Favorite Fidget Device for Plantar Fasciitis

My plantar fasciitis has been acting up since April. The good news is I’m getting some relief. Left foot feels good. Right foot (heel) is still sore when I first stand up. I’m wearing my boot at night on the right foot. But my FAVORITE thing that helps? A tennis ball or baseball! (I stole one of each from the dog.)

My foot doesn’t look puffy in real life! Must be the camera angle. 

I roll it beneath the arch of my foot while I sit at my desk. It’s such a simple thing, but I wish I’d known about this sooner.

Plantar fasciitis is such a pain. Literally!

  1. Thanks for the tips. I clicked on the link for the condition and thought it sounded like something my son suffers with. I’ve forwarded him the link and the tip for the tennis ball. Hope your foot is soon feeling better.

  2. I hope you have physical therapy exercises for your plantar fasciitis. And are only wearing shoes with good arch support or orthotics. It’s really useful to do a few achilles tendon stretches before putting weight on your foot in the morning. I can usually do a few stretches/flexes while still lying in bed before getting up to go to the bathroom. I was told never to walk barefoot — bought a pair of sandals with good arch support to use instead of bedroom slippers. I had an agonizing few months before getting treatment: orthotics (not custom ones) & lace up shoes that discourage pronation, and a set of leg and foot exercises stretches that have kept the agony from recurring for over ten years now! Good luck.

  3. I had to laugh – under your desk looks kinda like under my desk! I use a racquetball. 🙂

    I keep one in an old sock of my husband’s, too, for my back. I get this knot behind my shoulder blade, and I can use that sock-ball to get it into position and then lean against a wall. 🙂
