Re: Plantar Fasciitis stretches/massages

The advice Allen gave above should be helpful particularly the stretching of the gastroc/soleus which is often overlooked. Also, the stretching of the smaller muscles of the lower leg is key to prevent multiple injuries of the lower leg and foot including plantar fasciitis, shin splints, and ankle sprains. Here is a link (WFS) to a quick 2 page read with figures explaining 6 simple foot drills to perform daily. These drills are key for injury prevention.
