Plantar Fasciitis

Support Group & Health Community

I have had great luck with deep tissue (hurts a lot at first) massage for Plantar Fasciitis. I was so impressed I started working with Robin Vorauer to create a book and video about how to break up scar tissue and inflammation to relieve the pain since it worked for me. Anyone with deep tissue massage experience?

plantar fasciitis survival guide is pretty much already created that does just that, I am almost fixed because of the methods. They cover trigger points/fascia release/cross friction massage/kinetic chain stretches. Lots of work but I believe its the only thing that has helped me and other treatments are a joke

I was told to stay off my foot for 4-6 weeks, since 2 injections and a lot of PT hasn't worked. Has anyone else had good results with this treatment

I have had PF in my right foot for 8 months. I won't get cortisone injections because of the damage steroids can do to the heel pad, but I have tried just about everything else I have read about, including deep massage.

The first time I did it my heel hurt so badly I could barely walk at all for about 8 hours. The next morning it was still tender....but better. And my foot has become progressively better since then. I haven't tried the really deep massage again but do massage my foot at least twice daily.

It sounds strange, but I used the blunt end of a screw driver handle to really get to the exact spot where I could feel the inflammation. And I used a great deal of pressure and imagine there was some bruising. But it does seem better....at least at the moment.
