What is Plantar Faciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis (Runner’s Heel), is characterized by a sharp, tight pain in the heel and arch of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation in the bottom of the foot.
Overtraining, overuse – repetitive stress or impact and sudden increases in running mileage or intensity. Improper or worn-out footwear can cause pain in your heel, but the root of the problem lies in tight and weakened muscles in the foot. The more you continue to run and train with this injury, the tighter and weaker the muscles in your foot will become, causing inflammation of the foot and sharp pain. The pain may subside for a day or two and return worse than ever if you do not give it time to heal.
Short term, you will need to reduce your training load. The next step is to reduce the inflammation and pain though cooling theraphy. Apply Physicool’s cooling bandage for 30 minutes to 1 hour, 2-4 times per day. Physicool draws heat out through Rapid Evaporation Technology.
Long term, stretching combined with strengthening the muscles in and around the feet and calves will address the root of the problem and help offset a recurrence.
Physicool will help speed up healing and get you back to what you love doing faster!
