Plantar Fasciitis: The All Important Wall Stretch

This video demonstrates the most important stretch for the plantar fascia. The plantar fascial wall stretch can be done hourly, but encouraged 5 times daily. There should never be any pain in the achilles, plantar fascia, or toes while stretching. The patients are encouraged to deep breath while stretching. See our previous videos on the Generalizations of Stretching, the 3 Important Achilles/Plantar Fascial Stretches, and the AM Plantar Fascial Stretches.

  1. thank you so much for all these really valuable videos and advice. I suffer a lot from night cramps in my calves and feet especially after riding a bike for long distances. I don't hydrate enough and I don't stretch enough so I am going ot take your advice and "get on my bike" with it. Thanks again
