Your Cairns Podiatrist Keeping your Feet Fighting Fit

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common conditions we see here at FNQ Podiatry and Orthotics Cairns. Anybody who has experienced this condition knows just how painful, debilitating and slow to recover it can be. While having a customised Cairns podiatrist treatment plan tailored to your specific risk factors is vital to treatment success, one treatment which really does make your break your success is baseline strength. 

The fasciitis fighter is a new tool to our clinic and is designed as a strength trainer for the feet. As surprising as it may seem, there are 10 intrinsic muscles within each foot alone, which is quite significant given the foot is a small structure in comparison to other body parts. The intrinsic muscles are responsible for stablising the foot and supporting the arches to maintain an appropriate foot structure. Weakness through the intrinsic muscles, significantly increases the strain placed on the plantar fascia to compensate for the lack of stability throughout functional movements. This is where the Fasciitis fighter comes into play. 

The fasciitis fighter is a unique product, used to perform evidence based high load strength training exercises. This simple active approach may help pain levels and improve the load tolerance of the plantar fascia tissue. 

Combining an effective strengthening protocol into your treatment plan can improve results and decrease the time you’re sidelined from those activities you love.
