Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain in athletes and non- athletes alike. It often presents as pain at the base of your heel on the sole of your foot. You frequently experience pain immediately in the morning when you first step out of bed. You might also have pain when you take your first steps after sitting or lying down for an extended period of time. It is often fairly debilitating to an athlete, as it causes pain that limits the ability to run. Fortunately, there are exercises for plantar fasciitis you can try to help you recover quickly.
In this video, physical therapist Yves Gege and I show a few exercises you can do to try to recover from plantar fasciitis.
