This seated towel stretch helps lengthen the muscles along the bottom of your foot and the plantar fascia. Strengthening your feet and keeping them flexible is essential to reducing PF pain.
Others argue that the plantar fascia is so tough, its capacity to stretch is limited to less that one percent. Recent research by Rathleff et al. (2015) suggests that high load strength training may speed up recovery from plantar fasciitis more quickly than stretching alone.
Plantar fasciits stretches are important for the flexibility and range of motion of the lower leg, ankle and foot muscles. Good flexibility around the ankle and foot allows for unrestricted, pain free movement of the ankle, foot and arch.
