Yoga Asanas To Manage Planter Fasciitis

Do you experience heel pain while taking first steps getting out of bed or sitting for a long time. If yes,  then there is quite a possibility you might be suffering from Planter Fasciitis. You may have less stiffness and pain after you take a few steps. But your foot may hurt more as the day goes on. It may hurt the most when you climb stairs or after you stand for a long time.

The plantar fascia is a thick ligament that runs across the bottom of the foot connecting the toes to the heel. If it becomes inflamed, extremely tight or tears slightly, it can cause slight to debilitating pain called plantar fasciitis.

It most often affects active men and women of ages 40 – 70. It is one of the most common orthopedic complaints relating to the foot.



Doctors generally advise rest, calf stretches, pain relievers and ice application in order to help the ligament heal. You might be advised to pick shoes with good arch support and a cushioned sole. Or try heel cups or shoe inserts (orthotics ). Try using them in both shoes, even if only one foot hurts.
