Is walking good for plantar fasciitis?
Proper walking is good for plantar fasciitis. Keep walking, but have a limit to the distance you cover at a time. Walk on average speed and when you feel the pain starting, reduce the rate and try to rest your foot flat. Never forget to apply a cold pack after you return from the walk for fifteen minutes. This helps in reducing inflammation.
Keep a frozen water bottle ready to roll under your feet, if you walk for a long distance away from home. Choose the best walking boots to keep you away from plantar fasciitis. Walking and running along concrete surfaces like pavements, can worsen plantar fasciitis, even though it has been proven in some cases that walking on the firm surface has given positive results.
