Stretches for Plantar Fasciitis
Tuesday, 7 July 2015 | John
One of the leading causes of foot pain, plantar fasciitis is a condition that has a huge effect on a number of people's lives. When plantar fasciitis is severe, it can have a huge effect on your comfort while walking and can potentially even render you incapable of prolonged peregrination. To help you avoid this, the experts at Shoe Insoles have compiled a number of stretches that have been designed to relieve the symptoms of plantar fasciitis and even aid with recovery.
Used in conjunction with a shoe insole which supports the tissue (known as the plantar fascia), these stretches can help treat plantar fasciitis and can also be done as a preventative measure for those at risk of the condition.
One of the best ways you can exercise your plantar fascia is to stretch the tissue and surrounding muscle, helping to get it back to its normal condition. This stretch stretches the calf muscle, which indirectly helps to stretch the plantar fascia.
Big Toe Stretch
This will stretch your plantar fascia from the other end of the tissue, and will also help it get back to its normal condition.
This is similar to the Big Toe Stretch, except it directly stretches the arch of the foot.
These plantar fasciitis stretches, if done on a regular basis and in conjunction with regularly wearing a shoe insole for plantar fasciitis can help heal the tissue and improve the condition of your plantar fascia.
