What is Plantar Fasciitis?
The plantar fascia is the thick band of tissue covering the bones on the bottom of the foot. It extends from the heel to the bones of the ball of the foot and acts like a rubber band, creating tension that maintains the arch of the foot.
When this band of tissue becomes inflamed or swollen, it is called plantar fasciitis. The symptoms of plantar fasciitis can include pain and stiffness in the heel, and it often gets worse in the morning, after standing or sitting for a long period of time, or after intense activity.
Treatment For Plantar Fasciitis
The best way to manage pain and inflammation from Plantar Fasciitis is by combining ice and massage. Icing (10-15min) contracts the blood vessels, slowing down circulation and ceasing metabolic activity, thus subsiding inflammation and abating pain. As the fascia rewarms, blood vessels open wider than before, increasing circulation and metabolic activity to quickly heal the injured area.
Plantar Fasciitis Massage not only provides significant relief, but it also helps the foot heal faster. A massage relaxes the overworked muscles, decreases the pain from inflammation, and helps increase circulation through the injured tissues. When left alone, Plantar Fasciitis can take over a year to heal. Massage therapy can shorten healing time significantly, making the healing process take only a matter of months.

Best Heeling Product Of The Year
"The cold massage roller has helped my plantar fasciitis. The doctor wanted to give me a second shot and I refused. I told him I ordered a cold massage ball and wanted to give that a try to help with the inflammation. He said go ahead but come back if it does not help. Well the ball helped and I did not have to get the dreadful shot. Thank you creators of the cold massage ball. It truly helped me."- Michelle L.
"After reading prior reviews (before purchasing) I was hopeful & optimistic that this cold massage roller would be somewhat effective for me as well. I have to admit I am overly impressed at the relief I have already received in the short amount of time I have had it. I suffer from plantar fasciitis & osteoarthritis in my knee, this cold massage roller has given me instant relief for both. It freezes quick & lasts a very long time. Very happy with this purchase!!"- Charisse N.
"This is by far the best product I have found for comforting Plantar Fasciitis. 100% better than the old Coke bottle, which also get wet as the ice melts... It stays cold COLD much longer too. No mess. No fuss. Set the ball in the freezer for a few hours, take it out and place it in the holder, which allows you to roll you foot around in all directions. Definitely recommend! 5 Star! Two thumbs up!"- Kenneth J.
