High load strength training is a evidence based active approach focused on strengthening while placing some load on the plantar fascia tissue and calf muscles. This exercise performed over a three month period or more may help the plantar fascia tolerate the load of day to day activities and improve pain levels in persistent plantar fasciitis.
The Fasciitis Fighter is a product that helps you effectively complete this specific strengthening program. It allows you to consistently complete the strengthening exercise without the hassle of having to roll up a towel.
