Orlando, FL -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/29/2016 -- There are many conditions that potentially cause heel pain and one is Plantar fasciitis. This condition is very common among dancers, athletes and runners. While there are pain medications available, there are also natural remedies believed to be helpful for the condition.
Heel pain sufferers may benefit from the use of glucosamine supplements. Glucosamine is one of the most popular natural remedies nowadays. It is widely believed to be helpful in reducing pain and improving the mobility of athletes and individuals with arthritis.
"The most trusted glucosamine supplements contain methylsulfonylmethane (MSM), which is believed to help fight pain and inflammation," said Divine Bounty spokesperson, Melissa Scott.
Bodily movements are supported by a thick band of tissue called the Plantar Fascia. This is found at the bottom of the feet connecting the heel and toes. Unfortunately, when the Plantar Fascia is involved in a trauma, injury, or disease process, it could result in pain and discomfort.
Individuals who suffer from heel problems typically experience difficulties while doing normal activities such as walking, jumping, or running. When plantar fascia is engaged in inflammatory processes, it refers to a condition called plantar fasciitis.
According to Rachelle Buchbinder, study author of the study published in the New England Journal of Medicine, heel pain as well as difficulties in walking is typically caused by plantar fasciitis.
The good news is that in the report published in the Alternative Medicine Review scientific journal, 80 percent cases of plantar fasciitis is spontaneously resolved within 12 months through home remedies and lifestyle modifications.
The success only involved the use of home remedies and lifestyle changes, and this means medical treatments were never administered. Individuals who suffer from the condition typically experience symptoms such as stiffness, swelling, difficulty in walking, inflammation, and worsening of pain after engaging in weight-bearing activities.
The most common causes of plantar fasciitis are injuries, physical activities, being overweight or obese, pregnancy, wrong size or fit of shoes, and foot problems.
There are remedies that sufferers can resort to, and one is to limit the activities that would worsen discomfort and pain. They may also seek help from a professional such as a podiatrist to learn about the best ways to choose the right footwear.
Glucosamine supplementation is also another option that sufferers are advised to resort to. Glucosamine is believed to help regain the health of damaged cartilage. It is also thought to be extremely helpful in improving the health of tissues and the joints (http://www.amazon.com/Glucosamine-Sulfate-Supplement-2000mg-serving/dp/B0126ZF0B0/?ie=UTF8&m=A8G127BZKAULA&keywords=glucosamine).
