The plantar fascia is the part of the foot that acts like a shock absorbing bowstring, supporting the arch in your foot. Plantar meaning the bottom side, and fascia is the name of the tissue in this area. Fascia is not muscle, not bone, not cartilage, not ligament, not tendon, it is a tissue all it’s own. This fascia tissue is made up of billions of tiny fibers similar to the fibers in a piece of elastic or Lycra. If the tension on that bowstring (fascia tissue) becomes too great, minute tears can occur creating pain and inflammation. The result is foot pain. Foot pain is no fun.
I recently experienced severe knee pain after getting up from being on the floor with my legs tucked up under me. I knew the minute I got up that something when wrong in my left knee.
I have experienced pain in my knees in the past. Actually my first experience with knee pain was when I was 17 and at Drum Major Camp. I was going into my senior year of high school and had been selected senior drum major, a position I had tried out for in prior years but never landed.
Orthotics can be an important component to healthy living.
Where their running shoes are concerned, runners may need to think beyond the blinding myriad of coloured stripes and patterns. It’s no longer just a question of shock-absorbent gel or strategically placed air pockets.
When you’re considering premium footwear to prevent injuries, sports medicine specialists say that orthotic insoles, or “orthotics” – bespoke support for your particular feet – may be the way to go, especially if your problems are connected to the type of foot with which you were born.
Plantar fasciitis is a common condition involving foot pain and tightness, and many plantar fasciitis sufferers seek massage for relief. New research shows using a custom arch support helps manage pain and pain-related disability associated with plantar fasciitis.
The results of a recent study conducted by the American Podiatric Medical Association concluded that an amazing 73% of people asked said that they are dealing with foot pain. Why are more patients complaining of foot pain in the doctor’s office? Most patients have issues with their feet because of: the kinds of shoes they wear, what activities they participate in, or how their feet are structured.
Another version of using multiple Loops takes another tack for getting around the inability to use have_posts() and the_post(). To solve this, you need to store the original query in a variable, then re-assign it with the other Loop. This way, you can use all the standard functions that rely on all the globals.
