Every day our feet are susceptible to extreme workout and when we wear severely fitting shoes we put them under great pressure and make their functioning much harder. Over time this may lead to some excruciating conditions, for instance, plantar fasciitis, a constant swelling of the ligaments on the base of the foot.
Competitors very often experience the ill effects of this issue and the reason for that is the extraordinary strain that they put on their feet when they run or jump. Ball, soccer and tennis players (also artists) are at high risk of this condition, as well.
But, athletes are not the only persons who get plantar fasciitis. Namely, individuals who are dormant or overweight are at high risk to get plantar fasciitis. Women who wear high heels on daily basis may experience this and other foot issues.
This medical condition goes ahead gradually. It starts with sharp agony that happens just when the foot is put under strain. Over a time, in some patients we are talking about weeks, at others – months, this torment becomes more successive and even begins to happen when the foot is in a resting position.

Dr. DeFabio uses a moisturizer to grease up the skin and that actually makes the metal instrument to float over much easily.
The next step of this treatment is to diminish the weight on the ligaments. Dr. DeFabio uses an uncommon tape called “Kinesio Tape” for this. The extensive tape should be wrapped around the heel and reach the toes. Then, littler tape is adhered to the expansive tape in order to take more weight of the heel.
