A woman came to us with pain in the heel of her feet. She is not able to firmly place her foot on the ground to walk. When walking, she seems to be limping. In addition, she was feeling pain in her ankle and calves. She said her medical doctor has diagnosed her condition as plantar fasciitis, and recommended steroid injections.
If the condition didn’t improve, the doctor said surgery would be the next step. The surgery was to detach the plantar fascia from the heel bone. Instead of taking such drastic measures, there are effective natural remedies for this condition.
The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot. It connects your heel bone to your toes. Normally, your plantar fascia acts like a shock-absorbers, supporting the arch in your foot. If tension and stress become too great, small tears can arise in the fascia. Repetitive stretching and tearing can cause the fascia to become irritated or inflamed, and the inflammation causes heel pain and stiffness.
You’re at a greater risk of developing plantar fasciitis if you’re overweight or obese. This is due to the increased pressure on your plantar fascia ligaments, especially if you have sudden weight gain. Women who are pregnant often experience bouts of plantar fasciitis, particularly during late pregnancy.
You’re also at risk if you have a very active job that involves being on your feet often, such as working in a factory or being a restaurant server. Active men and women between the ages of 40 and 70 are at the highest risk for developing plantar fasciitis. It’s also slightly more common in women than men.
If you have structural foot problems, such as very high arches or very flat feet, you may develop plantar fasciitis. Tight Achilles tendons, which are the tendons attaching your calf muscles to your heels, may also result in plantar fascia pain. Simply wearing shoes with soft soles and poor arch support can also result in plantar fasciitis.
You can develop chronic heel pain if you ignore the condition. This can change the way you walk and cause injury to your legs, knees, hips and back.
HijamaHerbs treatments are based on finding blockages in the physical body, mental/emotional and the spiritual side (in case of sihr/jinn afflictions). When the blockages are correctly identified, then Hijama is performed to clear the blockages, and herbs are taken to rejuvenate the internal organs. To clear emotional blockages, Rahmah emotional clearing procedures are utilized.
