Pffft on the PF

If you have been a runner for longer than…a month, you have had some aches and pains and hopefully not a serious injury.  I have experienced the full circle from minor to 4 months of rehab.

2011:  Blown out hip

2012:  Start of achilles issues that did not let up until 2013

2013:  Plateau fracture on my tibia (leg)

2014:  Severe ankle sprain

2015:  Diagnosed with Meniere’s Disease (daily battle)

2016:  Still dealing with Meniere’s Disease + this nagging heel problem

 

Many heel problems are mistakenly diagnosed as PF.  My primary pain is in that middle place where it could or could not be PF.  So, what do you do about it?  There are a plethora of remedies.  Here is how I am dealing with it:

 

  1.  See a chiropractor or Physical Therapist for ART treatment
  2.  Do Trigger Point Massage at home
  3.  Taking a few days off from running as it came back with a vigor this week
  4.  Wearing KT Tape for healing, freedom of movement and pain relief.  Never tried KT Tape?  Here is a link

Today, the foot feels good!  I might be able to do a slow dog-jog with my pup, Daisy tonight.
