Many of us are unable to participate in our favorite spring activities, such as hiking or pickleball because we suffer from foot problems. Going for a leisurely walk in the springtime sun turns from relaxing to grueling when you’re experiencing discomfort and pain in your feet. Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel and arch pain. It occurs when the connective tissue (plantar fascia) that runs along bottom of foot becomes inflamed. Good news: You don’t have to live with constant foot pain. This daily routine can help, and it’s super simple to boot. You’re ready to feel good? Get ready to feel better!
First, stretch your bed.
Since the fascia tightens while you sleep, the first steps that you take each day are the most painful. What a way to start your day! What’s the fix? Stretch your muscles when you first wake up. Sit at the edge of your bed and place your left ankle over your right. You will feel a slight stretch as you pull the toes on your right foot towards your shin. Repeat 10 times. Then, do the other foot. A randomised controlled trial published in The Journal of Bone and Joint Surgery Daily
