The Best Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Tools

Table of Contents

If you are looking for ways to treat plantar fasciitis, it can be difficult to know where to start. There are many different treatment tools out there and many different opinions about which one is the best. The truth is that no one knows what will work for your specific case, but you can look up some good options based on how much pain you have and other factors such as whether or not you want a boot or shoe inserts and of course by listening to what your doctor will prescribe for your case.

Here are some of the best Plantar Fasciitis treatment tools in the market today:

  • Foam Rollers

Rolling out the hamstring and calf with a foam roller might be uncomfortable at first, but it helps release tissue. Having one on hand is an excellent way for you to ensure that your stretches are not forgotten about! Look for something small enough so as not to get in the way when doing other things like walking or driving around town- they should feel lightweight after usage without getting stuck underfoot.

  • Hot And Cold Recovery Balls

Hot and cold treatment relieves bodily discomfort and aching muscles, as you surely well know. A dual mobility therapy is provided by heat and cold recovery instrument (massage and temperature). While the smooth or textured surface of these recovery balls will provide much-needed pressure for comfort, you may also do it yourself by placing a frozen water bottle under your foot. Simply roll the ball or bottle beneath your heel and stretch across the sole, whichever way you prefer.

  • Night Splints

The morning heel discomfort might be worse by lying in bed for several hours. In the morning, sleeping in a splint that maintains the ankle dorsiflexed and stretched may be helpful.

  • Orthotics

Excess subtalar joint pronation can induce irritation by putting tractional stress on the plantar fascia. This can lead to the formation of bone spurs, which can cause heel discomfort. Plantar fascial discomfort might be exacerbated if the foot can’t dorsiflex at the ankle during walking owing to tight calf muscles. Orthotics can assist to keep the subtalar joint in a neutral position, which can help to relieve discomfort.

Heel orthotics or full-length orthotics may be the preferable option depending on your needs and doctor’s prescription.

  • Tensoplast Wrap

A Tensoplast wrap is an awesome way to add extra support when you need it most. If your shoes don’t have insoles or they’re too uncomfortable for sleeping, wrestling and ballet then this technique will come through with flying colors! It provides that much-needed cushioning while providing space around the foot so everything can breathe during those times- no more pain nagging at you all day long.

  • Stretching And Strengthening Tools Like Resistance Bands and Towels

For foot discomfort, strengthening activities are recommended. Exercises involving the grasping of marbles and towels as well as use with resistance bands can help you get back on track! For plantar fasciitis sufferers, it is important to strengthen their arch support muscles so they don’t experience pain from heel spurs or inflammation in this area again soon after treatment has finished.

Maintaining a good posture while walking also helps prevent extra stress being placed upon your feet by improper footwear which could lead to injuries.
