Shoes Causing Your Foot Pain? Simple 30-Sec DIY Shoe Wear Test

Video taken from the channel: Positive Motion Chiropractic


The more strength and mobility you have, the less support you’ll need from your shoe. In addition, having proper foot and ankle mobility is crucial in performing a proper (below parallel) bodyweight squat. Perform the mobility work daily, and start with the strength drills every other day.

Work gently, and go slow. Shoe inserts can help with foot problems like flat arches and foot and leg pain. They provide extra support for different parts of your feet, like your heel, arch, or ball of the foot. Solutions depend on what’s triggering your pain, but here are some general pointers to remember: Wear properly fitted shoes, replacing them if they have too much wear on the heels or soles.

Foot is very complex just like a hand and all muscles and joints need to work as designed, not rest and protected all the time which will make them sick. I will play with no insoles today. I’ve been walking around like that last two days and it feels great. MOISTURIZING: Moisturizing is key to keeping your feet soft and supple, and also helps combat cracked heels.

For moderately dry skin, an all-natural moisturizer will do. For extremely dry skin (including skin that is prone to cracking), use a moisturizer infused with Vitamin E, antioxidants, and Argan oil twice a day. As your online podiatrist, the health of your feet is very important to us. Therefore, we’ll help you achieve healthy and pain free toes, heels and soles with tips on preventing and fighting typical diseases and conditions that affect the feet like warts, calluses, ingrown nails, sweaty feet, cracked heels and nail mycosis.But this section is not just medical: Articles on footwear, massage. Soak your feet.

Fill a small container or tub with warm water and add 1/4 cup of Epsom salt for each cup of water. Make sure the water isn’t over 100 degrees. Set your feet in the container or tub so that the water covers them. Among the foods that can help relieve the pain associated with nerve damage, Ginger ranks right up there among the best.

Its healing powers can be attributed to its compounds known as gingerols. Gingerols are anti-inflammatory compounds that can are particularly effective in reducing pain levels and increasing mobility among those with chronic pain. Take a pressurized can of spray, it can be shaving cream can or deodorant, step on it and roll it under foot and stop on the sore spots. Make sure to put some pressure on it otherwise you won’t get the benefit. It will hurt at first but the more you do it the less it will hurt.

If you are feeling adventurous do it with a pair of golf balls. The Men’s Health Foot Care Guide can help keep your feet feeling great and help you treat common foot ailments like foot pain, corns, and athlete’s foot.

  • Really excellent even for those without chronic foot pain. TY for the excellent video.
    *** Is there anything that can be done in physical therapy for the suicide disease Trigeminal Neuralgia? My friend suffers from this. After reading up on it, seems something could be done on back of neck and the nerve ear connection area. My friend is side-lined so often due to this condition.

  • hey,if anyone else trying to find out plantar fasciitis orthotics try Bablim Plantar Remedy Booster (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now )? Ive heard some unbelievable things about it and my co-worker got excellent success with it.

  • I’m convinced that he is correct on this. Buy minimalist shoes, and throw away the insoles. Gather a couple dozen rocks, Golf ball size to pea size. Long, round, flat, rough, smooth etc. Pick them up with one foot and place them on the other side of your other foot and move them back with alternate foot. This will increase foot dexterity as you employ atrophied muscles in the leg you are standing on.

  • I’ve had it last year and it was really frustrating. When it is a heavy one like mine shockwave in combination with exercises really helps. The exercises in this video needed to be done every day, especially the ball and stretches. I also did the exercise with picking up and setting down a bottle in front of me whilst standing on one toe. But as said, relax, progress slowely in miles in running and it will all help!

  • Brad pulls off his sock to reveal a foot not well cared for! All his toes tucking under and his big toe angled towards the others with the bone starting to stick out is indicative of wearing too small shoes. You need some wider shoes Brad and some toe spacers to help with the alignment of your toes!!!

