[*]The advice about pole weapons seems good--I've long found that the best way to connect hands and belly. I have a long staff but have not gotten outdoors to use it--the weather has been horridly cold.



Hey, klonk. I should have been more descriptive, maybe. I was suggesting an exercise that has you holding the implement as you would a sword. Switching hands from front to rear and such.

Was also going to suggest making a practice 'bow' from a 5.5' - 6' length of 3/4" cpvc plumbing tubing and a bootlace, or whatever, so you can work your draw.


Oh. :-[ I get it now. Sword and bow are surely definitive of how warriors use the midsection. Good thinking! (I'm not doing much of that at the present. ;) )

Plantar fasciitis

Postby klonk on Thu Jan 12, 2017 7:08 am

Could someone pick up on Taiwandeutscher's question about

May I ask another question on recovery?
What to do to get ridd of plantarfasziitis, and infection of the foot tendon, with hurting heel?


I don't know anything except its reputation as a stubborn and damnably painful condition, but somebody here must know something.

Update on me: I'm off the oxy. My belly still hurts, but screw that--the stuff messes with my head. Somebody needs to come up with a drug that kills the pain without sending you off to a fake-ass nirvana.

That's good news, klonk. Hope everything goes well.

Aber, one problem is that he wrote the condition in German :) Here's an English description.

http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/tc/p ... overview#1

It's also called "policeman's heel" and why cops were called "flatfoots."

If you need help, pm Ken Fish, he does or used to do orthotic inserts for shoes to help alleviate the condition. There was a thread recently where shoe inserts were addressed, some prescription, some off-the-shelf, such as Superfeet.

Afa pain, double up on the Ibuprofen for a while. Aspirin might be bad for your gut.
