Does the Massage Gun Help with Plantar Fasciitis?
It’s never a yes/no answer and will depend on your situation.
Importantly, please make sure you’ve got a proper diagnosis from a Healthcare Professional, of plantar fasciitis.
Heel pain can be caused by a variety of things so you need to know what you’re dealing with first, to figure out what will help you improve.
Have tight muscles been identified for you?
If you’ve seen a healthcare professional to get your diagnosis, have tight muscles been identified as one of the areas you need to improve? If so, the massage gun can help. You can use the massage gun to target:
- Under the foot
- Around the calf muscle
Have you tried the massage gun and it hasn’t improved things for you?
Pain can be caused by several factors. If using the massage gun doesn’t work, it may mean that tight muscles aren’t the primary driving factor for your symptoms, and you’ll need to do something else.
The massage gun is great to use, but it needs to be in combination with relevant exercises or treatment.
