Maddie is a recreational runner who has had bilateral plantar fasciitis for over 5 years. She has faced debilitating symptoms including intense pain, pins and needles and burning sensations which dramatically altered her social life. Cooking, shopping, walking the dogs and playing with her son were sometimes ceased because the pain was so bad. Despite periods of time not running, the pain continued.
Maddie shares her newfound improvement after actively researching pain science and implementing exercises such as mindfulness, deep breathing and mantras into her regular routine. She talks about the sudden change of symptoms, the relevance of heightened awareness to an injury and her new understanding of having a flareup.
Listen to this episode to gain insight into the bio-psycho-social side of pain and the practical tips you can make to enhance your recovery.
