Quick Tip: AIS Plantar Fascia Stretch

Posted by on Jan 22, 2015 in Health and Wellness, Stretches

Even those of you who are lucky enough not to suffer from plantar fasciitis might have some tough tissue on the soles of your feet. The plantar fascia is the connective tissue that reaches from the ball of the foot to the heel, and it can take a beating from walking, running, and just general overuse. Take a seat with Scott Schwartz in this  Quick Tip, as he guides you through how to use your toes to stretch that connective tissue that gets tight on so many people. Since this is an Active Isolated Stretch, you’ll want to give the stretch 10-12 passes with increasing tension each time. This stretch should feel good, so if you feel any pain, take a break and give us a call! Try it out for a week and let us know what you think. Your feet do a lot for you; don’t forget to return the favor!
