Got heel pain? Achilles tendinitis usually resolves in a few weeks on its own – but what do you do when it lingers?

While I’ve never been lucky enough to deal with Achilles tendinitis personally, I have had my fair share of plantar fasciitis and ankle issues. I used to wear custom orthotics and the most supportive shoes you could buy — but now, I can easily go miles in my super-thin barefoot sandals and not worry about foot pain.

There are many many steps between the two and that’s exactly what I’m sharing in today’s episode.

So whether your heel pain developed from more time barefoot at home over the last year, overtraining, or you just woke up with it one day – today’s episode is for you!
