I have a client that had plantar fasciitis and is NOT having any trouble with it at this time. She stays in tune with how her foot is feeling when working out. My question is, is it ok to have her do calf presses? We did them yesterday and she said it doesn’t hurt, she can feel the tendon maybe stretching? She wasn’t sure, but it didn’t hurt. She completed the calf press and today when I checked in with her there was no indication that her foot was affected. My suggestion to her was to make sure to do her stretching exercises. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you
As a MELT instructor, I often deal with people with plantar fasciitis. I cannot recommend enough that your client check the MELT foot treatment. I have always seen great improvements to the point of it going away. I have testimonials to that effect on my website.
