From the Author
Here's what's in the book...
- Chapter 1 "What the Heck is Plantar Fasciitis?" will tell you what the plantar fascia is, where it is, what it's made of, and what it does. Did you know the plantar fascia actually consists of three distinct parts? (Be sure your treatment is directed at the most important one!) Did you know the plantar fascia works to support your arch through the windlass mechanism? Also in this chapter, you will learn that there is NO inflammation in your foot when you have plantar fasciitis. Hard to believe? Not after you read my summary of all the published studies that have taken a piece of the plantar fascia from sufferers and examined it under a microscope.
So if they don't find any inflammation, then what do they find? You'll know exactly after reading this chapter. No wonder treatments aimed at getting rid of inflammation don't work for long...
- Chapter 2 "How Long Does Plantar Fasciitis Last?" discusses the natural history of plantar fasciitis, in other words, how long does it usually last if we don't treat it OR if we treat it conservatively? Readers will be interested to know, that in many cases, plantar fasciitis gets better on it's own, in time, regardless of how it's treated. So how long does it normally last? This chapter will tell you.
- Chapter 3 is titled "The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution". So if it is true that most people with plantar fasciitis gets better no matter how you treat it, why do we need a 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution? Well, while the majority of people with plantar fasciitis do indeed get better in time, not everyone does. Luckily, however, controlled studies show that for long-term sufferers (3 years or more) some treatments work better than others - like the 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution! With it taking a mere five minutes a day to do, and having shown to have a 94% success rate in randomized controlled trials, its well worth a try! And if it doesn't work - simply return the book!
- Chapter 4 is titled"Measuring Your Progress". Here you'll learn what changes to look out for as your plantar fasciitis gets better - sometimes it's hard to see progress when your foot has been hurting for so long. Included is a quick test you can take once a week to track the progress of your now healing plantar fascia.
- Chapter 5 is called "How to Keep Plantar Fasciitis From Ever Coming Back". After your plantar fasciitis is gone, you'll want to do what you can to keep from getting it again - which is the whole purpose of this chapter. It's here the book discusses the risk factors for plantar fasciitis. For example, having an inflexible ankle can increase your chances of getting plantar fasciitis. No need to worry though, the book will show you two stretches to make your ankle more flexible, tell you exactly how long to hold the stretch, and how many times a day you need to do it. Problem solved!
- Chapter 6 is "Other Options for Eliminating Plantar Fasciitis". While the book centers around a five minute home program that has been clinically shown to be 94% successful at decreasing pain in people who suffer from chronic plantar fasciitis, the fact of the matter is that NO treatment works for everyone, all the time. Therefore, the purpose of this chapter is to provide the reader with a list of alternative treatments to consider that have been tested in published controlled trials.
- Chapter 7 is "Putting It All Together". This is the last chapter in the book and summarizes all the principles in the book. While the 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution is effective in the majority of cases, it can't help you if you don't do it. To help keep you consistent from day-to-day, I've included an 8-week exercise log to chart your progress.
