Know the cause – identifying the cause will determine the solution. For instance, if you develop plantar fasciitis because of your work, then it is better to modify your workplace to lessen plantar fasciitis or better yet, if possible, look for another job.
Rest – this is necessary to lessen the stress and pressure on the foot. With adequate rest between activities, pain and other accompanying symptoms may significantly be reduced.
Massage therapy – visiting a massage therapist can help you to relax and stimulate blood flow in your foot. This will hasten recovery. Furthermore, massage therapists are good in providing advice on how you can take care of your foot.
Weight loss – since the foot is part of the weight-bearing bones and joints, weight loss can relieve the plantar fascia from undue weight.
Splints – most splints are worn during sleeping. Splints can help in maintaining dorsi-flexion of the foot to avoid pain when you wake up in the morning. The splint can correct abnormal anatomical structure of the foot.
