Put Your Best Foot Forward!

Do you suffer from sharp pain in your heel when you first get up in the morning or after you have been sitting for a short period of time?  If so, you may have plantar fasciitis.

Stretching the bottoms of the feet can help alleviate the pain associated with plantar fasciitis.


If you suspect you have plantar fasciitis, perform the exercises from our June 9th MoveCoLab Tuesday Tip “Biscuits to Bananas” and then add this one:

With your sneakers on, place the ball of the foot up against the door with the ball of the foot in the air.  Slowly bend your knee toward the wall so the toes bend backward, keeping your heel firmly planted to the floor.  Try to relax the tendon in the front of your ankle.  You may feel the stretch either under the toes, in the arch or up into your Achilles.  Hold for 30 seconds.  Rest and shake it out, then repeat.

If your symptoms do not change after a few weeks of doing this, we recommend you seek guidance from your medical doctor who may prescribe a short course of physical therapy to help control your symptoms.
