Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most frustrating injuries for runners and walkers because it can be so persistent and difficult to heal from. Plantar fasciitis is caused by adhesions forming in the numerous small muscles and tendons in the bottom of the foot due to injury. Typically the injury occurs due to overuse, biomechanical problems in the foot or inadequate footwear. One of the hallmark characteristics of this injury is that it often hurts worst when one first stands up in the morning and feels a bit better as the day goes on.
We have found that plantar fasciitis responds to a plan that includes ART, strengthening, and improving biomechanics is the key to successful resolution of Plantar Fasciitis even when other treatment programs have failed. We also look at any training, biomechanical or footwear issues to be sure the injury won’t return.
