    Thank You SO much, Becky. I think I will have to go to doc, you’re right.
    Still, I LOVE your videos.
    Thank You so much!!!!

    @Cebela11 Hi Cebela, I’m so glad the video was helpful. The fact that your foot is swollen and hot concerns me. I think icing is a good idea, but this sounds like something that needs medical attention right now. If I were you, I’d make an appointment to see your physician before continuing with the suggestions I have in my video, as you want to make sure you know what you’re dealing with first!

    Hi Becky!
    Thank you sooo sooo much for these tips.
    I have been running many years, in all kinds of shoes…no problem…but last week I did too much running after a one year break and suddenly my foot hurts SO much! Not only in the morning, but I can hardly walk, the foot is swollen and hot the whole time! If I use ice, exercises and your other tips… can I cure it for good or will I be probably stuck with this my whole life? Thanks so much,

    @lherbertson As long as you don’t feel any strain in your back, I think it’s fine to stretch your plantar fascia while you’re in bed.

  • lherbertson:

    After seeing this video, I started using the stretch strap before I get out of bed in the morning. I’ve been doing that for a few days, and it’s made a big difference. I stretched frequently throughout the day, iced after workouts, but adding that stretch strap really helped the pain. Thank you for the advice.

    One question–is it okay to stretch while in bed, or should I be on a harder surface?

  • BoomerWorkouts:

    @Little70Red Yes, taping can be very helpful. Best to have a podiatrist or athletic trainer familiar with taping show you how to do it.

  • Little70Red:

    I’ve had heel pain for over 2 months & it was getting extremely sharp. I had actually discovered stretching my calf against a wall several times a day helped a lot along with buying a good pair of running shoes. Your other suggestions – the ice pack, foot massage & step stretch – are extremely helpful & are making a big difference in reducing the pain. I’m going to look for a foot brace next. I’ve seen a video about taping your plantar fasciitis, is that something you’d also recommend? Thanks!

  • BoomerWorkouts:

    Hi Sandra. Sounds like the shoe is putting your foot in a position that exacerbates your fasciitis. My thoughts:
    Possibly a defective shoe
    Possibly a minor change in the shoe design by the manufacturer

    I have been trying to heal mine for 2 months now. I have not had a problem until I purchased a new pair of running shoes — same running shoes I have purchased for the last 10 years. I went 3 weeks without wearing them, got to the point that my foot was not hurting, wore the shoes for 2 hours and was right back to the same pain as before. Why would this happen?

  • CPerin55:

    Ah, thank you Becky! I will continue to work on this as I am planning to do lots of hiking this summer so I must get this solved. I am training to be a Health & Wellness Coach so I will be checking out your blog and may even send some folks to watch your videos and check out your blog!

  • BoomerWorkouts:

    @CPerin55 Thanks so much for taking the time to leave a comment. You made my day—I’m SO glad my suggestions helped you. Your plantar fasciia will probably tighten up overnight, so do make sure to continue with these exercises. Plantar fasciitis can be pesky. Keep up the home remedies and you’ll be able to beat it!

  • CPerin55:

    Thank you Becky! I have been bothered by this for a couple months and went hiking over the weekend and really had a problem. I tried all your tips today and my foot feels so much better. I am planning to continue daily until my foot is better. Thanks again so much for your help!
