All ok underfoot?

By TheSCI 0

Pain on the underside of the foot or the heel is a common problem, known as plantar fasciitis. Pain killers can help but a better solution could be to check whether any tightness exists with the calves or the achilles tendon. Use of a foam roller can help with this problem, as can specific stretches of this particular area. Rolling a small hard ball on the underside of the foot in different directions can also help to stretch the strong ligaments which may ease the pain.
For specific advice on a particular injury please feel free ask our in-house physio Paul, or book an appointment on 07796957950.
