Foot and ankle injuries can perhaps be some of the most debilitating injuries…😡


Not only do they shut you down from running, they also can shut you down from being able to function in your regular daily activities.

They can also take a long time to get over, as you have likely experienced…

But, here’s the great news...They don’t have to!!!

Many runners use “band-aids” as their fix for foot and ankle injuries - change shoes, purchase orthotics, ice, stretching, and all sorts of other fads out there.

And if they have done some strengthening, it often hasn’t worked either...because they are likely strengthening the wrong areas.

Does this sound familiar to your story? 🤔

In this episode, we are going to be covering:

  • What is Plantar Fasciitis
  • How do I know if I have plantar fasciitis (what are the symptoms)
  • What causes plantar fasciitis
  • How long does it take for plantar fasciitis to go away
  • What is the best treatment for plantar fasciitis
  • What is the best exercise for plantar fasciitis?
  • How do we prevent it from starting or coming back?
