  • Heel pain

    I have some pretty bad heel pain mostly in my right foot but a little also in my left foot. I'm not sure if it's plantar fascisitis or a heel spur or what. I am re-starting ttapp (doing the 60 day challenge) and am wondering if this will help my feet or not. Especially since KLT puts all my weight onto my heels and thus hurts while I'm doing it. Any recommendations? Any success stories in this helping to heal feet?

    I just ordered the Foot & Hand DVD and hoping that helps my left heel. I'm also currently going to physical therapy for the heel pain. In the past, getting rid of trigger points in the back of my knees helped and did for years, but the past 2 yrs, it hasn't. I know I have a lot of fascia, muscle imbalances, as well as tightness and I'm an overly stressed out person. I'm hoping T-Tapp can help bring some balance back into my body so I can process stresses better, heal quicker, recover more quickly from workouts and other things like that.

      I have that DVD and even if I haven't learnt the moves (only some of the finger moves) by heart, I can tell you that I have understood that our fingers and feet are so important and linked to our brain. I hope that you will experience the same as me processing stresses better. I weaned off antideps from mid-Feb until mid-March and I am stabilizing a lot thanks to T-tapp.

    Toughiemama, it's true that you will be shifting weight into heels before pushing knees out in KLT. That helps stabilize the ankle and distribute the weight more evenly on the feet. You also might try lightly pressing your ball joints. Don't shift weight to big toes, though.

    I agree the Finger and Foot Fitness dvd is wonderful! You should also get a seated workout if you don't have one. There will be days you know you should move but you might need to not push too hard with your heel pain and that's when those seated workouts will save you!

    Also be sure to keep your core and ribs up. It really does affect the feet, too!

    Instead of pushing the knees out, once you get set up, shift weight into heels and then shift weight off big toes. You can add more insensity later as your heel pain diminished.

      Thank you for the response! That helps! And I’m hoping to be able to get the finger and foot dvd soon.

        Like other T-Tappers here, I love Finger & Foot Fitness DVD, specially when I have pains and inflammation going on. Meanwhile, check out these T-Tapp Tuesday videos:
