Plantar Fasciitis exercise at home


Bismillahirahmanirahim this is one of the common injuries that always make your heel pain is caused by a traction injury with some inflammation of the tissues of the heel and the underside of the foot. Usually patients have a flat foot, i.e. loss of the instep (long arch of the foot). Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position. I always mention to my patient that is the treatment is aimed at relieving your pain and restoring this arch. Another alternative my advice to Patients often find that trainers or similar shoes give most relief. These shoes are shock absorbing and have an arch support. You have been supplied with a pair of Sorbothane arch supports with heel pads (cushioning insoles). These should be transferred to all your shoes/boots – even your slippers.
If you have a problem with only one heel please use both insoles.

  • Try to minimize walk around in bare feet and It is important to do stretching exercises for both your Achilles tendon and your plantarfascia.

  •  Please try to perform the exercises overleaf at least twice a day as this will speed the healing process and reduce the pain more quickly and also help to strengthen the arch .

Achilles tendon and
plantar fascia stretch

First thing in the morning, loop a towel, a piece
of elastic or a tubigrip around the ball of your
foot and, keeping your knee straight, pull your
toes towards your nose, holding for 30 seconds.
Repeat 3 times for each foot.

Wall push-ups or stretches
for Achilles tendon
The Achilles tendon comes from the muscles at the
back of your thigh and your calf muscles. These
exercises need to be performed first with the knee
straight and then with the knee bent in order to
stretch both parts of the Achilles tendon. Twice a
day do the following wall push-ups or stretches:

(a) Face the wall, put both hands on the wall at
shoulder height, and stagger the feet (one foot
in front of the other). The front foot should be
approximately 30 cm (12 inches) from the wall.
With the front knee bent and the back knee
straight, lean into the stretch (i.e. towards the
wall) until a tightening is felt in the calf of the
back leg, and then ease off. Repeat 10 times.

(b) Now repeat this exercise but bring the back
foot forward a little so that the back knee is
slightly bent. Repeat the push-ups 10 times.

Stair stretches for Achilles
tendon and plantar fascia
Holding the stair-rail for support, with legs slightly
apart, position the feet so that both heels are off
the end of the step. Lower the heels, keeping the
knees straight, until a tightening is felt in the calf.
Hold this position for 20–60 seconds and then
raise the heels back to neutral. Repeat 6 times, at
least twice a day

Dynamic stretches
for plantar fascia
This involves rolling the arch of the foot over a
rolling pin, a drinks can or a tennis ball etc, while
either standing (holding the back of a chair for
support) or sitting. Allow the foot and ankle to
move in all directions over the object. This can
be done for a few minutes until there is some dis
comfort. Repeat this exercise at least twice a day.
The discomfort can be relieved by rolling the foot
on a cool drinks can from the fridge.
Its simple to practice and insha Allah it will help you to minimize the symptom and also help to reduce the pain..wallahuaklam.
