Rethink Treatment of Common Foot Conditions

Strengthening & Training for Improved Outcomes

Courtney Conley, DC

We don’t tell patients with neck pain to wear a brace for 10 years...

So why should someone with plantar fasciitis spend a decade in orthotics?

We need to train and strengthen the foot just like any other part of the body.

The abductor hallucis contributes to the stability of the foot during walking – but its importance is rarely recognized. In this short video, Dr. Courtney Conley discusses the bottom of the foot and how we can approach our treatment plans for foot pain.

“The foot is like anything else in the body. If we train it – it will get stronger. And as far as I’m concerned, it’s the most important part of our body to be strengthened.” – Dr. Courtney Conley
