2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By L. Jantzen on March 4 2010
Format: Paperback
This book describes a whole range of stretches and strengtheners, and the collection of actions worked for me immediately. I try to stay active, and different ideas are given here to do that and avoid re-injury. So far so good. I'm really glad the book has all the ideas for healing listed in one place. Very convenient and quite effective. I showed the book to the podiatrist I've been seeing, and she agreed with the book's actions.

If you have beat up feet, especially plantar fasciitis, give this one a try.

One of the two best sources for heel relief Sept. 21 2008
By Matthew J. Armbruster - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Well this is a great resource for one of the most vexing running injuries I have ever had. The information contained here will definatly help put anyone on the road,(the long road) to recovery. I know many non-runners who work on their feet, teachers, nurses even coaches and non-atheletes who would beneifet from this text, in its entireity.
I also recommend more the book, "The 5 Mintue Plantar Fasciitis Cure", which is more to the salient point of the singular componet of relief.
Please note WHATEVER you do or try you MUST BE VIGILANT in your approach, this injury requies long term rehab, 6 months to life would be about right.

You have to strengthen your calves May 11 2011
By Christian Robles - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book gives you many things you can do to relief Plantar Fasciitis.
You can do many, or you can do only a few, but you have to do something to get rid of it.
I also read "The 5 minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution", which in my opinion is the key to successfully get over the heel pain. I have tried many things but the one that really feels to be helping is the 5-min Solution.

UPDATE (Feb/12/2012):
In my pursue of getting rid of the pain, I still continued to play basketball, and training my calves to be in better shape for a championship I'm in.
Have to clearly state that it helped a lot. So I believe now the writer is absolutely right in his recommendations.
After I train my calves with weight training (in a gym), I can barely feel any pain on the same day and days after. In the same way after playing a basketball game, the pain is gone. So the strength training is a MUST for anybody who suffers from plantar fasciitis.

Nothing new...for me Jan. 11 2009
By J. Davenport - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have recently been diagnosed or think you have PF, then this is an excellent resource that consolidates a ton of the information, guidance and reality of this vexing problem. I have been dealing with PF for over a year now and have gone through PT, doctors and podiatrists to aid in my recovery - thus, none of the information in this book was new to me. I have spent many hours researching PF prior to seeking medical advice.

I wished the book contained more information about products the author recommends for (at least some of) the 30 points of relief. I can appreciate that listing products dates a publication but at least it gives you a starting point of self-help remedies when you're 'new' the heel and PF problems.

I deducted one star because I think it's over-priced. The book is a quick read and good reference though.

Not a good value Jan. 7 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The description says 103 pages, but I went ahead and purchased it because it was so highly rated, figuring 100 good pages would be worth the $9.95.

By the time you take out the table of contents, overall intro, and the ending pages of very general testimonials, you get maybe 70 pages of info that you could easily get by Googling plantar fasciitis. The less than 10 photos and two illustrations are tiny on the Kindle and are of such poor quality, that when you enlarge to the Kindle screen are too blurry to be of any real use. I have both Fire and a regular Kindle and it was the same for both. These graphics were important as they were supposed to illustrate described exercises. There were other things the author described as helpful that would have benefited from illustrations.

Overall, I spent 1/2 an hour going through it and it ended. It's not much more than a self-published pamphlet. I got a refund.

Good info but... Feb. 10 2009
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book has good information in it but if you have a computer and can search with skill most of it has been read. This gives good information for learning to deal with PF. The only thing that has really helped me is buying a pair of MBT shoes. IMMEDIATELY my heel pain was alleviated and I could walk with no pain for extended periods of time. It has helped with the pain when I am at rest also. I do not have the searing pain while sitting at the desk or getting up and walking. By all means, read the book to learn about the injury and therapies but invest in a pair of MBT shoes. You won't regret it.