  • I kneel down on my bedside like I’m praying and I get my wife or daughter to step on my feet with their heels facing the opposite direction

  • Excellent video. Deserves definitely more views. Feet are a major part in almost any sport or athletic competition. I myself do most of these excercises and I see major improvements in balance and stability.

  • I watch every video you guys make. even if its for problems I dont have yet!

    thanks boys, love the channel. keep up the good work:)

  • I’m a massage therapist in New York…great bodywork and vids, Adam ��!!
    One thing I’m wondering is why you’re not encouraging your clients to breathe through some of the painful aspects of your treatment lol? Wouldn’t that be beneficial to BOTH you and your client?

  • Please please please watch this and support me with my own idea in this video by giving me likes inorder for me to develope the idea more and more
    https://youtu.be/XZfIdi8kT6Y

  • Bob and Brad, will any of these exercises help with foot pain from sciatica? I have awful pain on the top of my left foot and sometimes in my big toe. From watching your videos, I understand it might come from problems with my L5. Any exercises or products that can help me? It’s hard to get away from that pain when it happens. I’m willing to try about anything for relief. Thank you for all your wonderful and informative videos. You two are the best!

  • I was clinically determined to have plantar fasciitis this past year and my physician didn’t advise me any natural home remedies. I was only suggested to take prescription drugs, use specific orthotics, and visit a particular podiatrist. Thankfully, I learned about this plantar fasciitis remedy, which enabled me to obtain the excellent results without needing to spend on expensive medicines. The easy way to research this guide is using Google. It calls Jacob Ballοycut
    good day

  • Orthotic Insoles worked well for me together with the addition of some of the exercises you showed in the video. Thank you for the information.

  • This is so me with the feet and hips. I had sore feet since my early 20s. Oh man I am coming to Dublin one day! I think Dublins where you are at! I want this so bad. My body needs you! Haha!

  • Dr.J
    I had the opportunity to professionally move the creator of aspartame (Dow chemical account) boyoboy are we getting screwed…

  • Another great video on injury caution. Love to get your opinon on Achilles problem. Been having problems for a while now. Comes and goes but the worst times is when I take a break from running.
    Do the same exercises that you showed in your video.
    After 30 years and passed the 50 mark I think me body is trying to tell something. Lol

  • Great suggestions! One more suggestion, which worked for me: wear soft sandals at home to allow your feet to recover after running.

  • I am so happy that I haven’t had a single recurrence of plantar fasciitis in over a year and a half, since I’ve lost 140 pounds. Pretty sure the weight loss helped that

  • This guys sounds just like my podiatrist!! My podiatrist would not give me a cortisone shot for plantar faciitis. He also told me not to spend $300+ for orthotics. Wearing barefoot shoes helped me build up my arch mucles, but I haven’t worn them awhile and, again have pain in my feet, knee and lower back. Time to get be to a steady diet of foot exercises and barefoot lifestyle!

  • There is no explanation of what the therapist is doing to the patient and why so it does not seem that helpful to me.i wish there was some explanations so I could learn something.

  • Dr. Bergman: How can I get an appointment to see you at your clinic. I would fly down to L.A or wherever you are located, for you to help correct my entire body, hip surgery pending, bunion on right foot, everything you have spoke about on the youtube video of Hip Problems and ignored causes. I have been to every chiropractor, physiotherapist, so called specialists, who don’t like a client (me) very knowledgeable on my body voices my opinion and what I think I know all these problems are from. Don’t believe me.. What does it cost to see you for a session or two….I can be reached at [email protected] gmail.com or tex/cell:1-778-678-7828. Everything you so is exactly what I know to be true…I don’t take drugs, smoke, or drink alcohol, and have lived a holistic healthy lifestyle… I always believed my body can heal itself…. People up here think I’m just a person with an attitude, (haha) and just want to put me on drugs like Lyrica, Gabepentin…no no no…. Regards, Krystalle LeBray from Victoria, B.C

  • Dear Bob and Brad, I am suffering terribly from Achilles tendonitis! Years ago when I was running I went thru a period of planters fasciitis and got over this… now i am years older. I have done the boot off and on, anti inflammatory meds, exercises with not much improvement. I have the rocking exercise equipment but the pain is so great that I can hardly do it. I am starting physical therapy next week. Help!

