I had my first bout with plantar fasciitis back when I was playing on the national team. But this injury tends to be one that recurs and I found myself fighting it yet again recently. It is a tough injury to resolve and there are several schools of thought about what is the best way to combat it.
Back when I was playing, tape and orthotics were the answer. But a new minimalist movement says that all that arch support can be detrimental to one's arches and that the answer is actually less support, not more.
Here are my thoughts regarding my experience with the injury and some of the information I came across about the minimalist movement in my research about how to combat plantar fasciitis.
