    What does your Plantar Fasciitis feel like?

I've had foot pain for over a year, but only for a few weeks did I experience pain first thing in the morning that most ppl with plantar fasciitis have.

    Myofascial Release

    I've just had an amazing breakthrough in my treatment for plantar fasciitis and I'd like to spread the good word about it.
