Dr. Lavender is testing for muscles "shut down" that may be causing Brad's plantar fasciitis.
Have you experienced excruciating pain in your heel or arch of your foot as you walk? Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation in the thick band of tissue or "fascia" on the base of the foot between the heel and the toes.
Likely contributors to Plantar Fasciitis are excess weight, new exercise programs that suddenly increases in intensity, standing several hours a day, uneven leg lengths and altered walking pattern, calf-ankle-foot muscles that have been "shut down", worn out shoes with thin soles and little arch support. Plantar Fasciitis is a more common experience with women. Tight fitting shoes and high heels cause the muscles in the toes to become weaker and reduce their flexibility. All of the feet and ankle muscles are important in the support of the arch and bone structures of the feet. When muscles become weak or are no longer working properly, injuries are more likely to occur and pain will increase from inflammation from tears of over-stretched muscles.
