Best foot forward - Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common running injuries that we see here at Stow Physio.  

What is Plantar faciitis?

It is an inflammation of the big band of tissue underneath your foot. It is commonly caused because something else somewhere is not right, either your trainers, your training plan (too much too soon?) or a stiff ankle or tight calf muscles. It is important therefore to work out the underlying reason that you have got it, so that it does not come back again, as well as treating the symptoms.

These symptoms are, pain under your heel or into the underside of the foot. It can be a very sharp pain, worse when you first start walking or running, but likely to ease a bit once you get going.  It can be very painful when you first get out of bed in the morning but ease as you walk around. Just standing still, or when you are resting it should not be too bad.

The good news is that we have been sharing our treatment ideas.  Stretching, taping, exercises and foot mobility all so that we have our best foot forward when we treat you!
