      Due to long standing, walking or being in the same position for a long time, the plantar muscles are  subjected to the impact of external violence, causing local muscle strain leading to local fascia inflammation, showing localized pain and heavy walking.


Plantar fasciitis is a chronic disease characterized by painful discomfort at the base of the heel or at the plantar fascia, pain in the medial, medial and lateral parts of the junction of the plantar fascia and the calcaneus, and in particular the daily treadmill The most painful first step,

Plantar fasciitis improvement: ◎ plantar fasciitis patients should try to avoid irritating sports, long-term station or sit. ◎ use Taiwan foot Yi Jian import foot pressure detector assessment to identify abnormal mechanics. ◎ choose the right size shoes, it is best to use the tube shoes to prevent ankle abnormal twist. ◎ With the support of the arch and flexible and shock-absorbing foot Yiken arch correction insoles to support the arch and muscle, reducing pressure on foot walking, reducing inflammation and pain, to avoid fascia pull, restore the original health. ◎ Ultrasound, hydrotherapy, hyperthermia, ice compress, extracorporeal shock wave therapy and other physical therapy can relieve symptoms. ◎ Chiropractic treatment: It is necessary to evaluate and correct pelvic and lower extremity joints and soften lower extremity stiff muscles and trigger point. ◎ exercise can wear protective ankle to reduce excessive movement of the foot joints. ◎ intramuscular patch or elastic banding paste to relieve pain. ◎ If the heel spur has been seriously affected by the walk, it must be to improve the surgery, postoperative must be combined with foot brace foot correction in order to avoid recurrence. ◎ Doing daily stretching exercises, sooner or later, each stretch for about 10 to 15 seconds.
