Re: Avoiding Plantar plantar fasciitis AGAIN!

Does anyone have any tips for easing back into this w/o getting injured again? I am seeing lots of advice but, much of it contradictory! Most of the advice is aimed at relieving PF symptoms - don't jump, don't go w/o shoes, stay off the toes etc. I want to know what I should be doing to better my chances of avoiding injury again! Like, what about jump rope? What about doing ankle and toe lifts with weights? Will these activities make me stronger or just irritate the foot again? **
Soft tissue work with a golf ball to the entire bottom of your foot, and using "The Stick" on your lower legs.
