Foot and plantar fascia stretch massage [Video] Sun, 28 Oct 2012 09:42:05 +0000 Foot Care Directory Share

Are the soles of your feet sore? Does it hurt to walk? Do you have plantar fasciitis? This video shows how you can effectively relieve the pain with stretching massage.


Plantar fasciitis (PF) is a painful inflammatory process of the plantar fascia, the connective tissue on the sole (bottom surface) of the foot. It is often caused by overuse of the plantar fascia or arch tendon of the foot. It is a very common condition and can be difficult to treat if not looked after properly. ¬†Another common term for the affliction is “policeman’s heel”.

Longstanding cases of plantar fasciitis often demonstrate more degenerative changes than inflammatory changes, in which case they are termed plantar fasciosis. The suffix “osis” implies a pathology of chronic degeneration without inflammation. Since tendons and ligaments do not contain blood vessels, they do not actually become inflamed. Instead, injury to the tendon is usually the result of an accumulation over time of microscopic tears at the cellular level.
