How can I prevent plantar fasciitis? Are there home remedies for plantar fasciitis?
Maintain a healthy weight, wear supportive shoes, buy new athletic shoes after every 400 miles of use, and start new activities slowly. Home remedies begin with never going barefoot – always wear supportive shoes, even indoors. This prevents strain and supports healing. Icing the painful area for 30 minutes 2 times per day and taking NSAIDs can also help. Our recommended stretching exercises for heel pain can be found here.
