The weather is getting more beautiful every day and I’m seeing more runners at my office. One of the primary problems seems to be foot pain, especially plantar fasciitis.
Before you consider getting very expensive orthotics, I suggest you read about how repetitive strain injuries and tight muscles will cause pain to be felt at the insertion point on the bone. In the case of plantar fasciitis the muscles involved are your tibialis anterior, peroneals, and the calf muscles: gastrocnemius and soleus.
Simply releasing the tension in these muscles will eliminate the foot pain in 95% of the people I see at my office, and that I work with online and through my forum.
