Best Homeopathic Medicines for Plantar Fasciitis

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fascia is a thick band of connective tissue in sole of the foot running from heel to the base. Inflammation of this thick fascia is referred to as plantar fasciitis. The main symptom of plantar fasciitis is pain in the heel. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.

Why does plantar fasciitis arise?

The exact cause of plantar fasciitis is not clearly understood. Any factor that puts excessive stress, strain on the plantar fascia makes a person prone to plantar fasciitis. The risk factors for plantar fasciitis  include excessive running, prolonged periods of standing, obesity, flat foot, high arch of foot, wearing shoes with improper support, exercises that put a lot of stress on the heel and injury. The 40-60 years age group is most susceptible to plantar fasciitis.

What are the symptoms of plantar fasciitis?

The main visible symptom of plantar fasciitis is heel pain. The pain is usually sharp and one sided. The pain is worse in the morning, as the person takes his first steps. The pain decreases gradually as one gets into the routine activities. Standing for long periods of time worsens the pain. Rising from a sitting position also worsens the pain.

Can Homeopathy treat plantar fasciitis?

There is great scope for treating plantar fasciitis with Homeopathic medicines. Homeopathic medicines reduce inflammation and the attending symptoms of plantar fasciitis. The Homeopathic prescription for plantar fasciitis varies from case to case based on the symptom presentation. Top grade among Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis are Rhus Tox, Pulsatilla Nigricans, Berberis Vulgaris, Valeriana Officinalis and Bryonia Alba.
