Dealing with the pain of plantar fasciitis can be a daily struggle. One way to help reduce the pain of plantar fasciitis is through a stretching routine. While the pain from plantar fasciitis can take years to completely dissipate, plantar fasciitis stretches can temporarily relieve stress and inflammation in the plantar fascia tendon.
Of course, doing stretches for plantar fasciitis in combination with regularly wearing KURU shoes can significantly improve your day to day movement and reduce the persistent pain of plantar fasciitis.

I have suffered from foot pain for years and have tried every kind of shoe I could find to help. Kuru shoes are the first shoe that I have found that provides the comfort and support that I need to help with the pain! These are the only shoes that I will buy! Money well spent!"

When I wore these for the first time, it felt like I was walking on clouds. I was skeptical but desperate to relieve my foot pain and these made the pain go away. I've worn them for a year and a half now and looking to get another pair... I will continue to buy these shoes for life.
I have...severe plantar fasciitis for approximately 19 years...the arch support is absolutely the best I've tried, even better than my custom orthotics, and they are still my go-to shoes for everyday use. My Kuru Chicanes have taken the place of almost every other shoe in my wardrobe.
Plantar Fasciitis Stretches
You should devote time in the morning and evening to these stretches.
Belt or Towel Stretch:
When sitting with one leg outstretched in front of you and the other leg bent, wrap the towel or belt over the ball of your foot and pull back gently. Hold this position for 10-15 seconds, relax, and repeat with each foot.
You can use a board or a book or the wall itself for this easy, effective stretch. Set the object against the wall and place the ball of your foot on top and lean into the wall. With your hips and legs inline, hold this position for a few seconds and relax. Do this 10-20 times to increase flexibility in the plantar fascia.
This exercise for plantar fasciitis can be done anywhere. Simply place your toes on a stair or a small block and slowly raise and lower your heel below your toes. Hold this for 10-15 seconds to stretch the Achilles tendon, calf muscles, and plantar fascia tendon.
If you suffer from severe plantar fasciitis, you may need to prevent the plantar fascia from contracting at night. Wearing a night splint will stretch the heel and arch at night while you sleep. This can be effective in reducing daily heel pain upon rising.
Placing a small ball underneath the foot and rolling back and forth while applying weight will both stretch and massage the underside of the foot. Massaging by hand at the end of the day is also effective.
Ice & Anti-Inflammatory:
Regularly icing and taking an anti-inflammatory can help a lot with swelling and persistent pain. This should be done a couple of times of day depending on the severity of the plantar fasciitis.
Calf & Hamstring Stretch:
To stretch the hamstring, extend one leg in front of you with your foot flexed and lean back on your other leg with your knee bent slightly. This will stretch the calf and thigh.
Simply face a wall and place your hands on the wall at eye level and put one leg behind the other. Bend your knee and push your back leg to the floor until you feel the stretch in the back of your leg and bottom of your foot.
Back to activities you love.
