I am a 40-year-old man. I have foot pain which was diagnosed a few years ago as plantar fasciitis. I use shoes with special support, insoles, and cushion on the socks. I also have pain in my right knee, especially on the inner side. I want to know if there are any exercises or stretches I can do to improve my condition. Also, can you suggest any other home treatment options for the knee and the feet? I am giving you some more details about the presenting complaint. Regarding foot pain, I feel it early in the morning after walking or after sitting for a long period of time. And the knee pain is usually while walking. However, the condition gets worse if I walk after sitting for long periods of time as well. I have been going to the Chiropractor for a few months. The knee pain has gotten better. They have recommended hamstring stretches, quadriceps stretches, the wall stretches for the calf, foot stretches, and bridge exercises. For the knee pain, they have diagnosed sore muscles in the inner thigh, right above the knee and it is responding well to such treatment. Also, based on the tests they suggest my gluteal muscles are not activating fully due to prolonged sitting.
