When Walking Hurts / by Kevin Swantek

Plantar Fasciitis is a condition of heel pain that can make walking unbearably painful. It tends to be a slow healing injury, and because of that it takes a strong attitude towards healing, and consistent therapy to correct the issue. The video below is by Kelly Starrett, a mobility guru who really understands the biomechanics of the human body, and has a ton of great videos on different issues of mobility that can be found online. If you believe you are suffering from plantar fasciitis, I would highly recommend watching this video. Being unable to walk because of heel pain not only decreases our ability to freely navigate the world, but I believe it also significantly degrades our quality of life in the process. Grocery shopping, dog walking, and recreational strolls around the neighborhood shouldn't hurt.  It's very important to maintain good foot health. Treat your feet well so they will last a lifetime.
