Which stretching exercises are the best for PF?

Posted by Chateauveld on 8/01/99 at 20:19 (009381)

Can you tell me the stretching exercises that you use and which seem to work the best? I've heard about lowering your heels off the stairs...but are there any others that you can do say at your desk at work?

Scott tells you about stretching in the 20 page article on PF on the beginning page. Good information

I like to massage my feet while I'm sitting. Sometimes it feels better than stretching.

There are exercises illustrated on the website of the Association of Orthopaedic Foot and Ankle Surgeons at: http://www.AOFAS.org

These are the ones I've been doing twice a day, 20 reps each (holding 10 seconds each time) since the beginning of July. They've really helped me.
