Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation the arch muscle, which inserts into the heel, so it often comes with heel pain. In addition, the Achilles tendon also inserts into the same area, so plantar fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis is often related.
So is there a cure for plantar fasciitis? Yes.
When you first come to a podiatrist for treatment, plantar fasciitis is treated with acute treatments like injections, stretching, or anti-inflammatories. But to cure plantar fasciitis, you need something that’s going to create muscle memory.
Plantar Fasciitis Treatments
Muscle memory is created only in a couple ways.
- Physical therapy, which is often done for four solid weeks.
- Custom orthotics or over-the-counter insoles, which will produce muscle memory over longer periods of time.
- Archmaker, an easy-to-use foot splint for plantar fasciitis, which is now available on Amazon.
Archmaker is a device that you wear at rest, as opposed to the other treatments of physical therapy and orthotics. And when worn four hours a day for four weeks, it too will produce muscle memory.
Muscle memory is the only way that you can get long-term plantar fasciitis relief.
