Common Causes of Plantar Fasciitis in Men
Plantar fasciitis is a common overuse injury. This means you usually get PF when you suddenly exercise harder or more often, or when you suddenly have to stand or walk more often than usual.
The plantar fascia gets inflamed and even torn when it takes on too much stress, and that inflammation leads to pain and stiffness in your feet and heels. Changing jobs, switching shoes, or exercising more often can all contribute to a case of plantar fasciitis.
Effective Ways to Reduce Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is extremely common. Fortunately, it can usually be treated at home with simple interventions and without seeing a doctor. Because plantar fasciitis is an overuse injury, resting your feet can help them recover. Try to elevate your feet when you sit, and consider applying ice for 10-15 minutes after you finish work for the day to boost circulation and speed up healing.
Regular stretching and exercise can also help prevent or treat plantar fasciitis. By strengthening the plantar fascia and surrounding ligaments, you reduce your risk of strain or an overuse injury. Finally, wearing comfortable and supportive shoes like KURUs can give your plantar fascia a break—even when you have to stay on your feet.
