After getting to a particular age, everything in this world needs some repairing or treatment, whether it is a human body or a machine. If we talk about the human body, it is more sensitive than a machine. With age, the bones weaken, skin loose, and several medical problems surround you.
But the main issue that affects the human body is the weakening of the bones, especially the lower body, which provides support to the body, problems like knee plantar fasciitis (เอ็นฝ่าเท้าอักเสบ, which is a term in Thai), bunions, osteoarthritis and many other also.
Today, we are going to talk about one of them, which is plantar fasciitis. In our foot, there is a part called the plantar fascia, which is all over the bottom of our foot and connects the heel to the toes and helps in foot movement. In this medical problem, there is an inflammation in the plantar fascia. This is a common problem that occurs with almost every person. We will also look into the treatments for this issue. Let us begin.
What Are The Treatments For Plantar Fasciitis?
As it is not a significant problem, there are treatments for it also which can help you all out:
· Proper Rest And Good Excercise:
If you have any medical problem, especially with your lower body, then rest is the most essential part of your recovery. Avoid activities that need more foot movement or any sort of high-pressure exercise.
Do exercises that could be more impactful. Exercise will maintain your body weight, resulting in less pressure on the foot. Also, regularly stretch the plantar fascia and lower calf, use a towel for extension, etc., which helps lower the foot tension.
· Proper Footwear:
Choosing appropriate footwear can help you recover faster than usual because it can make your foot movement easy, so avoid tightening footwear and go for loose and soft ones. You can also consult the doctor for proper footwear.
· Taping-Strapping And Therapy:
Taping and strapping for the foot provides you with more balance and helps in the fast recovery. A physical therapist can help you more and provide proper stretching, flexibility of the foot, and proper information about the exercises.
· Iceing And Rolling:
Iceing helps reduce inflammation. Regularly apply an ice pack to the area for at least 15 to 25 minutes. Go for a ball or ice bottle, put it under the foot, and roll it, which helps relieve the tightened muscle and reduce pain.
