FACEBOOK LIVE- WHY ICE IS NOT NICE FOR YOUR HEEL PAIN

Facebook Live- 10th December 2019

Ice and heel pain 

Ice is a good method of short term pain relief however in the long term is not helping to heal your pain. After the plantar heel is iced, especially in combination with a massage, such as using a frozen drink bottle an analgesic effect can be experienced, however this is something that is only short term and may only last a few minutes. This is because the plantar fascia is not a highly vascular area and is more a fibrous substance. The addition of ice numbs the area to allow those first few steps to be less painful. but unfortunately this is only short term.
