Can’t touch your toes? Do you have heel pain? A common cause to this restriction and pain is tension in the plantar flexors. The Gastrocnemius (calf muscles) as well as the Plantar Fascia can cause movement dysfunction and muscular chain tightness. A simple drill to use to release this tension and improve your pain and movement quality is the Plantar Fascia Trigger Point Release as well as foam rolling of the calf muscle group.
