Heel Pain: Early Signs of Developing Plantar Fasciitis


 I hope this email finds you well.  I have  foot question.  I am having sharp pain in my left heel upon getting out of bed barefoot  in the morning. It improves once I put on shoes and the day progresses.  Is this an immediate ah ha moment for you as a podiatrist and is it simply fixed?  thanks 

Hey Barbara (name changed),

 That is normally the start of plantar fasciitis. I will send you a link on stretching 5-10 times per day, and 2 times a day roll your foot on a frozen sports bottle. You are catching it early. Rich
