Tape To Get Rid Of Plantar Fasciitis!

Monday, July 13, 2015

Hey RIF REVers!

It's been a big few weeks with a lot of RIFREVers running at the Gold Coast Marathon! Congratulations to all of you that ran, it was such a fun weekend! 

With so many runs still to come this year, today I want to talk about plantar fasciitis or foot pain because so many runners have issues with it and you want to have a toolkit for tackling it, hopefully BEFORE it becomes a major issue and stops you running!! Basically it is usually a combination of biomechanics and technique that can lead to plantar fasciitis, often tight calves, pronating feet, high arches, the list is endless but if you start to improve technique as well as tackle tightness you are more likely to achieve your running goals and stay on the track. So if you do happen to get pain under your foot, you should try to nip it in the bud immediately. 

In this video I want to show you a way of taping the foot to ease tension on this area of the foot. It is a good way of giving the you a bit of a rest which is often enough to get you back on track. If pain is ongoing you will have to have a break but put it into your arsenal of strategies, you will find it really useful.

Have a good one RIF REVers,

Paul
