My doctor told me on more than one occasion that there was nothing he could do to cure my plantar fasciitis.
He just kept prescribing me a bunch of cortisone shots and painkillers and pretty much told me that I should get used to living in constant pain.
I couldn’t believe that in today’s day and age - with all the technological advancements - there’s no way to stop the stabbing pain when I put pressure on my feet.
So I decided to look for an alternative solution on my own.
And before long, I found a Doctor who seemed to have the answer.
I decided to pay for an online consultation with him and, after a quick small talk, he went on to explain the real root cause of my plantar fasciitis.
The first words that came out of his mouth made me freeze in fear
Turns out that my plantar fascia - the tissue along the bottom our your feet that connects to your heel bone - became strained and damaged, .
This often occurs during the first steps in the morning, after long periods of rest, prolonged standing or activity, and while climbing stairs or standing on toes
The pain reduces as the foot warms up, but returns after long periods of standing and when I stood up after sitting.
That’s because after using your feet for long periods of time, this puts continuous strain on the plantar fascia. This sustained stress can lead to inflammation, pain, and swelling of the fascia, especially at its attachment to the heel.
Over time, this repetitive stress can cause microscopic damage and inflammation, leading to pain, and standing for long periods reduces blood flow to the area, increasing the discomfort.
But once you sit or rest again, the plantar fascia contracts and cools down, becoming stiff. So, when you stand back up, the cycle of stretching a stiff, inflamed fascia repeats, causing the pain to return.
The changes in the tension and flexibility of the plantar fascia, combined with micro-tearing
causes the cycle of plantar fasciitis pain.
In other words… Plantar fasciitis pain often eases as you move and your foot "warms up," but returns after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting because the plantar fascia gets tight and inflamed when inactive, then stretches and strains when you start moving again.
Your doctor has probably prescribed you cortisone shots or ibuprofen for your plantar fasciitis - but that’s probably not going to solve it.
Why? Because painkillers are only numbing the pain while doing absolutely nothing to stop the constant strain of your plantar fascia.
As the Doctor explained…
It’s like if your car was making a lot of squeaky noises because you are out of oil - and you just turned up the speakers so you don’t hear it.
You are just turning a blind eye to the real underlying problem.
The sharp, stabbing pain is the warning sign your body is sending you…
…And you should stop neglecting it before it’s too late
If plantar fasciitis is left untreated, walking can become very limited and hesitant.
You may try to avoid putting pressure on the heel to reduce pain.
This altered manner of walking can lead to compensatory issues in other parts of the body, such as the knees, hips, and back.
“Untreated plantar fasciitis can lead to altered walking patterns, causing a chain reaction of discomfort and potential problems throughout the body, from the feet to the back.”
So as long as pain is just in your feet, there’s a chance that you prevent pain from spreading throughout your entire body.
However, if you are already feeling the pain spread. You need to act fast to treat your plantar fasciitis to prevent chronic pain developing in other areas of your body
…And that is to reduce stiffness and improve flexibility on the bottom of your feet
It’s safe to assume that if you can increase the flexibility of your plantar fascia so the tissue doesn't constantly get strained…
…You can alleviate the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
But how do you do it?
Traditional medicine would suggest that the way to increase flexibility is to move around more.
However, moving is the last thing we want to do when we are in pain.
So… What’s the solution?
I asked the Doctor the same question.
