plantar fasciitis pain treatment

Plantar Fasciitis pain commonly presents in one or all of these three ways… 

  • Pain on the bottom of your foot near your heel?
  • Pain when you take the first few steps getting out of bed in the morning, or after long periods of resting?
  • Greater pain after exercise or activity?

In this short video (below), G8 Performance founder, David Lee details an effective short-term treatment for the pain caused by Plantar Fasciitis using a ball, magnesium and KT tape.

Where to start with Plantar Fasciitis treatment…

First of all, we want to break down some of that scar tissue and inflammation that's been forming in the plantar fascia.

You'll want to use a five centimetre diameter rubber ball. We don't use a golf ball because we find they're too hard and it's too small. And we don't use a tennis ball because we find that that's too hard and too big.

So a fairly squishy rubber ball about five centimetres in diameter – that's the one that we found best fits the foot. The other thing we use is a magnesium spray. We use this because it's a muscle relaxant.

We put it on the underside of the foot because that's part of the body that has the most skin pores, and the largest skin pores so it absorbs very quickly.

Alleviating Plantar Fasciitis using Kinesio Tape

In the video below, G8 founder, David Lee demonstrates how to strap the foot using Kinesio Tape.

In short, we tape from the ball of the foot all the way back up to the underside of the calf, and that helps take the pressure off to plantar fascia – helping the condition to improve and to heal.

For a full demonstration, watch the short video below…
