Top 10 Shoes to prevent Plantar Fasciitis

ANSWER: There aren’t any.plantar never again

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.

Check my free download of “How to Walk Correctly” and I will also send you videos on what incorrect and correct walking strides look like. Exercises of videos of how plantar fasiciits is caused and how to do exercises to prevent and rehabilitate injuries.  [Answer Revealed in the Free Download here].

The best shoes that help with plantar fasciitis relief, however got to learn my technique first. A shoe alone will not help you. Technique comes first.

Bad Shoes

As previously stated in Part 5 it is best to be able to feel the ground and [Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] your feet. In the waitress world there is a popular shoe that most wear that is like a clog. The sole is very hard and the foot cannot[Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] into the ground. Many waitresses and servers have some kind of low back, hip, or leg issue. When I have the waitresses change their shoes to a more flexible shoe their issues went away within a week. Binding your feet or too cushy of a sole does not help foot health. Flexing and [Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] your feet is best for circulation and structure strengthening.

Ideal Shoes

I like to wear Sketchers, a sporty good looking shoe. The sole is very thin and I am able to really feel the ground. Another Shoe company with a thin sole is Vibram, I like to call their shoes “Monkey Feet”, and they look like gloves for your feet. This is the best shoe scenario because one will ultimately feel every piece of the ground and your feet will become very strong. However one must start out slow because walking correctly at first is very hard. Pace yourself and work the walking series slowly.
vibram

When I first started the process I was a competitive swimmer for many years. After that I moved to sports like running and softball. I developed very bad shin splints which is the direct result of walking on the outside of your feet. It took me 2 years to be able to Walk Correctly around Green Lake in Seattle which is about 3 miles long. I slowly built up to being able to walk that far and breaking the bad habit of walking is mentally tough as well.

New Shoes

If you are going to start walking correctly you are going to have to get some new shoes. Attempting to walk correctly with your old shoes that are worn out is very difficult. As the shoes wear out naturally the wear will continually get worse and your walking technique also gets slowly worse. If you walk on the outside or your feet the heel and outside edge becomes more and more worn and attempting to hit the inside foot becomes harder to do because it feels like you have a large bump in your shoe which make walking correctly harder to maintain.
I have been able to observe my shoes lasting much longer now because I work my feet evenly on both sides. So not only will walking correctly help your leg joint health but will also help you from buying more shoes.

Tip: Walking barefoot over rocks is a great way to massage and [Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] your feet.

One leg is shorter/longer than the other

Often when one leg is shorter than the other it is because that person leans on the shorter leg more than the other. They do this because in the past they have sprained or broken something on the opposite leg. So they will walk on the healthy leg to relieve pressure on the injured leg. After the injury heals if they do not equally waskeleton posture copylk on both legs they will continually lean on the “healthy leg”.

When you walk on one leg the foot has to point outwards more to support all the weight. This makes the outside of the leg tighter which will pull the hips backward and shift the pelvis to the injured leg side. This will affect the foundation of the spine and it will start to curve causing scoliosis. The spine will continue to curve all the way up the neck and cause cervical neck pain. So if you have a chronic neck pain on the right side of the neck then you are[Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] (which would be the short leg). When one leg is shorter than the other it best just to concentrate on this leg. Step Point[Answer Revealed in the Free Download here] is best to lengthen a short leg.

Chronic Fatigue – “It’s all up to me!”

Jacob Caldwell, LMP
Medical Intuitive & Massage Therapist
Steps to Enlightenment

Being an Aquarius I can relate to this one, rest is the key, running around a lot can cause a lot of stress on your adrenals. Taking time to rest and receive a massage can rejuvenate yourself to take on more. Even God rested on the 7th day. Something I have noticed with people who do the-run-around-thing a lot is that their Strength Chakra or Solar Plexus is running to high. A common trait with these people is that they think it is all up to them and they have to do it because no one else can. With every issue there is a Chakra that is too high and a Chakra that is too low. Most of the time the Heart Chakra is too low. The Heart is about expressing your vulnerability and asking for what you need.
So if no one can hear what you want, then it will be up to you to do everything yourself. So to balance this scenario, Ask for help!.
In the end you will have more people around you to help you with what you need and as a result you will run around less and have more energy at the end of the day.

How often to get a treatment

A Medical Intuitive Session is best at least once a month for ongoing treatment.Twice a month is good for those that really want to get to the issue..
In regards to massage, it all depends on the nature of your injury or the state of health you would like to maintain.
Once a month…is for those who like to prevent injuries and maintain current health.
Twice a month…is for those who want to catch up to chronic pain and take care of old or new occurring injuries.
Four times a month…is for those who are in the middle of injury treatment and have constant pain.
Eight times a month…is for those that are in a debilitating injury and are in severe pain.
***This of course is merely a suggestion and appropriate consultation with your medical professional is recommended.
