Plantar fasciitis 

What is it? 

Plantar - base of foot
Fascia - ligaments/ tendons, soft tissue. 
Itis - inflammation. 

Inflammation of the soft tissue in the base of the foot. 

What causes this? 
Consistent overstretching of these soft tissues through exercise, the wrong footwear, or failing to stretch and release muscles further up the biomechanic chain. ( calves/ hamstrings) 

What can I do to avoid this happening? 
1. Learn how to correctly stretch your glutes, hamstrings and calf muscles.
2. Work on exercises that strengthen the muscles within the feet and ankles.
3. Wear shoes or trainers with a small heel to alleviate pull on these soft tissues. 
4. Remember to stay well hydrated before during and after exercise.
5. Don't forget to stretch post exercise. For some people this could be after a long walk, for others it will be after regular runs.
6. Hill climbing can be the culprit of this inflammation, so again stretching muscles post climb very important. 

What can I do if I suffer from plantar fasciitis? 
1. All of the above recommendations can be used to help treat planter fasciitis.
2. Be careful not to overstretch ligaments and tendons.
3. Using a cold can or bottle from the fridge to roll underneath your foot can help reduce the inflammation and provide temporary relief.
4. You can use a tennis ball, or golf ball also to roll underneath the foot to help release some of the tightness. However be careful with this, avoid putting too much pressure on the ball of the foot so as not to increase inflammation
5. Take a look at your footwear, you are exercising in. It's worth going to have your gait analysed, to ensure you are wearing the correct trainer for your foot.
6. If symptoms persist, or worsen, it may be time for you to see a podiatrist, potentially you may need orthotics to help with the biomechanics of the foot.
7. You may at times be offered a anti-inflammatory/steroid injection however this may not always be affective. 
8. If you can continue to exercise, it is really important that you warmup correctly.

Part 2

Stretch
Once you have mobilised and warmed up the shoulders and arms, add in the following stretches. 

Forward reaches
Place hands on the back of a chair and walk body backwards until you come into a forward fold, use the weight of the upper body to sink into  the stretch, holding position from 30 – 60 seconds.

Lateral arm reaches w/ sweeping brush handle.
Kneeling down, walk hands up the length of the handle. Lean over to one side and hold the stretch in this position. If tight - You will feel this stretch underneath the armpit and down the side of the rib cage. Repeat on the other side.

Shoulder Rotations in lying.

Lying on the floor, reach arms up towards the ceiling, now bring elbows back down to the floor, keeping elbows in-line with the shoulders and finger tips reaching towards the ceiling.  Allow the back of one hand to lower towards the floor, as the palm of the other hand also lowers to the floor, try to keep shoulders on the floor. As you can see in the video, although we are aiming for the floor with both hands it is essential to keep shoulders down. With practice this will improve.

Auxillary webbing / cording

There is no known cause for this, however the following movements and stretches can help prevent it and improve range of movement following an episode of cording and are safe enough to do daily.

Part 1 – Mobilise

These movements can be done independent of the arm, however for women who struggle with lifting the arm on the effected side, or have any lower back issues, using the arm can help facilitate the exercise.

Arm Circles
Start with a small movement and increase the size of the circle as shoulder begins to warm up. Remember to circle arm in both directions and complete exercise on both arms.

Side to side swings
Start with a small movements, using the pendulum effect of the exercise to support arm as it swings out to the side, taking the weight out of the exercise.

Forward and back swings
Again use the pendulum motion to take the weight of the arm, increasing the size of the swing as you complete exercise.

Shoulder mobilisation
This exercise uses the handle of a sweeping brush to help facilitate this movement. A Band can also be used if there is no loss of power in affected side. Remember to sit tall and try not to let rib cage lift as you bring brush handle over your head and behind. You may not be able to complete full movement to begin with, gradually over time this will come.

How to - Pilates ball

Are you new to pilates and wondering how to progress your moves by introducing a pice of equipment. 

Why not give the following exercises a try. By introducing the Pilates Ball (7inch) to the following exercises you will notice the body working harder to stabilise the movement, working deeper into the deep core muscles to create strength and challenge the body. 

✨Ab Prep - by adding in the Pilates ball behind your back, i the movement begins from extension, good core control is required to help prevent rib cage flare. 

✨Heel touches - balancing pelvis on the ball introduces instability into the movement. Remember not to grip the floor with your arms, and if feeling confident raise arms above the chest as you preform the exercise

✨Back extension - make sure to engage core and not to push tummy into the mat. Working with the ball allows exercise to begin from a place workout flexion. 

✨Scissors - a great exercise to work not only the core but also the hip flexors while also stretching adductors ( inner thighs). Add the ball to increase the instability and work load of the exercise. 

Why not give these a try today and let me know how you get on....
