Long time ago Socrates compared healthy feet with quality of life when he famously said, "When one's feet hurt, one hurts all over." His observation sounds  true even nowadays.

Your feet are complex structures. In the process of supporting your body and keeping you moving, they might cause pain in other parts of your body, including your lower back.

When the body’s support structure is weakened by age, occupation, poor posture, overall fitness, weight or other factors, the body works much harder to keep the feet, knees, hip and lower back functioning. And this can cause back pain and problems.

If your lower back pain is worse in one pair of shoes than another, or caused by walking barefoot, your feet might be the problem—especially if you have flat feet. One of the common foot problems connected to lower back pain is Plantar Fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis is also one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves inflammation of a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes (plantar fascia).

Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near the heel that usually occurs with your first steps in the morning. As you get up and move, the pain normally decreases, but it might return after long periods of standing or when you stand up after sitting.

The Rossiter stretching techniques can effectively relieve your pain. Working with feet is both rewarding and painful. But there are occasions when the work is positively “yummy.” For people who suffered with foot pain for years, it will take some time to get rid of it. Long standing pain is deeply embedded and can take several sessions to work it out with Rossiter. But the sooner you address a problem, the better. This way you can prevent your pain from becoming chronic. Also, it is very beneficial to use Rossiter stretching workouts as a maintenance program to keep healthy, loose connective tissue throughout your feet and body, preventing chronic tightness and pain.
