Simple strecthing treatment!

Posted by Paulo Leitao on 4/23/05 at 19:04 (173598)

I had my (right) foot operated a couple years back by an orthopedical doctor that didn't have a clue. Years later and when the left foot was starting to feel the same symptons, I had the luck of bumping into a specialist sports doctor and fisiotherapist that told me the pain resulted from the simple fact the Facia was stiff. Solution: stretch it. It worked and I've got the problem controled -and probably solved- now. I can be contacted on (email removed)

Why not tell us here about your stretching exercises? You can tell us all instead of having dozens of emails. We all like to hear about success stories.

I had PF for almost a year until a friend suggested a calf stretch. It helped but the pain persisted. I went to a massage therapist and her treatment helped but the additional achilles stretch she suggested really has helped. I work 12 hour shifts as a nurse and have also developed some more stretches that stretch all parts of my foot, from toes to arch. I just stretch the heck out of my legs and feet morning and evening. I have also recently been stretching my quads and hamstrings which have gotten me to the point of almost no pain! It's all about stretching! And I use the best running shoes I can find replacing them every 3 - 6 months and also use 'Superfeet' orthotics which cost about $30.
