  1. great post !! how long have you been practising therapeutic massage for?

    I work for http://www.sportsinjuryclinic.net and have written lots about Plantar Fasciitis, so hopefully you guys will find this information of use!

    The most common symptoms of PF include:
    • Shooting pain under the bottom of the heel
    • Pain in the arch of the foot
    • A tendency for increased pain in the morning

    There is no single treatment for plantar fasciitis. However, most clinicians will agree that the most important factor in treating this condition is to stop the condition from getting worse and getting to the root cause of the problem. If the cause is not highlighted early, then the condition is likely to deteriorate – leading to further problems!
