Plantar Fasciitis


Plantar fasciitis affects the connective tissue in the base of the foot. This connective tissue is known as

the plantar fascia.

There is a lot of pressure placed through this connective tissue and it absorbs the shock through the foot.

If you get a tear in the plantar fascia or and irritated area then it will become painful and walking or running

will become near impossible.

Muscle therapy techniques can help to take the pressure off the plantar fascia and reduce the likelihood

of it getting any worse. 


Self management is important with plantar fasciitis. Rolling your foot on a golf ball can help release the

plantar fascia. Stretching out the calve muscles (Gastrocnemius and Soleus) will also take the pressure off

the plantar fascia as the calves wrap around the heel and blend into the plantar fascia.​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​


Techniques that can help back pain include:

  • Sports & Remedial Massage

  • Active release techniques (ART)

  • Myofascial Release

  • Fascial Manipulation

  • Dry Needling
