A member asked:
can weakened soleus muscle cause achilles/heel pain and maybe plantar fasciitis? if so, what is the best way to strengthen it?

Tight Soleus: More likely due to tight gastrocnemius and/or Soleus muscle. Stretching exercises to make these more flexible would be a great help in addition to wearing more supportive shoes and inserts.
