Plantar Fasciitis should be thought of as more than just a problem with the sole of your feet.
Clearly, your pain will likely be easy to locate, however in order to truly fix the condition, we also need to treat its hidden underlying causes. Otherwise, we might be missing the point entirely.
Clinically, I find its cause has as much to do with the way the entire leg (and low back) functions as it does with the Plantar Fascia itself. And these broader issues are easy to miss if you aren't looking for them.
Whether it be ankle stiffness, tight hips, weak hip muscles, low back dysfunction, or a combination of each, it's important to correct these issues if wanting to give Plantar Fasciitis the boot long-term.
Most, if not all, of these broader issues may not overtly let you know they're an issue, but from what I find clinically - they will most likely be there.
In this video, I go through 3 top exercises to treat Plantar Fasciitis at home. The first is a simple exercise to treat your Plantar Fasciitis symptoms - which is still really important of course. And the other two correct some of these underlying hidden causes.
Remember, there has to be a reason why one specific part of your foot has become dysfunctional, which is often likely one-sided or worse on one side.
So if you're struggling to shake Plantar Fasciitis and feeling a little defeated, please go hunting further up the leg. You could legitimately be missing some hidden, easy to improve mechanical issues that are holding you back.
