What are some of the most used and stressed parts of our body? The feet. We walk, we run, we jump, we wear stylish fashion shoes but very uncomfortable, or we just do nothing and get overweight.
All these things can lead to heel pains and in their most severe form, they can degenerate to the so called Plantar fasciitis: one of the most common causes of heel pain (to not be confused with the Heel Spurs). Plantar fasciitis involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).
So, if you would like to enjoy a peaceful life and do an action that should be simple and obvious (walking), you are surely among those who wish to know how to get rid of this annoying problem.
Today you may discover how to come back to “life” doing the ordinary things you, maybe, have not been able to do for decades. Following you will know 7 ways to cure your heel pains easily and hassle-free.
1. Regulate your physical activity
2. Wear special shoes
3. Do relaxation exercises
4. Use local treatments
But beyond these ordinary methods, a new genius way has been found that can cure your heel pains easily and quickly using an interdisciplinary approach: Dr. DeFabio (orthopaedic and chiropractor) treatments. The aim is to reduce the swelling first, then to treat the area and strengthen the calf muscles. Let’s have a deeper look below.
5. Dr. DeFabio treatments: the “Roller Massager”
Very easy to find and buy. Also called “Muscle Massage Stick” , it can be used at home or wherever else you prefer.
6. Dr. DeFabio treatment: the “Graston technique“
Dr. DeFabio uses this technique in conjunction with the roller massager. By using a specific metal tool and an ointment, he removes the dead tissues and adhesions: the tissue is stretched, the skin gets more elastic and the blood circulation is improved.
7. Dr. DeFabio treatments: “Kinesio Tape“
This is a special tape applied on the heel for 3-5 days, in order to relieve the tension on tendons, as shown by the pictures below.
