Dr. Johanna Youner, board-certified podiatric surgeon and a Fellow of the American College of Foot and Ankle Surgeons, shows how to get rid of the pain and inconvenience of plantar fasciitis in just two weeks. First and foremost is to get better, more supportive shoes that are rigid but still well-cushioned. Also gently stretch the painful area at least three times a day, and consider icing your heel up to three times a day. Also, a night splint while sleeping can prove beneficial. If you continue to have pain, consult a podiatrist.
