Question from patient: (Sydney)

My physio has given me some stretches for my plantar fasciitis. Hanging my heel off a step and pulling back on my toes. Is this right, as i dont seem to be getting better?


No. Our experience at Sydney Heel Pain is that these stretches cause the fascia to pull more on the heel bone and increase heel pain. You should refrain from these stretches. Please see our video on the home page.
