Hi there, I am new to this forum but would like some advice please. 

I have been struggling with Plantar Fasciitis for about 6 months now. I have been to my doc and he recommended basically the same treatment plan as detailed on this website and several others. The only difference is that he said that I must apply heat rather then icing to my heel and now I am confused which one to do. 

Any advice please ?

Thanks, 

Nikita

Good. Also remember that dorsiflexing your ankle (tilting it towards the knee, as the video showed) with your knee flexed / bent will just stretch the soleus muscle. If you want to stretch the gastrocnemius muscle, you must keep your knee straight while tilting your ankle.

I am very happy. I am able to find this video at right time as I recently hit by plantar fasciitis.
