Have you heard of national wiggle your toes day? Well lets get those toes wiggling with plantar fasciitis exercises to decrease pain and improve the spring in your step!

Did you know it’s National Wiggle Your Toes Day? Well, apparently that’s a thing so in honor we have a few exercises to address plantar fasciitis. And sorry for the spoiler alert, that might involve some toe wiggling. The plantar fascia is a connective tissue that runs from the heel to the toes and supports the arch. It’s role is to:

1. absorb shock 

2. support the body weight and 

3. adjust to uneven terrain. 

Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation in that connective tissue that therefore causes pain in the bottom of the foot.  Having pain in the bottom of your foot could be related to 

1. Poor mobility or tightness 

2. Excessive mobility with poor stability 

Usually these conditions can be noted by high arches or flat feet however not in every case.

As always consult your local provider or us at Human Race Health if you need assistance. These exercises are suggestions and may need to be varied based on your personal condition.
