Heel Pain Questions

Plantar fasciitis I have been suffering from plantar fasciitis for 2+ years now. Do corns and callouses commonly occur for people with plantar fasciitis? Burning pain on the side of the feet above the arch - is this normal? Can massage help with this? What type of physiotherapy is suggested for plantar fasciitis? How to manage the pain on a longer run?

Respected lybrate-user" inflammation of plantar fascia" is called plantar fascitis" plantar--- plantar fascia+ itis --- inflammation" during this problem. Massage / soft tissue manipulation will helpful to this at limited times only / for emergencies. Compulsorily starts physiotherapy treatment for orthopaedic doctor consultation. Type of treatment is designed / decided by physical therapist. For online consultation it's not possible. Only patterns / types of easy ways to be explained. But this is under emergency maintenance/ situations. If problem is longer. Surgery is the only option. But it's depends on your own decision or interest. If you're follow physiotherapy treatment.

1. Looks like she has plantar fascitis (foot loses its normal arch below and becomes flatter). 2. Use 1 course of pain killers with vitamin c.3. Use shoes made for plantar fascitis that maintains the arch of the foot. 4. Tennis ball/arch stretching exercises are available on you tube and can be implemented once the pain reduces after taking medication. 5. If she is post menopausal and not on any calcium supplements / consider using calcium and vitamin d3.

I have a heel pain problem with my right leg. Since it is already 4 month that I felt pain in my heel portion. For this I have consulted a two doctors (general surgeon and orthopaedic) but both the doctors advice is same. They have prescribed some pain killers and vitamin tablets (tandowell forty) but after using this medication the heel pain being not relieved so again I consult the same doctors and they advised me to take steroid (kenacort 40) and I have took it yesterday and doctor said me to take every week upto 3 steroids. So my question is that is it okay to stop after one steroid or should I continue. I need proper way to get rid of it. Please sir/ ma'am help.

Ice. Use an ice pack or cold compress on your foot for 10 to 15 minutes at a time. This is especially beneficial at the end of a long day or when you’ve spent a lot of time on your feet. Or, roll a frozen water bottle under your foot. This method incorporates a bit of massage, relieving tightness in the bottom of your foot. Massage. Massaging the arch of your foot helps to relieve pain and promote mobility. Use your fingers and knuckles to deeply massage your foot for 1 to 5 minutes at a time. One technique is to place both thumbs at the center line of your arch and move them to the outer edges of your feet. Inserts. Use cushion inserts in your shoes for additional support and cushioning. Inexpensive options can be purchased off the shelf. Wear supportive shoes with thicker soles and extra cushioning for additional support that can help to reduce tension in the plantar fascia. Kinesiology tape can be used to improve arch and heel support. Night splints. Many people find quick and effective results by using night splints. They can be worn while sleeping to stretch the plantar fascia. They help to keep the plantar fascia relaxed and prevent you from pointing your feet down. Exercisefoot flexuse your hand to pull your toes back toward your shin. Hold this position for about 30 seconds.Do each side two to three times. Toe towel grab place a small towel under your foot. Curl your toes to grip the towel. Raise the front of your foot off the floor. Hold this position for a few seconds. Release the towel as you lift up your toes and spread them as far apart as possible.

Your mother's foot pain from 4 years. Nsaids give short term relief and have side effects. This has become chronic. Very effective treatment is available in homoeopathy for this chronic problem. Many Lybrate users are taking homeopathic treatment for this. Homeopathic treatment is painless and safe. No side effects. You need comprehensive treatment and it takes some time. Please start taking homeopathic medicine, preliminary dose rhus tox 200-once daily in the morning for 5 days.

Respected Lybrate user. Your problem is present not only in cheppals / high heels. But it raised in your joints, muscles weakness. Poor posture. Poor nutritional status. Obesity. So please consult orthopaedic doctor at your area and take treatment and suggestions for your problem. Physical therapy also required.
