Conventional wisdom says rest it. If your heel hurts first thing in the morning when you get out of bed or after sitting down for a while, you may have plantar fasciitis. This is a condition related to arthritis which affects the thick bundle of tissue between your heels and your toes. If you have it you may feel a stabbing pain, but if you walk for a bit, it will ease up and calm down.
Should you walk with plantar fasciitis?
Yes, you can walk with this problem, however, you need to know what to do in order to minimize the pain and make sure you do not over do it. For example, you should:
Walk less when pain flares up
Use ice packs or cold bottles to reduce the inflammation
Wrap your feet with tape
These are just some of the suggestions for ensuring you can keep walking effectively with plantar fasciitis. It does not have to be an ailment which prevents you from walking – even long distances and when hiking. However, precautions and treatments are required.
