|Why Stretch the calf muscles?
One of the most effective treatment options for plantar Fasciitis
is stretching. Tightness if the Achilles tension and the calf
muscles, increases the prevalence of plantar Fasciitis. This
is due to tightening in these muscles, which increases dorsiflexion
(upward movement) of the large toe and stretches the plantar
fascia causing it to inflame.
Therefore it makes sense that reduction of the tightness of
the Achilles tendon and calf muscles will have a positive effective
on heel pain. Your stretching exercises should concentrate on
the Achilles tendon and calf muscles group. These exercises
can be done at the comfort of your home to treat the condition
and lessening the chance of recurrence plantar fasciitis pain.
Exercise: Stand on a step and balance on the balls of your feet
with your heels hanging over the edge. Drop your heels below
the step and hold for a minute.
Stand with your hands against a wall and your injured leg behind
your other leg. With your injured leg straight, your heel flat
on the floor and your foot pointed straight ahead, lean slowly
forward, bending the other leg. You should feel the stretch
in the middle of your calf. Hold the stretch for 10 to 15 seconds.
Repeat the stretch six to eight times. This stretching exercise
may be helpful for plantar fasciitis and calcaneal apophysitis.
Stretching devices also help stretch as the position
of the foot in a upward manner. This stretches the plantar fascia
and reduces tension on the plantar fascia.
