A massage therapist who specializes in trigger point therapy can be of great help.

Home remedies for plantar fasciitis:

  • Beggin with massaging the sole of the foot. Then take out the frozen golf or tennis ball. Roll it along the sole of your foot. If the area in pain is larger roll your foot along the frozen tin can, back and forth. This will help reduce inflammation and speed up recovery.

  • To strenghten the muscles in the area put small objects- pens or pencils- on the floor and pick them up with your toes. Strengthening this muscles will help keep the fasciitis from recurring.

  • Bending your toes back to the point where you feel a stretch, pull up on your toes, grab just the toes, not the ball of the foot, pull it up towards your shin and towards your knee. Using the other hand, feel the mid arch of the foot. Count to 10 then let go of the stretch. Repeat this 10 times an perform it at least three times a day. This will help keep your feet from tightening.
