Is Plantar Fasciitis Slowing You Down?
It’s a great time to take the load off your feet, keep fit, and start some active recovery.
Just find a pool deep enough for one of our buoyancy belts to keep your head above water, keep your feet off the bottom of the pool, and help put yourself on the way to recovery.
You can run, jog, or walk at whatever pace you choose and let your Plantar Fasciitis take the day off. The hydrostatic pressure of the water around your body provides your heart and lungs a perfect environment for your fitness program, while providing resistance that varies with your speed of movement through the water.
The feeling of being suspended in the water not only provides you with a great time to relax, but aids the healing process. A research project by NASA found the hydrostatic pressure of the water on your body, when up to your neck in water, increases the healing properties of deep tissue response ten times more than on land.
Seems a good time to give your Plantar Fasciitis a rest, up your fitness level and give your deep tissue response some encouragement. For information and training techniques, download our free workout guide here.
