Plantar fasciitis medication can be an effective tool used to combat the condition. Specifically, anti-inflammatory and pain relieving medication have provided much needed relief to many plantar fasciitis sufferers.
Remember that plantar fasciitis is, indeed, an inflammation of the plantar fascia connective tissue. Thus, anti-inflammatories can often be used very successfully to treat it, especially early-on. The use of anti-inflammatories during the initial rest period is often very successful in allowing a person to recover from the condition. Over the counter medications can be used, but heftier doses must be obtained by a prescription.
The actual name of this class of drugs is Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAID). This includes Ibufprofen, Advil, aspirins, and naproxen (Aleve). These drugs will also alleviate the pain in addition to combating the inflammation. You can also use the drugs in a cream form that is applied over the sore area.
Shop for pain medications that specifically target plantar fasciitis.
