Heel and Foot Pain Treatment

Typical Treatment: Rehab exercises to strengthen the foot, calf stretching, night splints, ice/heat/stim.

Dr. Josh Bross’ Take

Why do we want to stretch the calf so much? The injury usually happened because it was stretched too much. Makes no sense to me! We should concentrate on removing scar tissue, decreasing inflammation, and strengthening the arch.
