Stretching-does it really work?

Posted by Kristin on 11/18/98
A physiatrist who gave me a tentative dx of PF said I needed to do stretching since lack of flexibility caused this whole thing. A ortho surgeon who I have just been referred to also wants me to stretch. Does anyone have pain with stretching? If I start to feel the slightest amount of stretch I have pain, so I've backed off. If I don't do any stretching I feel like I'm not putting any effort into my own recovery. Next step is a cortisone shot. Exactly how painful? Very willing if I can run again. Thanks! 21:22:01
