Re: Plantar Fasciitis stretches/massages

I wish I could say barefoot walking would do it for me, but I'm barefoot most of the time lately - and all the time I'm doing my sports or training. When I wore shoes for everything I didn't have a bad plantar fascia.

I've been using the painkiller patch (helps a lot, the swelling has dropped rapidly), the strentch, and started doing those foot drills. When I train MMA I wear an adjustable ankle brace, which I tighten around the foot instead of the ankle. That also helps keep the patch from rubbing off during sparring. It's helping, the discomfort in walking and swelling is almost gone, and I think I've got a good routine going now to fix it.

Thanks guys!