  • I swear I had foot pain that couldnt stand or sit but once I did this it is gone. Miracle worked for me…finally I did that worked

  • man i noticed that you no longer insert the muscle piscs that you worked on certain area, a lil bit sad because i love that one. regardless your video still amazing! keep em coming

  • I’m wheelchair bound due to spinal injuries to the lower back. I have chronic pain in my right heel. I wear diabetic shoes and insoles. I’ve had injections and physical therapy but nothing has helped. Any suggestions?

  • I get tingles from watching your vids, especially the foot therapy ones, and they’re not even asmr videos. Excellent content, as always! ��

  • There are several components to curing for plantar foot. One place I discovered that succeeds in merging these is the Natural Foot Wizard (google it if you’re interested) without a doubt the no.1 treatment i’ve heard of.Check out the super info.

  • here’s a few tips to try

    Test out one of the natural remedies for plantar foot. Something as simple as ginger root, which can be found at your local grocery shop, is a great anti-inflammatory. Ginger root is in a group of plants known as Cox inhibitors. This means they help inflammation naturally.

    Another good remedy for pain is Bromelain. Bromelain is an enzyme found in pineapples. If you drink the raw juice or eat raw pineapple, you can gt advantage from the properties of Bromelain. This is natural healing at its very best.

    (I learned these and more ideas from fergs foot formula site )

  • Wow, thank you for your videos! While recovering from a serious foot injury this has given me hope to keep moving forward to gain back health and mobility.

  • I have spent months researching into cures for plantar fasciitis and found an awesome resource at Natural Foot Wizard (google it if you’re interested)

  • Got that for 9 months, tried stretching, self massage, physio massage, mesotherapy, specific sole, shockwave, and a bunch of other stuff with no success, pain is still here ��
    But when i started back running, the pain has not increased (and during running i don’t feel it cause of the body heat i think?)
    Well anyway this is really a shitty injury!!

  • agree with Dino Lecture is great advice BUT hard to follow specific area being talked about
    when you cannot see the diagram of area being discussed. Camera Person?????!!!!!!

  • Please please please watch this and support me with my own idea in this video by giving me likes inorder for me to develope the idea more and more

  • When he dig his hand into the client’s hip
    Me: immediately pause and run to get some snacks and a drink. My movie time.. no one must disturb

  • Really excellent even for those without chronic foot pain. TY for the excellent video.

  • Adam, who are you trying to fool with your nice candle in the corner? LOL! We all know this isn’t a relaxation massage!! HAHAHA! Great job as always. So refreshing to have a therapist who addresses the whole body, not just the location of pain.

  • I’m studyin feet bones and now i know. Seriously did the this once wen i got up i felt lot better thats magic thank you team bob and brad

  • Had it earlier this year for trying to increase my training from 10k race to 22k race in a month. Needless to say, 19k training damaged something in my knee and gave me plantar fasciitis. I rested from running (not swimming) for 2-3 months and massaged my foot with a tennis ball. It worked great and haven’t felt any pain in about 6 months

  • Josh: I like rolling a ball under my foot as it feels nice.
    Heather: Here is a clear and concise anatomical explanation of why you should do it as a means of preventing plantar fasciitis.
    Josh (feeling both informed and thoroughly intellectually inferior): Thanks, Heather.

  • 9:30 Do it with your hand while keeping fingers of another hand on the fascia: as soon as you feel tension in the fascia, stop further stretching and hold for 30 seconds. Repeat few times.
    This works as treatment too.

  • agree with Dino Lecture is great advice BUT hard to follow specific area being talked about
    when you cannot see the diagram of area being discussed. Camera Person?????!!!!!!

