Do you suffer from arch or heel pain and need to know some effective remedies for plantar fasciitis?

Your feet are literally your support and when they are in pain, it affects your whole body.

Plantar fasciitis is simply inflammation of the plantar facia that runs along the bottom of your feet.

It's generally a stabbing pain caused by a number of things, such as inadequate arch strength, obesity, strenuous exercise, improper foot wear, and faulty foot mechanics which can include the way you walk.

Keep reading for some great remedies for plantar fasciitis that will bring relief!

1. The Barefoot Grip

One of the best remedies for plantar fasciitis is strengthening your arches.

Spending years with our feet in shoes causes the muscles to relax, which diminishes muscle strength and support for proper walking.

Practice gripping the ground several times a day with your bare toes, allowing your natural arches to dome up and be strengthened.

2. Lose Weight

I'm sure you're well aware that obesity causes an array of health problems and one of those ailments is plantar fasciitis.The extra weight and pressure on the feet causes muscle strain and pain, and can lead to fallen arches and difficulty in walking with proper form (straight on, with toes gripping the ground in one fluid motion).

Losing any extra weight means less pressure and strain on your feet which we can all appreciate!

3. Strengthen Your Ankles

There are many factors that play into relieving foot pain and one big one is strength.

Do you love wearing high heels?

They are SO much easier to walk in when you have strong feet and ankles!2

Not only that, you won't be prone to rolling an ankle during exercise or quick movements if they are strong.

Practice balancing exercises that involve standing and reaching on your toes, as well as articulating the ankle joint by pointing and flexing your feet and toes.
