Don't use cans of soup, use beer cans. Have a ready supply of cold ones and stick one under your foot. Once it starts to warm up, crack it open, get another cold one, stick that under your foot and drink the open one. Rinse and repeat. I guarantee you that one way or t'other the pain in your foot pain will disappear!

Fascia is like a continuous web that envelopes the entire body and everything in it. Quite often the pain we feel is often a result of tension as elsewhere in the myofascial system (the muscles and fascia of the body) usually resulting from an injury, trauma or posture. Quite often people (and therapists) will just treat the "pain" or area of the pain but not always the cause. So the pain will go away for a while, but its quite common for people to have the same reoccurring injury over and over. They rest until the symptom eases and then go straight back into the pattern of disfunction. If its got to the stage whereby its affecting your training, and you can afford it, I'd definitely see a therapist that specialises in fascial work.

Now thats the best advice ive had so far!!

It makes sense what you are saying, my podiratist was saying that its linked to (without going too technical) calf muscles and the achililes heel, which makes sense as most of our lessons we are up on our toes. As far as i can remember back we were doing skipping, and its not something ive done a lot of after that class I thought 'wow my feet hurt today' proberly stressed my muscles too much.

The calves form part of a chain of muscle and fascia that goes all the way up from the soles of your feet to the top of your skull. Here's a really good introduction article by a guy called Tom Myers who wrote a book called "Anatomy Trains" which is very good. He's a western based bodyworker who has taken a very holistic view of human physiology that is virtually identical to some of the approaches I use in Shiatsu. This article, especially if you look towards the end where it details the myofascial meridians, will give you a very good idea of how dysfunction in one part of the system can cause a referred pain elsewhere in the body. Personally I'd be very surprised if the problem is in calves, again I think that would be more of a symptom than a cause.

Hey man, I know exactly how u feel because I also had planta faciitis. I had for abour a year and a half... The only sure way to get better is by resting like hell man, avoid being on ur feet tooo longgg and massage and strech the feet and a muscle called tibialis anterior on the front lateral side of ur leg, basically on the right side or left side depending on which leg(shin) .. It took me 3 months to get over it... sacrifice training time man trust me its worth it cause now i havent gotten any pain since march...

Bow out with respect from a TKD/BAGUA MARTIALIST





3 MONTHS how old are you? 19-25 years old. I spoke with a former college Basketball player, now a coach and plays summer leauge (35-38 yrs old) he said it took him 2.5 years for his to completly heal. I had the same injury and it took me 18 months to heal. Accept for cold and heat treatment, massage and rehilbitaion drills there not much that could be done. 3 months man I miss being young.

OP Good luck healing, let me add one of the things that slows healing is reinjury try not to use the that foot for kicking especially the roundhouse kick on the heavy bag until it healed, even when using the shin. Air kicking or light striking pads maybe ok during the healing process but not the heavy bag or sparring.

Oh to be young again...

I generally treat plantar fasciitis with ultrasound, joint mobilizations and exercise. If it is real pesky, I will use iontophoresis (medication) at the end.

Find a good PT that uses manual therapy and what I mentioned.

E-mail me if you have questions.

I used one of those mini trampolines (rebounders) as part of my re-hab after I had Plantar fasciitis (2 years of pain! and a load of visits to a PT). I don't know the science behind it (if any) but it seemed to help.

Good luck,
