    No no no, surgery!? Yikes, exercise, stretching, and regular massage. Rest and ice are very good though so that was a good mention. Ugh Drs. And their injections and surgery. *palms forehead*

  • says:

    @bellamelissa87 Surgery is very rare

  • says:

    @MrWalterlmt Not in the UK it isn't! But I guess that's due to the NHS!

  • Juan Jose Reyes says:

    when there is a disconfort in your arch you should go and have made some orthotic to stabilized either your pronated foot or your suppination Orthothic will relief the pain,other stuff will help temporaly,is like havin your car,well balance plus tires rotation your feet are the same,try it and forgot abou too many recommendation

  • philb78 says:

    I have seen good success with 'radial shock wave therapy' for the stubborn cases of plantar fasciitis that don't respond to 'plan A', (which is ice & rest acutely, then stretching tight structures & strengthening weaknesses, with or without orthotics) within a maximum of 12 weeks.
    Strongly recommend trying everything else before cortisone or surgery. Cortisone is known to compromise tissue quality, potentially creating a structural weakness.

    Preview image is a middle finger! Lol Good vid..

  • someblokecalleddave1 says:

    I had it 2 years, I sorted it myself with ice after sports and gentle massage before standing up after getting out of bed. Any sign of a re-occurance and I'm back on the massage. Mine was connected to a dodgy bowling action playing cricket causing tautness in the calves, I think you need to look at the causes as well, otherwise it may re-occur?

  • Wesley McCormick says:

    I had plantar faciitis for 6 weeks and as a runner, i was very frustrated at not being able to run. I rested and iced for 6 weeks and it still persisted. Finally i went for a deep muscle massage of my calves and feet and got an insole made with an arch support. To my delight, my pain has almost disappeared overnight.

    @MrWalterlmt Acupuncture is complete bullshit. Quit giving bad advice

  • Tigerpaws9097826 says:

    This is a remarkably thorough description of plantar fasciitis and its treatment for just a one-minute explanation.

  • Silvia Araujo says:

    @MrWalterlmt I'm studying podiatry and surgery is always the last thing we suggest, given that ALL other conservative treatments have failed.

  • Tehui1974 says:

    I used to suffer from this. I forked out and bought orthotics, and although it hasn't completely eliminated the problem, it's about 85% better.

  • says:

    Make sure you stretch your calf muscles several times a day and wear supportive footwear

  • Thrashaero says:

    why is it complete bullshit?

  • 028fire says:

    I suffer from this,have for the past few years.I stretch throughout the day especially in the morning before I get out of bed and at night,even when I run,I stop to stretch out my calves, and I wear a night splint sock thingy that I love and it has helped me from the very first time I wore it. I also get massage/reflexogy twice a month. I also find that when I consume food I am allergic to, like wheat or dairy,my pain tends to get worse about 2-3 days later.

  • omgitsabean15 says:

    I have had plantar fasciitis for a few months. my doctor said its because i have high arches. but after swim practice my foot imprint looks almost flat. but at home when I do the home test with water and paper my arches are high. why do they look different?

  • says:

    Hmmmm….I'm not sure. Get a proper gait analysis done at a runners centre or get a sports injury specialist with an interest in running injuries to have a look.

  • omgitsabean15 says:

    it isnt in america either.

  • MadSeason says:

    I had a calf cramp during jiu jitsu last week and now I have to deal with this, it sucks.

  • Mike D says:

    A "dumb" answer is that your foot was too wet after swimming. It should (obviously) only be damp enough to leave a mark. I'm sorry if this was too simple, and that I insulted your intelligence. I medium-to-high arches myself, have had tennis elbow, and now have plantar fascilitis, so I understand the pain of my joy of running and playing sports. I've had remarkable success with treating my tennis elbow, so I wish you luck.

  • Mike D says:

    I agree, if I buy orthotics, or new running shoes after one year, the problem goes away. I have high arches, and very bony feet, so I need lots of cushion. If I take care of my feet, the pain goes away within a week! Good luck to all! Stretching REALLY helps, too, but only when warmed up, of course.

  • Johnny Appleseed says:

    I've had it over 20 yrs now, just diagnosed this morning, lol !

  • lestat34208 says:

    I think I may have this. I am not sure. The inside of my left foot appears to be swollen. It hurts to walk and feels like my toes would lock up while walking and I am limping is this one or all of the symptoms of this??

  • says:

    They can all be symptoms. The most common ones are pain under the hel which radiates into the arch and is worst first thing in the morning

  • vogeltik says:

    Round bottom shoes are helping me. Day 3 and im walking better with less pain. Im hoping for a full recovery. I've had needles stuck in me- special fitted insoles for my shoes made- taken a truck load of pain pills and a pair of shoes is doing the trick.

  • Betty Cruz says:

    I am relocating to another city and have been moving heavy boxes up & down stairs. I don't exercise so all of this extra movement has been stressful for me. When I woke up yesterday morning I could barely walk. My left foot is very swollen and I can not put pressure on it at all ! Do you think is could be Plantar Fasciitis or maybe a Stress Fracture. Cold compress helps a lot but the pain is pretty unbearable, can you give me some advise please.

  • anurada perera says:

    Nice Video…

  • Stuart Murray says:

    Mine is entirely opposite, it gets worse the more I walk

  • Kevin McDaid says:

    After I play a game that involves me being on my feet and running for some time it starts to hurt but not during the game like for instance this has happened many times I played my game whether it be football basketball whatever. During the game i feel perfectly fine in the car ride home I feel perfectly fine. But once I walk around after I sit down on the car ride my feet kill it's hell
