Common treatments for Plantar Fasciitis include:
- splinting the foot at night
- anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen or bromelain
- stretching the calf muscles
- icing the arches
- wearing proper arch supports
Acupuncture is very effective at reducing swelling, inflammation and the pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis.
Reflexology is great for addressing any underlying causes of unhealth, but on a more physical level, reflexology helps to stretch and realign the foot, preventing any further damage, and allowing the foot to heal.
If you're suffering from this common form of foot pain, consider seeing an acupuncturist. It'll feel good to get back on your feet!