  • It`s been a decade ever since I experienced plantar fasciitis. I felt hopeless about curing my condition. I was actually wrong about that since I found and tried out this plantar fasciitis treatment three weeks ago. I am now 100% pain-free. I still cannot imagine that I am cured. I already saved more than 100usd on acupuncture and during these occasions that means much to me.. I think Google is the best way to get this tip. People call it Jacob Ballοycut
    good day

  • My mom always said, “wiggle your toes, and walk barefoot every day, you’ll never have foot problems.” This she said as she wiggled her toes. She was right!

  • Alright the first stretch I honestly didn’t feel the stretch but as soon as I walked most of the tension in my foot was gone! THANK YOU!

  • I controversially found barefoot helped me loads and built up foot strength. With good stretches and using my vivobarefoots I have found it cleared my foot pain. All the supportive things weakened my feet and made it worst.

  • Miserable injury. Painful at night in bed. Tried all the cold cans of coke, golf balls etc. Went to see a physio and the only thing that worked and really was effective (is in the video), was proper stretching of the calf. Gave pretty immediate results once got onto that.

  • Check out my Experience with Chronic Pain after inadvertently overdosing on Oxycontin. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6hw37vMeGTc

  • I DONT KNOW A MAN WHO DOESNT LIKE HIGHheels on A WOMAN��������������SOME MAN NEVER SEE HIGHHEELS ON THEIR WIVES NO WONDER THE. MAN IS in a FANTASY with a woman

  • ORTHOTICS!!!! i heard him say, they make feet weaker, this has happened to my feet i am weaning off! but WHAT ABOUT that i have ONE LEG LONGER this i cant seem to wean off? with orthotics that pain in my cervical spine goes away, can LEG LENGTH BE CORRECTED? thank you Dr Bergman, i am trying to 5 Rythmns myself to wellness and i am the only one in the class with trainers i hate it!

  • Have had flat feet since being a kid. Also, born with a club foot and in the brace as a kid. My alignment is screwed up. Honestly, having a hard time with the idea that ligaments can be strengthened. No one, even my holistic doc believes this that I can find. They say the only way to tighten a ligament is with prolotherapy since they have no blood supply. I also did EVERY sing thing on the list and my bunion is still killing me and my pelvis is unstable. Good nutrition, exercise, rest, prayer, working the pump, and chiropractic care and after canceling my foot surgery, I bought flat tennis shoes you recommend to walk in and used them exclusively for 18 months and wore merrel “no-shoe” shoes the rest of the time. My knees and feet and pelvis are not changing for the better. Went back to toe separators and supports on my feet. Not good either. I am thinking it’s just a structural defect and a body full of loose ligaments. You don’t think ligaments can be genetically lax? ALL my joints are very flexible. Including the foot.

  • Oh my God. OMG I so thank you for this information. I just did a foot soak and the bottom of my feet looked grayish so I went to Youtube, because, you know you can find everything basically on Youtube and I just learned so much about my feet that I never knew. Of course, I realize the grayishness mostly is coming from poor circulation. I love high heels, but it hurts my calf, knees and thigh bones so I know I got to exercise these areas more and I am going through some therapy not due to an injury, but extremely too much manual work labor. I m also will do some detoxing and CLEAR THOSE ARTERIES. At least this is a start. Smile

  • Anything that I can do for plantars warts?I have several on both feet that make it impossible to walk correctly. They have caused other foot problems.

  • My wife had Plantar Fasciitis a couple of years ago (admittedly from increasing her distances too quickly). The pain went on for several months, she was advised to use a ‘Night Brace’. (Basically a plastic boot that hold the foot rigid). The problem was alleviated very quickly after this. The brace now sits in the wardrobe just in case the dreaded Plantar Fasciitis ever returns.

  • I do all these and love them, but walking barefoot outside is one of the best things you can do. Using your foot for its intended purpose.

  • John, I simply love to listen to your shows. You do make it all so easy! I would like to know who you may know and recommend as a practitioner in the Wilmington/ Raleigh NC area. Although a very pleasant thought, I just think Ca is a tad too far to go for weekly/bi-weekly treatment by you

  • I tend to get intense pain in my front part of the foot, the first 1/3 of the foot.
    Right in the middle.
    Feels like the bones in the front foot are made of pure pain!
    What is that condition and what is it called?

