Hi pain or soreness in the foot, that eases with time during the day, is generally indicative of plantar fasciitis. The first step you take generally after sitting or standing for a long time or when you get up from the bed is painful. As you start walking the pain clears up. Plantar fascia is a ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes. Other causes of foot pain can be rheumatoid arthritis, faulty arch, ligament tears, fractures, and gout. +wear soft padded footwear. +do stretching of calf muscles +learn strengthening exercise of ankle +take contrast bath at physio clinic. Do reply to discuss detailed treatment plan. Wishing you a good health.

I am taking VAATFREE capsules twice a day for knee and heel pain.
Is VAATFREE a pain killer or steriod?
Vaatfree is a completely herbal preparation which aids in Vaata shaman, thus pain killer action. it does not contain any added steroids, thus is completely harmless.

Stiffness & pain in back & other joints is quite a common condition. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

You seem to have strained your ligaments and muscles of knee joint. 1. Avoid exercises till pain is relieved. Take anti inflammatory drugs like Ibuprofen round the clock for relief. Take it for 4 to 5 days. 2. Apply cold pack on knee 10 mins for 4 times a day. 3. Take calcium supplements and adequate liquids. 4. Start knee exercises once pain is relieved. If problem persists or aggravates consult with your doctor.
