DIY remedies might relieve foot pain

  • Golf ball.
  • Frozen bottle of water.
  • Copious amounts of fish oil.
  • Kitchen magnets.

All remedies prescribed today for what I believe is plantar fasciitis in my left foot.

At first I thought only professional baseball players got such exotic maladies.

Nope, not that exotic. Not just baseball players.

Then I thought my feet hurt because I waited too long to replace my running shoes.

That might have exacerbated the situation, but new shoes haven’t diminished the pain.

So I have to take drastic action.

Well, it’s “drastic” if you consider massaging my foot with a golf ball twice a day to be drastic.

Hey, it’s worth a shot. At least I wasn’t told to lay off the running. Or amputate.

Now that would  have been drastic.

Instead, a comedic assortment of MacGyver-like materials might provide the answer.

That would be elegant.

  1. Donnie had this problem and Dr. with a specialist. He showed him how to tape his foot to ease the pain. It really worked for him. If the golf ball doesn’t work you may have to give your Uncle Donnie a call. His foot hasn’t bothered him since he reitred and isn’t standing on his feet all day long.

  2. I’ve had this problem in my right foot for a few years now on and off. Here are some things that have helped me. Instead of a golf ball I roll my foot on a soup can after a run. That helps loosen things. I sometimes ice it after a run. But it has yet to keep me from running.
