Plantar Fasciitis – Massage Therapy
Doing a standing calf stretch twice a day can decrease the tension put on the plantar fascia.
Standing Calf Stretch:
1) Stand up straight.
2) Step forward with your right leg and place the ball of your foot against a wall.
Make sure to point your toes toward yourself as you place the ball of your foot against a wall (avoid putting your toes on the wall).
3) Lean in with your body towards the wall. Keep your back straight when leaning in.
4) Hold for 30 seconds and then repeat with the other leg.
5) There should be no pain of any kind when performing the stretch. You should feel the stretch in your calf muscles (back of your lower leg) of the leg that is placed on the wall.
