There’s a thick band of tissue running along the bottom of your foot that connects your heel bones to your toes. It’s called the plantar fascia, and when it gets inflamed, torn, and irritated it tends to cause a sharp, stabbing pain as you walk, or when you’re forced to stand after long periods of time.
It can impact anyone, especially runners, people who are on their feet all day, or people who struggle with weight problems. It’s especially tough to deal with in the morning, after long periods of standing, directly after you exercise, or when you try to stand after sitting for long periods of time.
Good news! You probably won’t need pain killers or surgery to cure plantar fasciitis. Studies show that Stretch & Recovery therapy can help you cure this condition for good.
Plantar fasciitis can flare up in response to a number of triggers. Starting new exercise routines or changing their intensity can aggravate your plantar fascia.
Changing your shoes can also cause pain, at least until the shoes are broken in. Sadly, sticking to your old shoes may not be an option, as shoes provide less support as they get worn out.
Tight calf muscles are another issue that can aggravate your condition. Our 5 blended therapy approach will target those muscles, helping you improve strength and the range of motion in your legs.
Resting is an important part of healing plantar fasciitis. It helps to ease inflammation. Yet rest alone will not help you solve the problem.
Instead, you need to gently strengthen your calves and Achilles tendon. The stronger they become the more stable your ankles will become, which will prevent the tiny tears that cause plantar fasciitis pain.
Stretching can offer rapid pain relief, lasting pain relief, and even a cure for the condition. The key is to target the proper muscle groups: your calves, the plantar fascia itself, and the rest of your foot.
It is also important to reach for other therapies as well. For example, a percussive therapy known as fascia release can help to release tension and improve circulation, relieving inflammation.
Our five-in-one therapeutic approach will help you tackle plantar fasciitis from multiple angles. In many cases, we can help you get rid of the condition, and keep it away for good.
