  • I think your video is better than a lot of them I’ve seen on this subject because it’s addressing generic heal pain, going over some of the possibilities it could be but NOT making definite diagnosis of what it is.

  • Amazing! Found this after a lotta search in the YouTube. And this is exactly what I needed. Helped me a lot with my posture and day to day aches as you mentioned. God bless you.

  • Oh I like you. Thank you so very much. I dislike the term ”activate” when hearing any discriptive term referring to exercise. However, in any event, in over fifty years of regular training and teaching I have only practiced half of these calisthenics. And can’t recall anyone explaining them so well. They are going into our regular routine. Thank you once more. Have a great day.

  • Great video and thank you for sharing the knowledge
    in order to gain maximum benefit how many times per week would you say to do this regularly?

  • This is for me! The most problematic parts of my body are hips and low back, with pain in my left thigh till my knee. I was supposed to have flat feet but it seems it was related to the rotation and tension on my hips, as my therapist found. Actually I’ve been doing a variation of the first exercise, and it relieves me a lot, but this video is the most complete set of exercises on hips I’ve ever been taught. Thank you!

  • Wow, those are gorgeous calves. If you want more followers I suggest doing lots of videos on calves exercises because that is the number one area guys have a hard time building.

  • it’s important for everyone… wether you are a guy who goes to the gym once a week or a guy who…. how about if you are a woman? everyone, so not just men I hope haha Just something to look out for I find a lot of you tubers who are into fitness cater for one gender. You get more followers if you make vids for both. just a tip

  • I have been dealing with heel pain for close to a year and just watched your video yesterday (6/20/20). I started with the runners stretch in the morning and couldn’t believe that I could barely separate my legs no more than a baby step apart. Anyways, I stretched for 30 seconds on each leg and for 3 reps. The pain in my calf was almost unbearable but stayed with it until done. I didn’t really have any calf pain prior to stretching, I was only concerned with my heel.

  • Thank you for a very helpful video. I have a question why do I have the pain around my heel? Is there something different that I should do?

  • I liked the video and presentation.
    Quesi hv heel spur in both my heels. Starts paining even with small activity.
    I also been feeling the pain at the back of the heel areaarea not touching the groundback of the feel.if massage feels very good and painful. I have this when i was a kid, still feel pain these days,why so?
    The leg bone, front side,lower half if the leg bone just above the foot,feel pain if lets say i press with thumb or my kids stand on it,or sit on my legs while sitting cross legs position,
    Whats tge reason and any cure?

  • Hi, I have heel pain and cannot understand how massaging the heel makes it better, surely if inflamed as it is, wouldn’t that make it worse inside? My name is Kathy and just need help, had this 5mths now. Thankyou

  • Hey Obi! First of all, great vid. Question; do you really do all of this before EVERY workout? Would you say that doing this once a week could be fine?

  • Thank you so much the information Dr Jo. I tried the stretch and it brought relief. Of course my little baby only allowed few minutes but will sure try all these. Would these work on chronic pain, mine has been ongoing for 8 years now. Had CS injections without any relief. Thank you!

  • I subscribed because I’ve been dealing with some pain in my right heel for about a week. I have plantar fasciitis in my left foot and bought Kuru shoes specially for that. Now my right heel is extremely painful. Just randomly started. I’m not sure if it is an extension of my injury from when I was a child that still gives me pain.

  • Hey Doc. Great Video. I am suffering with SEVERE Heel Pain. I am 45. I’m pretty sure it’s planters Facaitis. I’ve had it for a few years off and on. Usually it hits when I get out of bed and then goes away later in the day. About month or two ago it started to hurt all day with throbbing stabbing pains in my Left heel no matter if I’m walking or laying in bed or on the couch. My right one does not bother me. With all the Covid19 going on, I’m having a hard time to get referral to see a doctor. I just bought some new Danner work boots and Dr sholls planters faciatis Ortho in soles. My question to you is, if I do these exercises along with my new boots and in soles, how long do you think it should take to go away??? It hurts So bad right now. I thought i was going to be sick the other day from the pain. Thanks for your time. Greg George.

  • Hello I have a child 10 years old has a contact pain can I know what is the reason his pediatrician took a radiograph and said no problem has found

  • Hi Bob and Brad, So in that figure 4 movement, i have a lot less movement crossing one leg over the other,(ankle on knee) similar to Brads discovery. My question is, When doing stretches to get more movement, what are you actually stretching? muscles or ligaments or can arthritis lessen movement? I have no pain in my hip at all and all other hip movements are very good and in my late 50’s. Thanks guys, you do a great public service. Jimmy

  • I use the heel seats from Heel That Pain, and they are really good. I felt I still needed arch support, so I tried the “full seats” from the same company, and they are the greatest! Better than the custom orthotics I got from my podiatrist! I highly recommend both heel seats and full seats from Heel That Pain!

  • Wow I had to subscribe love all of your stretches and I’m going to try for a month the only one I will have a problem with is touching my hands with my feet over my head ������. But hey if I stick to it who knows what is possible in a month
