Plantar fascia injury: ice and cortisone

What you should know about application of ice or cortisone to heel pain and plantar fasciitis

Did You Know...

Ice or cortisone injection is counterproductive for recovery of plantar fasciitis or bursitis.


  • It's always best to assist oxygen, lymph and nutrient delivery to and from the foot because the plantar fascia, being a-vascular and also far from the heart and lungs, inherently heals slowly.

Cortisone injection or ice application, or anything that restricts or slows circulation of blood or lymph, should always be avoided.

How ice or cortisone stops or inhibits healing and relief of heel pain and plantar fasciitis.

plantar bursitis: often overlooked

Addressing the cause(s) is always the answer. However, the common approach is icing to mitigate inflammation - and therefore pain. Relief is only temporary and the condition is aggravated by icing, for the same reasons as explained above. FootMedic Kit's contain the methodology to help resolve plantar bursitis.
