Plantar Fasciitis Treatments

Possible treatments for plantar fasciitis:

  • Anti-inflammatory medication: Oral anti-inflammatory medication, such as ibuprofen, will relieve pain and reduce swelling.
  • Equipment: Splints worn at night can keep the plantar fascia from getting tighter while you sleep. Over-the-counter heel cushions, gel heel inserts and well-cushioned, “shock-absorbent” shoes are also helpful.
