Plantar Fasciitis is a syndrome that causes pain in the heel and foot and affects people generally between 40-70. The Achillies tendon becomes so tight that it alters the weight distribution of the foot. Stabbing pain and even bone spurs in the heel can occur in more extreme cases. Although the causes are unclear, overuse on imbalanced kinetic structures represent the general problem. Runners and people who stand a lot for work tend to have this issue most often. According to Healthline.com, poor quality shoes that do not fit your natural arch and having additional weight can also contribute to this problem. General stretching and self-myofascial release may provide temporary relief, but may not be enough to address the source of the issue and resolve your pain. We address this issue from the Chinese perspective, releasing deeply in the calf to support the proper structures of the feet. Combined with Asian Bodywork and the techniques recommended from our Oiling the Tinman series, you will be on your way to resolving this issue for the long term pain reduction.
