Top 5 Home Remedies For Heel Pain

  • Apply lavender essential oil

Lavender essential oil has anti-inflammatory properties that make it a possible treatment for pain caused by inflammation. Lavender can help with many ailments, such as reducing anxiety or heartburn when used in aromatherapy form and is also an effective sleep aid because of its relaxing scent; however, the most common use is to treat inflammatory pains like arthritis. To relieve your aches and swellings at home without having to visit a doctor’s office every time you feel twinges from sore muscles or joints all over your body—try diluting lavender essential oil into olive or coconut oils before applying directly on affected areas just below feet bottoms where there are more nerves present which will absorb this soothing agent faster than any other spot on the human anatomy.

  • Use orthotics

Your doctor may recommend orthotic shoe inserts or foot pads to help distribute your weight more evenly, especially if you have high arches. These can be found at most pharmacies and also made by a custom-made for your feet based on the shape of their arch so they fit right into place when needed. After wearing them for only a few months, you should find that these “shoe insoles” are able better accommodate all of the pressure put onto each part of your feet while walking!

  • Wear a night splint

Night splints are the best solution for relieving plantar fasciitis, and they’re perfect for those who have had it for at least six months. They work by stretching your arches and calves overnight so that you can get relief while sleeping through the night without having to do any extra work! The hard or soft model is all dependent on what works better with your body type; either way, these devices will make a noticeable difference in how quickly you recover from this painful condition within just a few weeks of use!

  • Stretch

After a long day, you might be tempted to lay on the couch and not move. But instead of doing that try gently stretching your foot by bending it up behind you as much as possible without feeling any pain or discomfort in the arch at all. For some people this will actually cause even more soreness but for others they can feel like their body is finally releasing after years of tight muscles constricting them when they least wanted it too!

  • Massage

You can use your thumbs to massage the arches of your feet and heels. Start by massaging from up near the balls of your feet all the way up to just under where you feel pain on either side in order to soothe it quickly. Use a golf ball for even better results- place one foot flat on top, take hold with both hands firmly onto something stable like a bed or table leg, and roll it back and forth between those two points until you’re feeling relief!

All of these remedies may work for you, but it’s best to talk with your doctor before trying any new treatment.
