Plantar fasciitis is probably the most common cause of heel pain, which is most common in middle-aged people. But, it’s nothing strange to those young people who are on their feet quite a lot, like athletes or soldiers.

Plantar fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports the arch. Scientist believe that this is a natural reaction of the bone which is exposed to mechanical load and because of the irritation that comes as a result of walking with this load.

The pain is horrible when you get on your feet after you sit for a longer period or when you get out of bed. And the pain can be horrible, and some people say it’s pretty painful. Also, plantar fasciitis is easily to get if you are overweight, you wear the wrong shoes, or if you have high arches or flat feet.

While the pain is like crushing the heel with a hammer, there are traditional ways to relief that pain. Here’s a list of several tricks to get you through your day:

  • Press the heel on the floor gradually and gently, a few times throughout the day.
  • Coatings of potatoes are always a great choice. So, wash the potatoes, grate them with the peel, and place the mixture on a gauze, apply it on the affected area and use a nylon bag to wrap the area. You’ll notice great results after just a week.
  • Coatings of salt and honey. Make a mixture out of these two ingredients and apply it on the affected area. Use this treatment on a daily basis for at least three days, and you will feel relief after just 10 days.
  • This recipe is relatively new, and it’s a medical tincture based on aspirin. You should take 10 tablets of aspirin or about 200mg and make a powder out of it. Pour 250ml of rubbing alcohol over the powder. This mixture should stay for two days, and then, place the coating directly on the heel and use a nylon bag and socks to wrap it. This treatment will leave you with great results and great impressions.
