Quoted by Business Insider

Hi everyone,

Just wanted to share that one of my articles got quoted on Business Insider. One of the leading websites on pretty much everything related to business.

Why would a business website feature information on tendonitis?

Well, users of my eBook and video products range from professional bodybuilders to housewives to business executives. The fact is, tendon pain can affect literally anyone. And one of the most frequent problems people encounter nowadays is thumb tendon pain from using Blackberries, smart phones and the like. I know, this doesn’t have anything to do with foot or ankle tendon/fascia problems. Sorry! ūüôā But tendons are tendons no matter what part of the body they’re in, so the principles are the same. Check out the article here:

Peroneus brevis and peroneus longus tendonitis

If you order Target Plantar Fasciitis and Posterior Tibial Tendonitis, you’ll see that it comes with a video. The exercises I cover in both are for the plantar fascia, the achilles tendon, and the posterior tibialis tendon (or post tibial tendon). One thing that wasn’t included was what to do for the peroneal tendons (which attach to the peroneus brevis and peroneus longus muscles), which are located on the outside of the foot, opposite from the post tibial tendon.

You don’t hear about it a lot, not like the Achilles tendon problems, but the fact is that quite a few people fall prey to peroneal tendon pain every year. And it can be really difficult to rehab, since the¬†peroneal tendons are¬†smaller and more delicate than the other major tendons in the ankle and foot. So not including the peroneus sisters was an oversight on my part, and I recently received an email from a somewhat dissatisfied customer who suffers from peroneal tendon pain. In order to make things right with him, I have just finished a video that will be available to anyone who purchases Target Plantar Fasciitis and Posterior Tibial Tendonitis (from this website; the videos are NOT included in the Kindle version of the book) starting today. And for anyone who has bought it in the past and wants to see the new exercise, just send me an email at the address listed in the book and I’ll hook you up.

Along the same lines, if there’s something else that you’d like to see in the book, make a comment here and let me know.

Do you really have plantar fasciitis?

Here’s the text of a recent article that I published. If you’re unsure whether you might really have plantar fasciitis or not, have a quick read:

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common problems that affect runners, jumpers and anyone who is on his or her feet all day. Bureau of Labor statistics say that tens of thousands of people suffer from plantar fasciitis and similar Repetitive Stress Injuries (RSIs) every year.

Any kind of “itis” (like plantar fasciitis) actually has a medically precise meaning, which is “inflammation”. Here are some quick and easy tests you can run to see whether you have plantar fasciitis, or if it’s really a different condition like plantar fasciosis (the “osis” here indicates degeneration of the fascia).

1. Did your pain stem from some injury or trauma? Or did it develop slowly over time? For example, if you jumped down from something that was a little too high and then felt a sudden pain in the bottom of your foot, you may have plantar fasciitis. But if you’re a runner and started noticing a slight pain that has gradually gotten worse or worse, then probably you’re suffering from plantar fasciosis, not plantar fasciitis.

2. Have you “fixed” your pain once (or twice‚Ķor three times), only to have it rear its ugly head again in a few weeks or months? Inflammation is generally a short-term response to some sort of injury or infection in the body. If you get sick or hurt yourself for some reason, inflammation can help your body heal itself. But once that job is finished, the inflammation should go away. (Remember the last time you got a splinter in your finger? Once you got it out, it didn’t take long for the pain to fade away, did it?)

If you have taken ibuprofin or other pain relief medication, given the problem area a rest, thought that it was healed…only to have the pain reoccur once you started back with your activity, chances are that you do not have plantar fasciitis.

3. Has the pain been there consistently for more than just a few weeks? Similar to the above point, if you suffer from long-term pain in one or the other of your plantar fascia, and especially if you have not injured or gotten an infection there, chances are pretty good that you do have plantar fasciosis rather than plantar fasciitis.

4. Is there any swelling in the area? Is it red? Hot to the touch? These are three out of the four stereotypical symptoms of inflammation, and people have known about them since at least the time of ancient Greece. If the painful area isn’t hot, or red, or swollen, it’s almost impossible that it could be inflamed. Once again, this means you don’t have plantar fasciitis. Instead, the odds are overwhelmingly that it’s plantar fasciosis, which is going to require a completely different approach to make it heal.

Of course, quite a few legitimate cases of plantar fasciitis do exist, but people (and this includes most doctors) have a tendency to confuse plantar fasciitis with plantar fasciosis. Take a few moments to think about the points raised in this article, then decide for yourself which one you have.

The New E-Book Is Here!

This website is going to be a companion to Target Tendonitis, which provides cutting-edge treatment options for suffers of tendon pain. ¬†This blog is going to focus on plantar fasciitis and posterior tibial tendonitis. ¬†One thing to realize is that if you have had either of these conditions for more than approximately two weeks, the chances are very good that you actually have plantar fasciosis or posterior tibial tendonosis instead of either of the “~itises”.

If this is the case, then all the NSAIDs, icing and cortisone shots in the world aren’t going to do you much good. ¬†But don’t worry – I have finished my new ebook, Target Plantar Fasciitis and Posterior Tibial Tendonitis which, despite the horrific title, is guaranteed to help you get rid of your fascia or tendon pain in record time or 100% of your money will be refunded. I have an extremely low refund rate on my other ebooks, and this is due to exactly one reason – my techniques work for almost everybody. So if you’ve been experiencing pain in either your plantar fascia or your post tibial tendon, go ahead and order the ebook and give my methods a shot.
