Recovering from an injury doesn’t have to stop you from working out. You may need to slow down or modify certain exercises depending on your injury, but there’s always a way to get you moving and back on the road to feeling good and mobile again.
Plantar fasciitis is a common, painful foot condition. It is inflammation of the band of tissue that runs from the heel along the arch of the foot and can cause severe foot pain. There are many ways to promote healing, but that’s for another post. For now, we’re giving you a workout that you can do despite pain from PF.
