Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis would have to be two of the more common ailments I have seen in runners during my relatively short time as a coach. These conditions can often last for 6, 12, 18 or even up to 24 months, and as a runner I know what you’re thinking “that is far too long to be away from running”. If you are like me, you want to get back out there ASAP, which is why I like the iMove Physiotherapy team and their dedication to keeping you running through conditions such as these wherever possible. You want to be able to notice significant improvement on a weekly basis in the first 6-12 weeks – and you should if you get the right advice. There really is no excuse for these types of conditions to be hampering your running for 6 – 12 months, or longer!!
The iMove Physio team take a multi-modal approach by attacking these conditions from several angles which Co-Owner Michael Rizk has outlined for us in this article. Common points in rehab AND where people go wrong in regards to treating Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendinitis will also be covered in follow up blogs.
