Mobility Monday: Plantar Fasciitis: A really big pain in the.....foot.

Plantar fasciitis can be one of the most frustrating and debilitating injuries for any runner or anyone that spends a lot of time on their feet.  It is a long running injury that doesn't always go away quickly and when you think it does it can come back with vengeance.

In this video Kelly Starrett gives you his breakdown of the anatomy and kinesiology of plantar fasciitis as well as plenty of ideas on how to fix it.  The great thing about this video is that it isn't just working on the plantar fascia but also on the surrounding tissues that can help relieve stress on the plantar surface and help the injury heal.

Things It Can Fix:
-Plantar fasciitis (the obvious one)
-Medial Tibial Stress Syndrome ('Shin splints'-Secondary)
-Achilles problems (secondary)
-Great toe problems (secondary)
