In the past I have had problems with plantara fasciatis including pain in my hamstring and bottom. After a visit with the physical therapist, it seems that the current pain is nerve relate. It can be sharp and shooting in the hamstring and then the heel of my foot. Sometimes just in the heel. It seems to be aggravated by bending movements to the right. The PT has me 1.not bending over, 2.doing an exercise where I lay on the floor and arch my back and 3.another one swinging my leg off the side of a stair. I began reading your book today and am not sure I am really on the right track. I would like to get better as I can no longer run and at times walking is extremely painful. I am grateful for any advice you have.
