Visit a doctor

Plantar Fasciitis is a serious medical condition and the first thing to do here is to visit a doctor. There might be a lot of remedies but only a doctor will be able to tell you the correct one.  The doctor will ask you to undergo a certain number of tests with which he can determine the extent of your plantar fasciitis.

Medication and therapies

After diagnosis, your doctor will prescribe medication for pain relief and controlling inflammation. For physical therapies, a therapist can instruct you stretching and strengthening exercises. Your doctor may also prescribe you night splints and orthotics which will help your leg and foot to stretch better and help to distribute pressure evenly.

Surgical and other procedure

A doctor can suggest you surgeries or other procedures if the regular therapies are not working for you. Few people may need to detach the plantar fascia from the heel bone through surgery.

Change your lifestyle

In case you are overweight try losing weight.  Obesity stresses your plantar fascia.

Choose shoes with good support. Look for the best shoes inserts which will help in controlling the pain and stress caused due to plantar fasciitis

Apply ice for reducing pain and inflammation.

Try simple plantar fascia, Achilles tendon and calf muscle stretching exercises at home.
