Plantar Fasciitis: By disrupting the formations of calcification between the plantar ligament and the anterior calcaneus, stimulation of healing occurs when the ligament is not tight. By relieving the tension on the ligament prevents the tearing of the ligament from the bone when walking and therefor arrests the development of future inflammation and pain which is in effect plantar fasciitis.
