If the first step you take out of bed in the morning is excruciating in the area around the bottom of your heel, you might have plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can be a long standing issue if not identified early and proper treatments put into place. Plantar Fasciitis is characterized by pain in the bottom of the foot in the connective tissue that runs from the base of the heel to the toes. It is responsible for supporting the largest of the three arches in the foot, and vital to proper walking and running form.
Symptoms tend to include pain in the morning upon taking your first few steps, redness and swelling in the sole of the foot, and pain with running or walking. People who wear stiff shoes or boots for prolonged period of time such as military, police, or fire personnel, factory workers, and health care providers. Runners also commonly experience plantar fasciitis, particularly when running in a shoe that is not a good match for their foot or the terrain they run on.

Icing the foot using Treat My Feet Hot and Cold wraps is ideal. Rolling the foot over a water bottle filled with water and frozen will bring relief and assist in inflammation reduction, while simultaneously massaging the plantar fascia. This should be done for 2-5 minutes 3-4 times per day. Stretching the calf muscles and foot muscles themselves is important to restore fascial mobility. Stand on a step and drop the heel off the step with the leg held straight.
In some instances of chronic plantar fascia, more aggressive treatment is necessary. See a physical therapist for an evaluation of your foot and ankle, and analysis of how you walk or run if applicable to detect the root cause of the plantar fasciitis. Manual therapy including myofascial release, massage, and mobilization of the ankle and foot may also be deemed necessary.
