Arctic Blast

If you haven't changed your shoes lately, check Arctic Blast Review how many miles you've done since the last pair of shoes was bought. Most shoes break down after 300 miles (or 480 kilometers) of training, depending on your weight and that they were new to begin with. Also check that the shoes fit properly and they are the right type of support for your foot. Some shoes today are designed to control foot motion while others are designed to allow for more foot motion. Being fit by a professional can make all the difference. One other home treatment that is particularly effective is "golf ball therapy" - and I don't mean working on your swing. Take a golf ball and put it by your bed. In the morning before you stand up on your feet (this part is critical), roll your foot on the golf ball from heel to toe for about 3 to 5 minutes, spending extra time on any tender spots. It's critical to do this before standing up because the tissues of the foot will tend to contract and stiffen up during the night after the day's stresses have accumulated. Therefore, the foot will "more arched" in the morning. Standing up on the foot flattens the arch and creates a large stretching force on the plantar fascia which, if already inflamed or injured, will be irritated again and the cycle will start over again. Hip strengthening and balance exercises will also be helpful to promote increased rotational control in the hip and thereby any unnecessary stress from being transmitted through into the foot. Tight calves should also be addressed with consistent stretching to allow the ankle to move freely and avoid overloading the plantar fascia. This happens when the calves are tight because the foot will pronate to make up for motion that is limited by tight calves. Keeping your head in an awkward position, such as pushing forward with your ears in front of your shoulders for a long period of time can make your neck hurt. That's what many people who have neck problems are doing; this is according to senior physical therapist, Joanne Griffin at an impatient headache treatment therapist at the New England Center for Headache at the Greenwich Hospital in Connecticut.
