You don't have to suffer with heel pain. You can get rid of your heel pain if you follow each of the top 5 suggestions listed above. If you do each of the top 5 suggestions on a daily basis, you have over a 90% chance of eliminating your pain due to plantar fasciitis (heel spurs).
Successfully relieving plantar fasciitis heel pain requires using a variety of synergistic treatment modalities. The goal is to stop the activities which are irritating the plantar fascia, position the foot into the correct anatomical alignment, reduce strain on the plantar fascia while standing/walking, calm down the inflammation and stretch out the plantar fascia, so that it can heal properly in an elongated position. The longer you let heel pain go untreated, the harder it becomes to eliminate the pain. For most people, using a combination of arch supports/orthotics, a night splint while sleeping or sitting down, stretching twice daily and modifying their activities is sufficient to make their plantar fasciitis heel pain progressively resolve. Fortunately, surgery is rarely needed. Keep a positive attitude and remember that, yes, you can usually eliminate your heel pain by using these treatment suggestions.

This style of night splint is much more comfortable to wear while sleeping than traditional hard plastic back (or front) style night splints. Plus, the Strassburg Sock night splint is much less expensive than most other styles of night splints.
