Few things can derail a runner as quickly as plantar fasciitis. It is characterized by intense pain in the front of the heel bone, and quite often present first thing in the morning. At it’s worst, it can make every step, walking or running, very painful. There are several underlying factors that can cause increased stress on the plantar fascia, including lack of proper joint mechanics and limited flexibility. We cover these factors in today’s video.
Proper footwear is also a consideration for decreasing plantar fasciitis, but that’s a topic for another video! Using ice, especially a frozen water bottle to roll on, can also be very helpful.