  • I’ve noticed I don’t get it when I train barefoot (muay thai) but when I run I get it even if its like 5-8 km, perhaps I need to get better shoes. But I do walk on my job 20 km +, every day, and after 7 years my pf got healed but then I got it on the other foot �� now I do a lot of stretching and kickboxing but towards the end of summer I’ll start running again.

  • Hi Dr. Bergban. Was wanting to get your input on my foot health. I sprained the top of the foot going into extreme plantar flexion when playing a sport. Ever since then it has been swollen. I wonder if I tore my inferior extensor retinaculum. No physical therapist has helped to eliminate my swelling and discomfort. Do you recommend I do anything to heal my foot? As a young person, I am soo longing for a healthy foot again!…

  • hi bob and brad you guys are so great to watch you both are so good together I love watching your videos and I have learned so many pain free solutions by watching your videos thanks again for all that you do ����

  • Adam, who are you trying to fool with your nice candle in the corner? LOL! We all know this isn’t a relaxation massage!! HAHAHA! Great job as always. So refreshing to have a therapist who addresses the whole body, not just the location of pain.

  • Great suggestions! One more suggestion, which worked for me: wear soft sandals at home to allow your feet to recover after running.

  • Just started having Plantar Fasciitis pain as I start a training for my next marathon. Is it safe to keep running while treating the condition? I only have a short 12 weeks before the race, and I want to avoid missing training if possible.

  • Dr John that’s extremely helpful. Thank you. Could you please expand on flat feet if you can. Both of my children has and my daughter who is 17 had her knee cap clipped out and when it happened she put it back in place. Please let me know what we can do if you can. Thank you appreciate. We’re in the UK.

  • Wow, thank you for your videos! While recovering from a serious foot injury this has given me hope to keep moving forward to gain back health and mobility.

  • This guy, in my opinion was one of the best patients you have had. He took the pain very well which made your job easier!!! Kudos to him!!!!

  • Really useful tips. Unfortunately I had treatment from an osteopath who wrenched the ankle so badly causing a syndesmotic sprain. I have been unable to run for a number of years and am now having an operation, so hopefully on the road to recovery, but prevention definitely better than “cure” in my case!

  • You are so good. It amazes me that you know that pain in the feet can be caused by an issue with the hip. It was obvious your client was in pain but he took it very well compared to others I’ve seen. You state that this was his 3rd session. I can’t imagine what the first two must have been like for him. You’re a marvel. I hope he doesn’t have to go thru too many more.

  • Shoes with a lot of heel drop were very good for my Achilles. I found out the reasoning behind shoe drop is that runners with calf pain or planter fasciitis benefit from more drop. However more drop can cause knee pain, so runners with knee pain should have less drop. The good thing is they tend to be mutually exclusive so if you suffer from knee problems you wont have calf/fascia problems. I think I read this in runner’s world. The New Balance 1400 is my racing flat of choice because it has 10mm of drop, usually flats are low drop.

  • The continual soreness nearly made me lose my mind. My disorder made me feel terrified and miserable. I discovered effective outcomes from trying out this particular plantar fasciitis treatment solution. The soreness was long gone in just a week of applying the treatment method! You can get this guide on Google. They call it Jacob Ballοycut

  • I had it on the left foot in 2005. Had an injection and started running too soon. Bad idea (the injection), the tissue teared, the foot became unstable. Had to have complex surgery and now run with 4 screws in the foot. Currently experiencing it on the right foot. Stretching, massaging with a baseball and taking sufficient rest between runs helps significantly.

