Modified Towel Stretch for Plantar Fasciitis for shoeless situations

If you have read my blog, you know my key stretches for plantar fasciitis. I have many although the Plantar Fascial Wall Stretch is my favorite (see video at the end of this post). However, the Plantar Fascial Wall Stretch needs shoes on to perform correctly.  The following video shows a seated towel stretch that I think has merit to be added to your stretch routine when you do not have shoes on. 

You need the shoe on to stretch the toes from a weight bearing position.

  1. I love your stretches - thank you! As a sufferer of plantar fasciitis, I also invented a way to lift the bedcovers off my feet at night, which helped me eliminate morning heel pain. I sleep on my back and the pressure of even lightweight covers on my feet at night was killing me! I no longer have heel pain in the morning, and sleeping is so much more comfortable.
