Treatment options for plantar fasciitis include rest, massage therapy, stretching, motion control running shoes, physical therapy, cold therapy, heat therapy, orthotics, anti-inflammatory medications, injection of corticosteroids and surgery in refractory cases.

A TOP TIP for pain relief is to grab a hard round object, like a golf ball or rolling pin. Place the affected foot onto the object and roll the foot with moderate pressure on the object to act as a massage almost. Many patients of mine have found this to be a fast relieving pain relief.

I hope this Tip Helps!!
