Depending on the severity of it, you may be out for longer. If you want to nip it in the butt, go see a physical therapist about it.

Re: oh god i think i have plantar fasciatis noooo

I had a case of it and I couldnt run for 6 months. Get an xray to check you dont have any spurs which could end up in surgery worst case. Not fun.

Were you wearing vibrams or running barefoot? I think vibrams are great but if you haven't been running barefoot style your entire life, your feet just aren't conditioned for even short runs. If this was the case heal yourself up and get back into action slowly.

Re: oh god i think i have plantar fasciatis noooo

I've heard of basketball players being told to run more on their off days and complete the tear when that's the diagnosis.

What does that have to do with this thread?

Re: oh god i think i have plantar fasciatis noooo

PF has a lot of potential causes. In addition to everything people mentioned above, get your back looked at. I have been dealing with PF in my right foot for over 8 months. Nothing was helping much despite tons of stretching my calves and hammies and quality time with my lacrosse ball. I finally talked to KStarr after class a couple of weeks ago and he basically said "Duh, your L-5 S-1 is WAY overextended." I'm a dancer, so that makes sense (with the styles I do, I stick my butt out a lot). Because of him, I started getting my BACK treated rather than thinking it was all in my foot, and I now walk around conscientiously tucking my pelvis/butt under me. I'm thrilled to say the pain is on its way out (FINALLY) and I can run again! So yeah, who knew it was my back and posture causing the issue? Weird thing is, I've walked with my L5 S1 overextended for years with no issues! No idea what triggered it, but glad it's feeling better :-)

Yeah, I wrote about all that stuff in the above posted link

(this one rather wfs)
http://www.eatmoveimprove.com/2009/1...-dysfunctions/

The thing is that most foot, ankle, knee, hip, SI, and back issues are all interrelated.

When the hips and ankles lose range of motion, the knees take up the slack and you get knee pain. People with chronic knee pain who keep getting treatments for the knee need to look at their ankles, hips, and beyond because there are issues that are keeping the case coming back and back.

If anything becomes chronic there tends to be more things at work than "just" where the pain is, and the pain doesn't always indicate where the problem is. It may indicate the compensation.

So yes, PF can have potential issues from the feet, ankles, knees, hips, SI, back and sometimes even higher. Which is why I recommend focusing on all spots and seeing what is tight and limited while treating the PF itself at the same time.
