Heel spur, calcaneal spur and plantar fasciitis are often caused by short muscles, especially in the lower legs and foot sole. Therefore, it is important to make these flexible and longer again. These short muscles cause a constant strain on the plantar fascia, and this must be avoided. Stretching is very important then.
Several stretching exercises are advised to treat the heel spur. The most advised ones are listed here. It is not necessary to do all of these, as some exercises have a similar effect. Just experiment to find out which one fits you best. Make sure to find a good balance, stretching all muscles involved. Make sure not to exaggerate, stretching too hard can damage muscles and tendons.
Make sure to perform these stretches a few times a day. A general guideline would be 3 to 4 sessions each day. Then try to perform 3 to 4 exercises, repeating each exercise 2 -3 times with 10-15 repetitions.
￼exercise 1: stretching the plantar fascia and the calves: stand on a stair step or a bench with your toes, with the foot sole horizontal. Lower the heel until you feel a stretch. Maintain a few seconds and go up again. Repeat this a few times.
Note that this exercise is also good for strength in the calve muscles. Especially when you go upwards again, proceed to stand on your toes.
￼exercise 2: stretching the plantar fascia and the calves: sit down on the floor or your bed with your legs stretched out in front of you. With a towel around your toes, pull them towards you until you feel a stretch.
￼exercise 3: stretching the plantar fascia. This is a very effective exercise. This exercise is explained for a heel spur on the right foot: sit down on a chair, cross the right leg over the left one. Then grab the toes of the right foot with your left hand and pull your toes towards you. You will actually see the fascia protrude in the foot and of course experience the stretch.
￼exercise 4: stretching the calf muscles: lean forwards against a wall or a pole. Leave one leg stretched behind you and place the other one bent under you. Then lean further forward until you feel a stretch in the behind the leg.
￼exercise 5: again lean against a wall, placing both feet behind each other. Then slowly squat down, bending both legs. You will feel a stretch deep in the calf of the behind leg, the so-called" soleus.
With all these exercises, be aware to be aware of how hard you stretch. If you stretch too excessively, you might even do further harm. Just listen to your body, nothing should hurt.
Exercises for foot strength-
Next, to the stretching exercises, it can also pay to strengthen your legs. Training the muscles in feet and legs (especially the calf) can support healing from heel spurs and plantar fasciitis. Even runners or cyclists do not necessarily have strong legs. They may only be strong in a one-sided direction. Performing these exercises may strengthen the muscles then.
A much-advised training for the feet is to lay out a towel in front of you on the floor and to try and roll it up using your toes. When this goes well you can even put small weights on the towel to make it a bit harder. Similarly, you can also try to pick up small objects with your toes. Both are useful exercises, without any risk of hurting the heel.
A nice exercise that stimulates the tissue of the fasciitis is to roll a golf ball under your foot. Do this for 1-2 minutes and repeat this a few times per day. You can easily do this at work, simply sitting at your desk. This specific exercise is often found helpful.
Next to these exercises, strengthening the upper legs may be useful. Several exercises are possible, like standing on one leg, lowering yourself by bending the knee and standing up again.
When in doubt it is always a good idea to consult a physiotherapist before doing these exercises. Some gyms even have one on-site.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, also known as PID, is characterized by an infection that occurs in a lady's reproductive organs. Usually this occurs as a result of a complications arising from a STD. The disease causes severe damage to the ovaries, fallopian tubes and the uterus. It is one of the bigger causes of infertility in women.
The cervix which is the entry to the uterus has the function of stopping bacteria that are present in the vagina from spreading to the other organs. Once infected by a STD, the cervix can no longer perform its function of preventing the bacteria from spreading to other organs. PID develops when the infection spreads from the cervix to the upper areas of the genital tract.
There are certain factors which increase the chances of being affected by PID:
- Being sexually active
- Already affected by STDs such as gonorrhea
- Past history of PID
- Having multiple sexual partners
Women may experience pain while urinating and engaging in sexual intercourse, coupled with sore feeling in the stomach along with nausea. Abnormal vaginal discharge and a rise in body temperature are common symptoms as well.
Once the disease has been diagnosed by a doctor, a treatment plan is devised. The treatment options that you can avail of are:
- Medications: If the symptoms are mild, then the doctor will prescribe antibiotic medications. Usually the antibiotics are administered by mouth unless the symptoms are severe, when the drugs are administered intravenously. Your partner would also require medications if you happen to be diagnosed with PID, so that he/she does not catch it.
