Great Information Sources on Plantar Fasciitis

Great Information Sources on Plantar Fasciitis  

Sure plantarfasciitis-help is the most extensive and authoritative repository of PF wisdom, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t other cool and useful places to go. Our associated PF Facebook page is a useful information station, but Facebook also has forums dedicated specifically to person-to-person information exchange. In these forums, where it’s mostly non-expert plantar fasciitis sufferers talking to each other, one has to be aware that some opinions and recommendations would not be endorsed by medical experts, but it’s just good to hear the experiences of others, and talk to them about it. AND, of course, there are some non-Facebook Web sites where plantar fasciitis fact pages or news items help fill out the latest understanding of this pathology.

Plantar Fasciitis Facebook Forums

PLANTAR FASCIITIS SUPPORT GROUP on Facebook had 384 members as of August 5, and keeps adding. You do have to apply for membership, but it’s fast and simple.

A second Facebook membership PF-support group is Plantar Fasciitis help and support. Also has good intra-member exchange of questions and answers.

PLANTAR FASCIITIS: Plantar Fasciitis – The Plantar Fasciitis Community Will Help is a great fasciitis Forum.

PLANTAR FASCIITIS: Another, a Facebook page: The Plantar Fasciitis Survival Guide.

Other Resources

Newswise, a science wire service, is a great place to find medical news on plantar fasciitis, gout or whatever. You can go to their “Medical News'”section for the latest, but best, I think, is to plug your key word into their Search function.

The Journal of Musculoskeletal Medicine is a treasure trove of information on gout, plantar fasciitis and other topics to anyone who cares to use the resource. All you have to do is sign up – and it’s free – for access. You can search the archives, and you can also opt to receive periodic emails highlighting articles on new research and publications.

Plantar Fasciitis Sufferer Wins the Super Bowl

Oh how even the most mighty are brought low by plantar fasciitis! And oh how current knowledge of treatment can raise them back up again. Denver Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning had to leave the field on November 8, 2015, due to a plantar fasciita tear. Manning had been suffering from plantar fasciitis prior to the tear. When one has plantar fasciitis, stressing the plantar fascia is more likely to produce a tear. After missing a couple of games, however, he was not only back on the field but WON THE FRIGGING SUPER BOWL! Is that an inspiring message for us all, or what! Like the giants of sports, all of us plantar fasciitis suffers have the potential to reclaim our lives.
