Good day everyone this is Jacob Caldwell massage therapist here in Seattle WA.
I have written a book on “How to Walk Correctly. It comes from my experience as a massage therapist since 2002.
I am a problem solver and like to assist people in making health and recovery simple.
I have witnessed many leg and back ailments, and I have found that most people are creating their own chronic pain issues. Barring a fall, injury, or car accident, most pain is due to posture and how you walk.
I have had my own issues of plantar fasciitis, shin splints, low back pain, and knee pain from a work injury, which then turned into how I walked, which then the pain persisted and grew for decades until I could no longer run and my knee would give out without warning.
Upon being told I needed orthotics and maybe surgery someday, this inspired me to look at myself and see what I could do about it.
I walk a lot, so I had lots of time to figure this out. After 9 months I pretty much solved my own crippling shin splint issue and systematically over the years have solved all the rest of my leg issues.
I did this with no help or special products. I found that most leg and back pain is about how your foot hits the ground. If you follow my special technique on how to walk correctly, I think this can work for you and you solve your chronic pain.
I have found the low back pain is created like this, toes pointed out. The more they are pointed out the more severe your low back pain is.
If you walk on the sides of your feet, look and the bottom outside edge of you shoe for the wear marks, this is how shin splints are created.
If you have falling arches that creates things like plantar fasciitis this is due to not opening and flexing your foot.
I have written a book called “How to Walk Correctly”, and this helps people get started. And I have created a video series to demonstrate in motion what bad and correct walking technique looks like. And I am also offering a 1 on 1 service, which requires you to video your walking technique and I will be able to help you with the details to get the technique right. I have done this because people have tried the technique but have not done it correct enough for the healing and body pain to resolve.
What we are doing is attempting to change a habit and sometimes it takes a 3rd party to see you from a distance for things to resolve. It is tough to see yourself walk. And when you do the “How to Walk Correctly” technique you may be using muscles that you have never used before, so it feels awkward and people are not sure they are doing it right. If it does feel awkward and doesn’t hurt, then it is likely you are doing it right. That is why I would like to help you confirm if you are doing right or not. So, stick me and follow me through the series so we can resolve your pain together without extra product tools, special shoes, prevent surgery and keep you out of the wheel chair.
Since I am a Massage Therapist I can offer this book and video series as an Online Continuing Education Class for Health Practitioners. So, if you are a health practitioner or you know of one. Look for me or ask me how to get credit for reading this information and applying it to your practice and you can receive CEU’s.
Plantar Fasciitis is caused by not opening and closing your foot when you walk. Before your heel hits the ground you should open your foot, like opening your hand before you catch a ball, and then grip the ground with your foot. In a walking stride, when your foot is directly below you is when you are gripping the ground.
A lack of not opening and closing your foot is precisely how plantar fasciitis is caused.
If you have had a hip, knee, or foot injury. It is likely you have also lost the range of motion in your ankle and the flexibility in your plantar muscles. This lack of movement is caused because the body is protecting the injury. One is not able to put your full weight on the injury so you will hobble along on the other healthy leg to not disturb the injured leg. So your foot and ankle will lock up to protect the injury. I have seen this a lot with sport related injuries and lingering chronic injuries with professional athletes, they may get the rehab, but…
…After the injury has healed, you may be still be walking injured. One has to know where your injury is and once the inflammation and pain has gone away then you need to flex the injury. One can be injured and may take weeks or months to recover. In that time you may have formed a habit to not walk on the injured leg. In this time your plantar muscles have hardened. If you had an injury on one leg, it is likely your weight has shifted to the side of that injured leg. This will lead to low back pain on the same side as that leg, nerve pain that runs down the outside part of the leg, knee pain, or pain on the outside of the ankle.
For rehabilitation of the plantar fasciitis and rehabilitation for an injury it is imperative to open and close the plantar muscles and stretch and flex the full range of motion of the ankle. You can’t have a loose and limber hip, knee, or low back if your ankle and plantar muscles are tight. If you foot is tight your hip will be equally tight.
When I go around the web and see the top ten lists of best shoes for plantar fasciitis I just see shoe sales. They are trying to make shoes for better heel striking. If you check my book “How to Walk Correctly” I believe I make a great case that most foot and leg injuries are due to a poor walking stride techniques. I can explain that every injury is posture related and a walking technique related. By using my walking technique I have solved all these issues myself. I have had plantar fasciitis, low back pain, shin splints, knee, and hip pain. When you apply my walking technique you will get an instant relief, however, it is breaking a habit but after a few years I have solved them all. Which makes me beyond confident to be telling you if you want to be pain-free my technique when applied can help you. There is no secret to the technique because if you look down you can figure it out. I am merely linking things like not flexing your right big toe may cause neck pain on your left side. So flexing your toe may resolve your neck pain. Many practitioners do not link this together as the distance is to too far apart to be related. But if you have a house with a crooked window because the foundation has sunk….what would be the best fix?
When running you are supposed to be not hitting your heel anyways. The running stride is actually shorter than the walking stride. When walking, your stride, when measured should be longer than your running stride. When running you should be on the top 3/4 of your foot. [Video Heel Strike] Hitting your heel slows you down and jams your hip.

I used to have low back pain. Due to a knee injury when I was 19, I shifted my weight to the right side and this caused chronic right side low back pain. I pulled this muscle often.
As a Massage Therapist, with the volume of clients I have seen and with my own experience, Low Back Pain is caused by your feet pointed outwards. The more severe they are pointed outwards the more severe the pain.
Try standing up and keep your back straight, point your toes outward, watch how you will fall backwards. If you walk like this then to keep from falling backwards you will bend forward at the mid-back and your head will shoot forward. I walked around like this for a long time. I also over exaggerated putting my shoulders back to offset the slumping forward. When you do this your hips jet forward, this also creates low back pain. When you are falling backwards, because you have your toes out, the back of your hips fall downward and the front of your hips rotates up. This overstretches you low back and this is what causes the pain.
So to solve low back pain I pointed my toes [Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] and then I noticed I don’t fall backwards if my back is straight. I did not have to put my shoulders back because I am not hunching forward. My hips fall into line and my low back pain has been alleviated.
Now walking incorrectly has become a habit, and now walking correctly is a new habit. Sometimes I fall into the old habit and notice my low back start to hurt, so then I look down and see that my toes are pointed outward. I then point my toes [Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] and the pain goes away.
So no ice, special shoes, ointments, or any other tools to solve low back pain. It is all posture technique which just focuses on the feet. No back pain relief products here, it’s all posture technique, not due to a lack of a particular product.

I was a competitive swimmer and then transitioned into running sports like softball and ultimate Frisbee. I had always been a decent runner but by my late 20’s I had crippling shin splints. Just one softball game and I am hobbling back to my car. I was told by coaches to ice them, then stretch them, get new shoes, get arch supports, then was told I need orthotics….blah blah blah. If a pain keeps coming back, then the above therapeutic suggestions DO NOT WORK!
I found it is technique on how you walk. Shin splints are created by walking on the outside edges of your feet. I watched how I walked and discovered a new technique. I started using this technique and by next season I had no more shin splints and I have never had them again. I believe their is only one way to get rid of shin splints and I have cracked the code.
So don’t deal with shin splints, manage shin splints, avoid shin splints, or just stop running or walking. How long does it take? 1. You need to stop walking on the outside edges of your feet. 2. Walk on [Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] of your feet. I have pictures and videos on to use this one exercise to alleviate shin splints.
