Doctor's opinion on a flexible

Posted by ElishaJ on 2/01/05 at 17:26 (168264)

I had posted previous questions regarding my PF. But lately I've been doing physical therapy and the therapist suggests shouldn't do any stretching exercise, because I am already extremely flexible. My plantar fascia is not tight ever, Im painfree in the morning, but experience a lot of inflammation throughout the day. Basically, are there any cases of the plantar fascia being to loose and causing inflammation. I just dont now how to treat this anymore. No methods seem to effect the pain.
thank you

What does your podiatrist/orthopedic doctor say is causing your pain.? Inflamation isn't something you can usually see with your eyes. I wouldn't stretch is there is plenty of Range of motion. Shoulds like either a systemic disease or some type of nerve entrapement. Might want to see a neurologist .

Thank you for your thoughts. My podiatrist took X-rays and there is inflamation there. What do you mean by systemic disease. He ruled out anything nerve related because there is no tingling present.

Systemic disease such as Lupus, Rheumatoid Arthritis etc
