Planter fasciites

The plantar fascia is a broad, thick band of tissue that runs from under the heel to the front of the foot. Repetitive activity or overuse of our feet causes this fascia to stretch. Sometimes when this happens, small tears appear in the fascia and at it’s attachment at the heel cause inflammation, scar tissues and adhesions to form and can be painful.

Plantar fasciitis is particularly common among sports people and others who are on their feet a lot. Other factors like wearing high heels, change in posture and suddenly becoming more active for one reason or another or a change in the type of exercise may add to the problem. It also tends to occur more often as people get older, and being overweight makes it more likely, too.

With regular deep tissue massage, facia work and stretching exercises, normality can be achieved
