Not long ago, my mother in law was faced with a rather widespread problem — intolerable pain in the heel or popularly said she had a “plantar fasciitis” or “jogger’s heel “. What is plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis (jogger’s heel) — Calcar calcaneal – is a structural break down of the heel bone usually facing downwards, it is considered that this reactive formation of the bone appears due to chronic mechanical overload, and due to a irritation that happened while walking which caused pain.
It is common in older people and people who stand a lot in their profession. It is characterized by the severe pain in the middle of the heel, which does not allow you to move your heel a lot.
Painful symptoms occur in the first steps after sleeping or sitting too long, and they appear in the heel or on its inner surface.
The heel pain can be so unbearable that people say that it is like hammering nails right on the heel, which was the case with my mother in law.
The traditional methods of treatment are considered as more effective than any cream purchased at the pharmacy.
