Plantar Fasciitis: The All Important Wall Stretch

This is one of the most important stretches for patients with plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is primarily a tightness problem, so stretching properly from day one of the injury is crucial. The stretch can be done from 3 times daily to every hour. It should never hurt while doing or after. The stretch needs to be held for 30 seconds or 5 deep breathes. Deep breathing get oxygen down to the tissue and makes it much easier to stretch. Hold the stretch with no bouncing. Enjoy the video. Dr Blake
