Back at the end of June we finally had chance to do a show on Plantar Fasciitis with Inside Brant host Ted Lehman. Interestingly he was not only the host but the subject of the show, or rather his feet were. In this episode get to review his physical exam, X-rays, video gait analysis and demonstrate the functional instability that caused his chronic heel pain. We also review his treatment plan of good structural foot wear, combined with custom functional orthotic devices. The most important point of all this is that he clearly understands the source of his problem and as a result is an active participant in healing himself. No pun intended Ted!!.
