Plantar Fasciitis Minneapolis

Is your plantar fasciitis keeping you from enjoying all that Minneapolis has to offer? From water sports to hiking to scenic parks, there’s always something fun to do in the great outdoors of Minneapolis. But if you have plantar fasciitis, your heel pain may be holding you back. Learn more about plantar fasciitis and a new treatment option from Minneapolis Vein Center.


Plantar fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia—the thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes—becomes inflamed. The most common symptom of plantar fasciitis is heel pain. The condition typically develops gradually with mild pain, which may progress to severe. Heel pain is usually worse first thing in the morning, and may subside with normal activity throughout the day.


You can reduce the pain of plantar fasciitis with simple at-home remedies including:

  • Stretch – Simple stretches on the plantar fascia, Achilles tendon, and calf muscles, each morning can help to reduce pain throughout the day.
  • Wear the right shoes – Choose footwear with good arch support and shock absorbency. Minneapolis plantar fasciitis suffers should be sure to replace old worn-out athletic shoes before running.
  • Apply ice – Minneapolis plantar fasciitis sufferers can throw an ice-pack or two in a backpack before heading out for a day of hiking. Applying ice to the heel area for about 15 minutes 3 times a day will help to reduce pain.
