Treating Plantar Fasciitis

Once a month we get together and learn different ways of treating various issues.

We look at alternative techniques from all our professions approaches!

Upon retesting we uncovered that her initial point of pain was masking a further tenderness lower into the plantar fascia attachment revealing the true underlying tension. By then releasing the Soleus we reduced the pain in this area.

Why not try a self-release technique of the Soleus and Tibialis Posterior at home?

To release your own – place your lower leg across your opposite thigh (how a man would sit cross legged reading a paper) and find the bony part, then drop off that towards you into the fleshy part, and there you’ll find the flexor tendons and Soleus. Grab the fleshy part, like you would hold a burger with one hand, and slowly pull it away from the bone.

Continued Learning is one of our favourite parts of the job
