List of Plantar Fasciitis Stretches & Exercises

Plantar Fasciitis is a painful foot condition caused by the inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot. Planta fasciitis pain is often felt in the heel of the foot.

This page lists a variety of plantar fasciitis stretches & exercises used by martial arts students. These stretches & exercises are used by martial artists to reduce the potential for plantar fasciitis injuries (which can occur due to the kicking, rapid movements and jumping involved in martial arts training). If you are experiencing foot pain, please see a doctor in order to get an accurate diagnosis and potential treatment options.

All stretches and exercises should be supervised by a trained martial arts instructor in order to ensure the proper technique is utilized. For additional martial arts stretches targeting other areas of the body, please visit the main Martial Arts Stretches page.