  • Had it earlier this year for trying to increase my training from 10k race to 22k race in a month. Needless to say, 19k training damaged something in my knee and gave me plantar fasciitis. I rested from running (not swimming) for 2-3 months and massaged my foot with a tennis ball. It worked great and haven’t felt any pain in about 6 months

  • I have suffered plantar fasciitis for 10 years. I ran across a youtube that said use a timer on the straight leg calf stretch and again on the bent knee calf stretch, 2 minutes each. It’s easy enough to stretch for a bit and think you’re done, but using the timer helped lengthen the whole tow-to-knee chain. Now after 2 months I can walk again. I can think about training again. It’s wonderful.

  • I’m a paraplegic since 1 n half yr…..I’m walking vth support now….but my toes ankle n feet r not respond….can u plz suggest wat to do

  • Another excellent video! Unfortunately I’ve had it and all the advice you gave I’ve used! With the add on of insoles or heel cups, I used Enertor they got me through ironman lanza last year!

  • Wtf. Just was on a doctors visit two hours ago, because of pain in my feet when I wake up… And was diagnosed with Plantar faciitis. Are you guys in my head?

  • After having plantar fascitis for over a year, and finally recovered, Aside from stretching, massages and insole, I found the one thing that helped me the most was doing calf raises on a step daily. And the key to is to go down very slowly on one leg at the movement! the theory according to my physio was that it is the eccentric loading on the fascia that promotes repair!
    I highly recommend doing daily 3×10 calf raises, go up with 2 legs but down slowly with one, it is the downstroke that really counts.

  • growing up in detroit in the 60s my folks family physician was an old guy named ‘dr. bergman. he was an awesome doctor according to my mom. i don’t remember much about him but i wonder if u could be his grandson perhaps

  • Ball rolling, stretching etc is good for temporary relief but, as others also have mentioned in the comments, eccentric calf raises is very effective at actually improving the problematic tissue. This is also backed up by research. A good tip is to do the calf raise/lowering with both a straight knee, as well with a slightly bent knee. That way you’ll work both calf muscles.
    Google “Michael Rathleff” and you’ll find information. There are also some good visualization of exercises in this PDF (not in English but you can probably run it through Google translate):  https://docplayer.se/storage/24/4008671/1585174175/MGsrP1b7fyL0WvdAUpB_sw/4008671.pdf

  • Omg brad and Bob i tries the circle massage and pulling and in a few seconds it did fee lot better. My foot feel pain and when i walk on it it feels like a ball under my foot can you suggest a simple teqhnique please. Great stuff like it friendly enthastic team keep it up

  • I’m a Licensed Massage Therapist. I run, stretch, roll, receive massage. The important factor in treating Plantar Fasciitis is improving the ability to move the ankle joint. Dorsiflexion and extension. If the ankle joint is stiff it’ll steal movement from the plantar muscle. When the plantar muscle becomes overstretched, overused you will develop Plantar fasciitis. Runners take the time to prepare your body before you run. As well as doing body maintenance after you run. stretch, Roll, go for a massage!!! How does your car run when you fail to do the maintenance?!

  • Stretch your calves before every run and cycling session. 45 sec per leg, 3x. If you get a tear in your plantar fascia and have scar tissue, Extracorporeal Shock Wave Therapy is your best way to get back into running.

  • Another great video on injury caution. Love to get your opinon on Achilles problem. Been having problems for a while now. Comes and goes but the worst times is when I take a break from running.
    Do the same exercises that you showed in your video.
    After 30 years and passed the 50 mark I think me body is trying to tell something. Lol

  • Hey man, what kind of therapy is that? Im in another country and I want to get something similar but there’s too much “wooo” around here, what should I look for?

  • Been suffering for neck tightnes and tender muscles. And my face feels like its tight too. I want to heal this neck muscle problem ����

  • You are giving me hope! Question…I try walking barefoot but I have ankle impingement between the talus and fibula causing limited dorsiflexion. Will this resolve in its own even if the ligaments in the foot are very lax?

  • I can’t believe how immediately these stretches have improved my pain. I’ve had heel pain getting increasingly severe over the last few weeks as I’ve massively increased my daily step count each day during work. I’m usually in agony when I stand up getting out of bed in the morning but doing this the night before and then before getting out of bed has massively improved my pain.

