Plantar Fasciitis: A Two Year Battle

by | Dec 2, 2020 | Podcast

“After a two-and-a-half-year battle with Plantar Fasciitis, I was finally pain-free and could run.”

It was October 2014 when I first experienced the most intense pain from my Plantar Fasciitis after I finished the Chicago marathon. Plantar Fasciitis is when the fascia that connects your heel to your toes becomes inflamed and causes intense pain in your foot.

Listen in as I share how I overcame this obstacle and was able to run again through therapy and treatment. Be sure to tune into the end where I share easy ways to combat Plantar Fasciitis and take preventive measures against other injuries.

Episode Highlights:

  • What is Plantar Fasciitis?
  • Will you still be able to run again with plantar fasciitis?
  • My physical therapies and healing procedures that helped me recover from plantar fasciitis
  • Three tips to avoid or deal with plantar fasciitis
