You don’t need to stretch your calves if you have plantar fasciitis.

I know this goes against everything you’ve probably heard about foot pain, but today’s episode will help you understand why it’s true.

Stretching your calves may temporarily relieve pain, but it doesn’t actually resolve the underlying cause.

When it comes to custom orthotics, plantar fasciitis (and the knee and back pain that come with it) – I’ve been there!

And while I needed the custom orthotics for a few months, I now prefer barefoot and am able to go all day in shoes with zero support without pain.

So if you have foot pain of any type – today’s episode is 100% for you.
