Hard Floors Aggravate Heel Pain
Your heels can become irritated by a repetitive activity, such as hitting a hard floor. Many people who develop plantar fasciitis report having hard wood or tile floors in their homes. You can reduce your risk of heel pain by wearing slippers at home or covering hard surfaces with rugs or shock-absorbing mats.*
Seek your doctor’s help for plantar fasciitis treatment, which will include a combination of rest, ice, compression, and elevation. In the meantime, avoid standing on unprotected hard surfaces. And when you are better, opt for exercise that does not put pressure on your feet, such as swimming.
