I have had chronic low-grade plantar fasciosis in my left foot for over 10 years. I have attached pictures where you can see the relative lack of muscle development in my left foot as compared to my right foot. My right foot is broader and more toned. You can see that the arch on my left foot is flatter and that some of my left toes are limp.
I beleive that minimalist shoes are the way to go, although my left foot is still too dysfunctional for that to be a good choice at all times. But I defintiley will not wear shoes with a narrow toe box or a heel rise. I recently discovered the Gokhale method and I think that it might be what will finally help rid me of my plantar fasciitis. I feel my left foot contacting the ground in a more functional way as I practice my beginner's (by no means perfect) version of glidewalking.
My question is, is there some element of the Gokhale method that I should be specifically focusing on to get my foot in better shape? I know there is an advanced technique to be used during glidewalking that involves using the feet a certain way (gripping the ground or something?), but I don't know much about it. I know there are many exercises listed in the book, but I am looking for that "every step is a rep" approach more so than isolated exercises. I would also love to hear any other testimonials of success or any other tips. Thanks!
