Heel pain can be caused by stress placed on the plantar fascia ligament when it is stretched irregularly, which causes small tears and inflammation. Stretching and strengthening exercises can help the ligament become more flexible and can strengthen muscles that support the arch, in turn reducing stress on the ligament.
Exercises for plantar fasciitis-when combined with other steps such as resting, avoiding activities that make heel pain worse, using shoe inserts, icing, or taking pain relievers-usually succeed in relieving heel pain.
Exercises for plantar fasciitis may be especially helpful for reducing heel pain when you first get out of bed.
