Plantar Fasciitis, Tendonitis Test
This free, one-minute test will show you what type of plantar fascia or tendon pain you have, and what to do about it.
(A note before you get started: If you have been diagnosed with a bone spur that is causing plantar fascia pain, you can stop right here. You need to see a doctor and nothing on this site is going to be able to help much. Sorry.
If not, maybe my ebook and video can help you. Go ahead and take the test.)
Does the area where you have pain look red?
Is the area hot to the touch?
Think back to the first time you noticed the pain. Was there a specific injury or trauma that caused it?
How did the pain come on?
A. Quickly (developed in hours or days)
B. Slowly (consistently got worse over weeks or months)
Is there noticeable swelling in the painful area?
The pain was "fixed" once...
A. ...and went away.
B. ...and came back again later.
The pain is noticeable...
A. ...most of the time, regardless of activity.
B. ...only when I do certain movements or activities.
Now take a look at your results. If you have mostly A answers, you very likely have regular fasciitis/tendonitis, and do NOT need to order my book. A regimen of NSAIDs, rest and aggressive icing treatment should put you back on track. Click here for some specific advice.
If you answered mostly B, then it is likely that you have chronic or long-term fasciitis/tendonitis (otherwise known as fasciosis/tendonosis). This is no longer simple inflammation, but an actual degeneration of the fascia or tendon, and you should order my book for specific recommendations on how to get rid of it.
