A load management strategy is an essential part of the treatment plan for Plantar Fasciitis. This ensures an initial reduction in load and a gradual increase in load as the recovery begins.
Change or reduction in activities can be very important. We may switch a runner to a few sessions of deep water running to reduce load, or for other clients increase activity to help reduce load through weight loss. For those clients unable to avoid load at work, we may focus on reducing load in activities outside of work.
