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.

Homeopathic Medicines for Plantar Fasciitis

Rhus Tox – Top rated among Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis

Rhus Tox is one of the best rated Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis. Rhus Tox is prominently indicated for complaints arising from excessive stress, strain on or use of a body part. In cases where heel pain is worse in the mornings as one takes the first few steps, Rhus Tox is the Homeopathic medicine for plantar fasciitis. The heel pain subsides eventually. Apart from the above unique symptom, Homeopathic medicine Rhus Tox is also considered for plantar fasciitis cases where running and exercise worsen the pain by putting excessive stress on the heels.

Pulsatilla Nigricans – One of the most wonderful Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis where heel pain worsens from rising from seat

For heel pain that worsens when rising from a sitting position, Pulsatilla Nigricans is considered one of the best Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis. Boring pain in the heel that worsens in the evening is another unique symptom that signals use of Pulsatilla Nigricans as the ideal choice among Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis. Pulsatilla Nigricans is also helpful for heel pain that comes on every time one starts walking. Such persons feel the need to stretch their feet.

Berberis Vulgaris – Excellent among Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis where heel pain worsens on standing

Berberis Vulgaris is one of the most effective Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis where standing worsens heel pain. Few persons needing Berberis Vulgaris may specifically complain of ulcerative pain in the heel. Pain in balls of feet on stepping is yet another indication to use Berberis Vulgaris.

Valeriana Officinalis – Well indicated among Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis where heel pain gets better by walking

Valeriana Officinalis is another of the well recognised Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis treatment. Valeriana Officinalis is well indicated for plantar fasciitis where the heel pain gets better by walking. Sitting worsens the heel pain.

Bryonia Alba – One of the best Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis where heel pain worsens from stepping

Bryonia Alba is one of the most suitable Homeopathic medicines for plantar fasciitis where the heel pain worsens from stepping. Rest brings relief. Pins and needle-like sensation in soles may accompany the heel pain in some cases.

    This is second time around for PF for me, and I am being treated by a podiatrist with a boot, for walking around the house, a night splint when sleeping, ibuprofens (600mg once a day), I use an iced bottle, rest and elevate my foot. I also wear Hoka Clifton shoes while working as a dog walker. I’m not getting any sustained results or relief from these methods.
