Stretch of the Week #6

Rolling out the plantar fascia!

This can be done with a lacrosse ball or a golf ball! I find a tennis ball is too soft, but do what is most comfortable for you.

You can do this seated or standing.

Don’t go crazy! People often think “no pain, no gain”! This is not the case: do not roll so hard that you are in agony, as you can often create inflammation (or add to it) in the plantar fascia by doing this too aggressively. Use similar pressure to what I am using and you could do 1 minute per foot.

This could be a pre and/or post exercise technique. It’s a great mindless exercise you can really do anywhere!
