Step by Step

  1. This exercise helps if you have a tight Plantar fascia on the sole of your foot.
  2. Like any exercise this should be pain free or shouldn’t increase existing pain levels, during, after and the next day.
  3. In sitting, rest your foot up onto you opposite knee, with you opposite side hand clasp the foot as to resist under the ball of the foot.
  4. Next with you other hand pull the big to upwards.
  5. As you do this you will feel like the ball of your foot will start to push down against your other hand.
  6. You must press on and stop any motion occurring in the ball of your foot. This will get the stretch onto the plantar fascia.
  7. Once you reach the desired range then hold the stretch for 20-30 seconds and repeat this 4-6 times per day

Online Physiotherapy

Put simply this is Physio done via either telephone or video over the internet. Skype and facetime are examples of this.

Contrary to popular belief online physiotherapy can be very effective and it can help the same injuries that face to face physio can help. I have helped many people with injuries such as disc prolapses, tennis elbow, neck pain and much more).
