- Activity Modification
- Strength and Flexibility
If you have pain developing, or are advising another on proper treatment, and you don't believe the injury or pain requires a more complicated approach, continually work in all 4 of these areas. \
- What are you doing as anti-inflammatory (like icing or NSAIDS)?
- What mechanical changes are you making (like adding Sole inserts)?
- What changes in the activity are being employed (biking instead of running, etc)?
- What exercises are you doing for strength and flexibility of not only the injured area, but the surrounding areas?
