Plantar Fasciitis, the Minimalist Movement and Volleyball

By September 30, 2011

Follow me on:

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.

Workplace repetitive motion injuries in the U.S. are very complicated as they increase mainly by some frequent sources. The other terms of repetitive motion injuries are repetitive injuries or collective distress chaos. It happens by doing the same work constantly for a long era. Take for example, if a job requires a vigorous physical exertion in an itchy or abnormal pose, and if it is a customary part of doing the job, it can escort to these kinds of injuries. There are two kinds of repetitive motion injuries, they are known as tendinitis and bursitis. Away from these two mentioned types of repetitive motion injuries, there are other ordinary problems such as, muscle stiffness problems, back pain problems and hernias.
