Can duct tape alleviate heel pain?

There are several old wives tales for almost every ailment one could have. When it comes to feet, there are just as many “home-made” solutions out there. One that has surfaced is using duct tape to help alleviate the symptoms of plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can be a very painful condition and hinder your ability to work and exercise. While there are some ways that taping your foot can help, simply using duct tape across your feet is not going to do the job. Your foot health is important and resolving to use a quick fix will only do just that, give you a temporary fix.

The best way to guarantee healing and true relief of painful symptoms is to have a foot care professional treat your condition. Plantar fasciitis can be helped with the use of custom orthotics, laser therapy and more. If you are having nagging pain from plantar fasciitis, skip the duct tape and make an appointment to see Dr. Danciger. Call our office today (760) 568-0108 or request an appointment online.
