PLANTAR FASCIA STRENGTHENING
The Fasciitis Fighter was designed by a physiotherapist to remove the time and hassle with having to regularly roll up a towel to the correct shape to perform specific plantar fascia strengthening exercises.
Rathleff et al 2014 showed superior result applying a specific plantar fascia loading exercise with the use of a rolled up towel to just stretching.
Using the Fasciitis Fighter the big toe is placed into an extended position to place some stretch on the plantar fascia (using the windlass mechanism). In this position calf raises are then performed which places a controlled load through the plantar fascia tissue. This progressive loading over at least twelve weeks may help tissue capacity and load tolerance in the plantar fascia which may help pain levels in persistent plantar fasciitis.
The Fasciitis Fighter should always be used under the guidance of your health care professional as individual loading parameters will vary.
