Plantar fasciitis

Recommended Posts

Not had it but had inklings of it coming on. 

Like most things it's probably caused elsewhere. 

It's the final tendon after a lot of muscles.

Concentrate on stretches for your calves, hamstrings, lower back and hips. Very possible it's just what I think they called "referred" pain. 

Caused elsewhere. 

There are some good stretches for your feet too. But not always good to do that when something is inflamed. 

I've added them into my stretching since I had my inklings of it ages ago and all good since. 

I do this one and just ease the heels back. Cracking stretch on the plantar.

As I said though not sure if you do this whilst it's inflamed. Do a bit of googling lots of advice out there.

I had it, feet stretching helped a lot, it went in the end when I did a fast for three days

I don’t have this but suffered for years with an Achilles tendon issue. An arsenal physio (nope never played for that particular team :)) recommended me to one of those foot specialists who made me some hard plastic insoles for my shoes which supported my arch. Worked a dream and are apparently recommended for your complaint too

You can buy similar very cheap on Amazon, they were helpful for me too

You can but these things were made to measure. Under 500 quid, if they work (and they did) is incredibly cheap. I can also send off the unique code from the insoles for new ones without the cost of consultation

I don't recommend. I've been through all this years ago with numerous running injuries. Got the custom inserts too. They just ended up causing other problems. 

You are just sticking a plaster over the real issue. Exercises for your feet , walking around barefoot as much as possible etc make far more sense and helped me lots more. 

Unless you've got some medical genetic type issue. 

I just learned to run properly and walked around a lot on my five fingers. 

Anyway the OP hasn't got this through exercise so maybe not relevant. Feet exercises and stretches way forward imo. 

You can also get wee foot massage rollers that are nice to get stuck in.

there is a school of thought, that I also subscribe to, that these foot orthopaedics are ok for short term use to recover from an injury, but used long term just make your feet weak and they become dependant on them for ever more. Think of them like a next brace, if you wore  a neck brace all your life, your neck would become very weak, be prone to injury, and require constant support.

Shoes that over cushion your feet act in a similar way, I try to wear minimalist shoes as much as possible, this keeps my feet strong, and so far injury free.

Oh that is great.  Thank you, I'll have a proper look.

I pulled my Achilles a few days ago, already on the mend thanks to those guys.

I've watched that video.  It makes sense now about healing at rest and breaking it open again when you move.  Mr. J will be fascinated, I'm sure, at the antics in bed.  Poor bugger already thinks he is living in a parallel universe.

I've told him he is very, very lucky to have me.

Spoke too soon.

Because I was feeling a lot better, I over did it and today pulled it again. Can hardly walk.

I'll repeat last week but rest up instead of pushing through.

I’ve had it in the past. It took ages to settle down. I just kept trying to work out which shoes made it worse until I eventually got it to settle down by wearing the most comfortable ones. I found it hard to walk if I got up in the night
 

I’m currently suffering with capsulitis which is a similar pain but is in the second toe joint.
