"While plantar fasciitis may affect each individual differently, there are many tips I give my patients to overcome the pain," says podiatrist Claire Capobianco, DPM. "First, when the pain starts, make sure to rest, take a pain reliever like ibuprofen, and apply ice to the painful area. Second, there are exercises you can do to help stretch the plantar fascia ligament and the surrounding muscles. One exercise is to stand on a stair, with the ball of the foot on the step, and the heel hanging off the step. Gently lower yourself down toward the heel until you feel it stretching your calf and foot muscles."

"Another exercise that might help is to freeze a half-full water bottle and roll it under your heel and arch while you are seated. Do this multiple times throughout the day to keep the ligament stretched so it doesn’t get injured during daily activities. Third, buy supportive shoes. Avoid bare feet or wearing just socks around the house. Look for non-flexible sneakers and arch supports. The final suggestion I have is if you are beginning a weight-loss program by walking, starting gradually is the key," says Dr. Capobianco.
