foot toward the heel of the front foot, and lean into a wall. Bend the front knee and keep the back knee straight, heel firmly planted on the floor. Hold for a count of ten.
 
2. Sit down, and place the bad foot across your knee. Using the hand on your affected side, pull your toes back toward your shin until you feel a stretch in your arch. Run your thumb along your foot--you should feel tension. Hold for a count of ten.