  • I gonna see my physiotherapist this week. I have some pain in the morning and had complained of stiff lower calf 3 months ago. Thanks for making this video

  • I’ve had it last year and it was really frustrating. When it is a heavy one like mine shockwave in combination with exercises really helps. The exercises in this video needed to be done every day, especially the ball and stretches. I also did the exercise with picking up and setting down a bottle in front of me whilst standing on one toe. But as said, relax, progress slowely in miles in running and it will all help!

  • Got that for 9 months, tried stretching, self massage, physio massage, mesotherapy, specific sole, shockwave, and a bunch of other stuff with no success, pain is still here ��
    But when i started back running, the pain has not increased (and during running i don’t feel it cause of the body heat i think?)
    Well anyway this is really a shitty injury!!

  • Bob and Brad, will any of these exercises help with foot pain from sciatica? I have awful pain on the top of my left foot and sometimes in my big toe. From watching your videos, I understand it might come from problems with my L5. Any exercises or products that can help me? It’s hard to get away from that pain when it happens. I’m willing to try about anything for relief. Thank you for all your wonderful and informative videos. You two are the best!

  • Had this for the past 11 months in both feet! I’d definately reccommend sorting it as soon as you get it. The only thing I’ve found to help is to rest between excersizing. And running on fields feels way better than tarmac

  • Wtf. Just was on a doctors visit two hours ago, because of pain in my feet when I wake up… And was diagnosed with Plantar faciitis. Are you guys in my head?

  • Yep. Didn’t follow 10% rule and PF came on following a 10 mile run with hill attacks in the final 2 miles. Realised what it was and stopped running which I think stopped it becoming really acute pain, but it took a year of almost no running for the constant level 2 pain / dull throb to subside. Stretching, ice bottle rolling, hot water bottle in the morning all helped, but I think 4 sessions with a physio and shockwave therapy really made the difference in the end. I was also driving a lot for work and constantly on/off the clutch probably didn’t help. Switching to an automatic at the same time as physio might have helped too.

  • Wish I saw your video s about year ago had to have neck and spin surgery was told if I didn’t have it I would be in a wheelchair in 2 months hurts worse and my Drs put me on all thoses drugs too

  • Youre awesome mate just love your videos hopefully one day i can visit you to fix my broken body lol hopefully I can tolerate the pain well lol

  • What exactly is wrong with people these days. We get barefoot shoes now. That pain wud goes with in days. No strech needed seriously these shoes 1st create problems and then we try to solve them i hate these shoes now. Barefoot is best any day. Ur calf and feet muscles are weak/tight becoz u dnt use them. I swear to god no one suggest barefoot shoes all they say is strech and find a new shoes. God bless our generation

  • I’ve been suffering with plantar fasciitis for almost a year now. I’ve tried almost all the things you mentioned. The one thing that has helped me the most is, ironically, barefoot walking. I had many people tell me not to walk barefoot, but I started to notice that my feet felt better when I wasn’t working and putting on shoes. I finally feel like I’m starting to heal now that I spend much more time barefoot and in barefoot style shoes. Maybe it won’t work for everyone, but it works for me!

  • The Dreaded Thumbs getting the poor Fella squirming as his Hip flexors and instep get a good going over! Great Content as ever Adam….keep up the sterling work my man!

  • Alright the first stretch I honestly didn’t feel the stretch but as soon as I walked most of the tension in my foot was gone! THANK YOU!

  • man i noticed that you no longer insert the muscle piscs that you worked on certain area, a lil bit sad because i love that one. regardless your video still amazing! keep em coming

  • I kneel down on my bedside like I’m praying and I get my wife or daughter to step on my feet with their heels facing the opposite direction

  • When I was running my right feet stuck in mud and bend and I developed a Lumb on the right side of feet. Its just a little but smaller than a golf boll size. Its pain when I walk. What is it? Is it something serious?

  • I used tips from your other plantar fasciitis videos and rolling my foot on a frozen water bottle to fix a two year stint of foot pain! Thanks for making these videos!
