Injuries similiar to plantar fasciitis? (Read 78 times)


    Anyone know if there are other injuries that are similar to plantar fasciitis?  After running a 4-5 miles my fascia gets really tight to the point where I have to stop.  It was happening for awhile so I went to the doctor who suspected platar fasciitis was the issue.  However I don't have the typical PF symptoms.  I don't have any pain in my heel and my feet feel fine when I get up in the morning.  Just wondering if it could be anything else like tendonitis.  The doctor barely did anything or asked me any questions which is why I'm skeptical of the diagnosis.

      Feet are really complicated with a lot of little bones, tendons, muscles etc. I would find someone who does Active Release Technique in your area (http://www.activerelease.com/providerSearch.asp).  If you don't have anyone around your area who does that and this has been going on for a while, I'd tell my doc I would like physical therapy.

      Live the Adventure. Enjoy the Journey. Be Kind. Have Faith!