- Surgery: Surgery is recommended by the doctor in case of tissue inflammation and the presence of pus (abscess). The aim of surgery is to get rid of the abscess to prevent any further infection.
In addition to the treatment methods, there are certain precautionary measures that you can adopt to be safe:
- Have protected sex.
- Try and stick to one sexual partner.
- Visit your gynecologist for regular checkups.
The first fruit that comes to mind when you want to indulge in during summer would be watermelon. While it is refreshing and hydrating true to its name, there are also other benefits that it has.
1. Body Hydration - The most important benefit of this red, juicy fruit is water, which is as high as 92%. It is no surprise that you feel hydrated as soon as you start biting into a slice of watermelon. In patients who need to be hydrated, this could work wonders.
2. Reduces body fat - Watermelons contain an amino acid called Citrulline which converts to arginine. This conversion blocks the creation of fat from fat cells, thereby reducing fat accumulation in the body.
3. Digestion - The high fiber content in watermelon, supplemented by the high water content, aids in smooth digestion and clear constipation.
4. Heart Benefits - Watermelon contains lycopene, which dilates the blood vessels and allows for smoother flow of blood. The lycopene is proven to protect against various heart ailments. Tests done to check blood pressure at various spots including ankle and carotid regions showed significant decline in blood pressure. These also improve blood flow in the arteries.
5. Musculoskeletal benefits - The benefits to the bones and muscles is multifold. After a workout session, athletes recover faster by eating watermelon.
The reasons are many:
-The potassium-rich watermelon helps muscles function better
-The amino acid Citrulline is believed to reduce muscle soreness and inflammation
-Choline in the watermelon helps in better muscular movement and reduce inflammation
6. Skin - The Vitamin A in the watermelon generates production of hair and skin follicles, production of sebum, and moisturizing the hair follicles. This also promotes better condition of supporting tissues like hair, teeth, soft tissues and mucous membranes. Watermelon also contains Vitamin C, very essential for building and maintaining collagen. Collagen is what provides structure to the hair and skin. Add some watermelon if you have wounds, and see how wound healing is improved with better collagen formation. Needless to say, the high moisture content also adds to improved look of hair and skin.
7. Cancer Prevention - Watermelon, especially a nicely ripened fruit, contains a lot of carotenoids, flavonoids, and triterpenoids. These are proven anti-cancer chemicals and reduce the formation of free radicals in the body which are responsible for cancer.
8. Vision - The bright red colour of watermelon is from beta carotene. If this name rings a bell, yes, you have heard it associated with carrots, which are very good for eye health. Watermelon also is a rich source and beta-carotene helps in the production of pigments in the eye. It can also prevent against macular degeneration and night blindness.
So, the next time you bite into a watermelon, think about all the good things you are treating your body.
Homeopathy is a widely accepted alternative system of medicine which was discovered in the late 18th century. Homeopathy believes in the philosophy that the mind, emotions and the body are integrated together. On the basis of this philosophy, a homeopath provides remedies which can suit best to the physical and psychological conditions of a patient. Homeopathic remedies are certainly not a very high dose. Its main purpose is to recognise and discard the cause behind the condition.
1. Homeopathic remedies work slowly: Many people believe that homeopathic remedies cure your medical condition very slowly. Fact is that it works very fast on diseases like cold, fever, etc. When the symptoms are chronic then the only working process is slow. This is because at the chronic condition the body takes little time to cure from inside. It is advisable to start the homeopathic remedies as soon as any symptom is seen.
2. Remedies are prescribed by doctors with no formal training: Many people believe that homeopathic remedies are prescribed simply on the basis of the visible symptoms and no diagnosis is done. Fact is that these remedies are prescribed by qualified medical professionals graduated from homeopathy medical colleges. They diagnose your medical condition before prescribing you any remedy.
3. Homeopathic remedies are not scientific: Many people consider homeopathic remedies to be unscientific. However, the bases behind homeopathy are pharmacological and clinical data. Vast studies and researches have been conducted on homeopathic remedies and treatment.
4. Strict dietary restriction is to be followed at the time of homeopathic treatment: Many people believe that they have to control their eating habits while undergoing homeopathic treatment. Fact is that for some patients, ingredients like garlic, onion, alcohol, coffee, tobacco etc. are to be avoided during the tenure of treatment. This is simply because these ingredients interfere with the homeopathic treatment.
5. Homeopathy can cure any disorder: Some people have a strong believe that homeopathic remedies can cure any disorder or any medical condition. Fact is that this remedy is completely ineffective in case of dental issues or any condition where surgery is the only remedy.
