PE #012 Plantar Fascia, Achilles and Nerve Entrapments with Russell Wright

David Pope and Russell Wright talk about everything to do with feet and ankles. Plantar Fascia and Achilles Tendinopathy are conditions that need good differential diagnosis and specific tailored treatment programs, especially in runners, and in this episode we chat about how you can get the best results with these patients. We cover:

  • causes of plantar fasciosis
  • strengthening of the plantar fascia
  • what exercises work with plantar fasciosis, and which ones are a waste of time
  • nerve entrapments that can be involved in plantar fasciosis, and how to identify * these
  • the role of taping and orthotics
  • achilles tendinopathy
  • eccentric programs and progressions
  • ankle sprain rehab - keeping it functional
