MineFit Tidbit: Long “Healthy” Walking/Activities Lead to Foot Pain and Healthcare Claims

Posted By Darrell Smith, Friday, March 18, 2016

Plantar Fascitis is easy to get, hard to identify, and easy to treat with proper guidance.

Did you know that the majority of foot pain stems from calf stiffness eventually causing injury? It is quite easy to fix.

Go from the toes to the knees and release everything systematically to avoid all foot and ankle problems. Place special focus on the Releasing Regimen below, and turning on your hips when you walk, to give the lower leg a break.  

Also, call 202-999-5FIT if you or an employee have an issue you need immediate help with. 

Releasing Regimen
(1) Put a ball underneath your foot and roll it back and forth, about 3 minutes per foot.
(2) Grab a towel or strap, sit on the floor or (if you are on site and can’t) put your leg on an elevated surface, wrap the towel/strap around the ball of the foot, then flex and point the ankle 20 times per side.
(3) Put both hands against a wall, and act as if you were going to move that wall 20 feet back, only using the length of the back lower half of your leg.
