Ep128 - PT Basics...Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a very common problem for lifetime athletes. Usually manifesting as heel pain, and often quite challenging to manage, plantar fasciitis can keep you from being your best version of yourself. In this episode, PK and I discuss the following points:

  • The anatomy of the plantar fascia.
  • The biomechanical function of the tissue.
  • What exactly plantar fasciitis is within the foot.
  • How does plantar fasciitis happen?
  • How can we manage it?
  • What to do to never have it again.
