Big Toe Calf Raise – Heel Drop (Plantar Fasciitis)

🏃‍♂️ 🏃‍♀️🏥✅Run Injury free

Miniseries on injury prevention through running drills. Plantar Fasciitis is the leading injury amongst runners. In this video, I show you a perfect drill for strengthening the plantar fascia, the tendon like web-like structure that supports the arch of your foot. It runs from heel to toes and carries nearly 14% of the total load on your foot. This drill uses the windlass mechanism to help tighten the fascia by putting your big toe on an elevated platform. Then perform single-leg calf raises and deep stretches by pushing up slowly, hold for 2 seconds and slowly releasing to a deep stretch. Progress to adding load to the body like wearing a backpack or adding dumbbells. Note that some discomfort is ok when performing this drill but lingering pain should not occur.
