What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot. This inflammation typically causes a stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel. Pain can be triggered during your first few steps of the day or after standing for long periods of time.

How massage therapy can help?

Treatment can help reduce tissue pain and tenderness, reduce swelling through hydrotherapy, and decrease pain-related disability through regular exercises.

• Self care is important!
• Rest is important to help alleviate pain
• Apply ice to the heel 3-4 times a day
• Strengthening and stretching exercises.
