What can I do about Plantar fasciitis?

Lots! Common treatments for plantar fasciitis you can do at home include applying anti-inflammatory products like fisiocrem, using heat to encourage healing, wearing more supportive shoes, using a soft heel pad, and doing calf and arch stretches. These sort of simple therapies might be all you need to get things going in the right direction but if they fail, we regularly work with you to use treatment options like moon boots, shockwave therapy, K laser therapy, orthotics, footwear changes, exercise modification and custom exercise rehab programs to get you up and moving again.
