James' Achy Feet

Plantar Fascitis is what comes to mind as I received an e-mail from James: Every morning when I wake up and get out of bed my heels of my feet are very sore. My left heel more so than the right. As the day goes on the pain gets more manageable. The pain is worse the day after I run. Will nutritional supplements help me. James. response: James, in short, nutritional supplements most likely won't help with the pain if you have plantar fascitis. A very good indicator of this are the symptoms you have described. It is possible that cartilage is involved and therefore can be helped by high quality nutritional supplements including Glucosamine, but more likely the pin point pain in your heel and pain from walking, especially in the early morning, are indicative of plantar fascitis.

I suggest seeing a Physician, maybe a Sports Podiatrist, who specializes in feet. Common treatments include rest, ice, stretching, orthotics (shoe inserts) and above all rest.

High quality (pharmaceutical grade) Nutritional Supplements and Optimizers (primarily Glucosamine and Omega 3 Fatty Acids) will ensure that your provide your body with required and essential nutrients for your general health and ability to combat degenerative disease such as joint pain, but, the plantar fasci covering your heel is not a joint. So I fear nutritional supplements will not take away your heel pain, but can certainly help you provide nutrients for optimal health.

  1. Nothing is worse than suffering from knee pain. It's a real torture and I needed something to ease the pain. Fortunately, my cousin suggested following a fascial stretch therapy and I've been praising him ever since. Goodbye pain, hello healthy walking. I managed to reintroduce in my schedule football and I can't be more happy.
