Feels Pretty Good!

That's right. After one A.R.T. treatment my plantar fasciitis infested foot feels much, much better. I don't know why the mainstream medical establishment doesn't know about this stuff. It flat out works. Works wonders in fact.

The Doc told me to stop using the foot brace. She said it would work against what she just did to my foot. So last night, for the first time in quite a while, I slept without it. Guess what. I woke up this morning and my foot felt almost good as new. It boggles my mind.

I have another appointment early next week and they gave me some stretches to do. The stretches are active isolated stretches. Instead of holding a stretch for 15-30 seconds like most people recommend, you hold it for 2 seconds, release and hold again for 2 seconds and on and on like that until you reach the prescribed amount. I've heard about this before and once you read the literature it makes sense.

It amazes me just how "stuck in the dark ages" most of the mainstream is. No matter if it's nutrition, injury rehab or just how and when to stretch, the mainstream is usually just flat out wrong. It makes you wonder...

  1. Great! I'm glad it worked for you. I know how frustrating it is to get out of bed in the morning, the pain can be crippling at times. I'm relieved mine is better now too.
