Self help for plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis can be a tricky, chronic problem.  If you suffer from it, it’s best to seek out professional help in order to learn what’s causing your case.  Some common causes include:  improper training techniques, over training, and worn out shoes, as well as extremely flat feet, or feet with very high arches.  Some of these things you can control (such as your choice of training activities and the quality of your shoes), others, such as the shape of your feet, you can’t control.


I had a pretty bad case of plantar fasciitis a few years ago, and believe one of the reasons I am free of it today is due to the stretches that I consistently do.  Good medical attention (which included custom orthotics) and very good shoes that are the right type of shoe for my particular situation are the other two things that I credit with helping me .

 I made a little video of some of the stretches I do in the hope that they’ll help  you, too!
