Here’s the test… Sit down in a comfortable chair. Cross the leg of the involved foot over the opposite knee. With either thumb, press firmly on the bottom of the involved heel, towards the arch of the foot. If you find that this spot is tender and painful to you pressing on it, then most likely you have Plantar fasciitis. Now…using the hand on your affected side, take hold of your affected foot and pull your toes back towards the shin. This creates tension/stretch in the arch of the foot/Plantar fascia. Repeat on the other side for comparison. If this step feels so much tighter on the affected side, then you most likely have Plantar fasciitis. Now you may be asking… can Plantar fasciitis heal and pain subside without medications, injections, or surgery? In most cases, yes…but it depends on but not limited to the following factors: • Length of time you’ve been suffering. • Things you’re doing that are making the condition worse without you knowing it. • Degree of swelling and tightness of the Plantar fascia.
