Any advice will be greatly recieved.
I was diagnosed with PF 15 months ago. After months of taping. stretching, new orthotics, steroid injection I really thought I had beaten it.
So.....I jogged around v.slowly for few months and started to feel a bit smug. Then after 2 weeks of a harder training (and it was hardly excessive) it's back with a vegence.
I could cry with frustraion - I don't think it will ever recover enough to properly run on it again and ever do another race.
Has anyone else been in this position? Is there light at the end of the tunnel or am i going to be plagued with this forever.
Are there any other options? I feel like I've tried everything
Yes, I do lots of calf exercises and foam rollering but haven't done any specific calf strengthening. What would you recommend, please?
Hi Gillaz, I thought i had this the other as i finished a half marathon and a day later i could bearly walk. I read a magazine article that rolling your foot on a frozen water bottle or on a tennis ball helps to stretch the area. I've not tried this as my pain has subsided thank goodness but it looked like a good tip for stretching the area which i will try when my training resumes next week.
Try this spikey ball, works wonders on PF
Will start them tomorrow.
