    Think it has been pretty comprehensive shown it is not possible to "release' the plantar fascia.. or any other fascia for that matter. All the same, there are some good tips here. thanks for posting Craig.

    Appears to be a knock-off of Active Isolated Stretching developed by Aaron Mattes.
    Still, a very good video.

    How do you define "release"? These practitioners seem to be very good at mobilizing the fascia, breaking down adhesions, improving ROM and decreasing pain. Worked wonders for my rotator cuff injury.

    Ill make a bet the people in this video are Chiro's right? Also I bet you can do a FRR course overseas right? Also I bet its expensive right? I went to an Active Release Techniques course in Canada years ago..... How does this differ? Same stuff... http://www.activerelease.com/ There is a course coming up in Dee Why Sydney for only $2600AUD!

    Buy the book on amazon.com and learn it yourself. Spending the money allows you to be listed as a "certified" practitioner on their website. It's a good business to rename techniques to make them as your own and have seminars.

    Dear Team

    I am amazed that a man using his thumb can penetrate down some 2.5-3.0cms through the fat pad and magically release the plantar fascia!
    WOW

    try dissecting the fat pad. you need at least 5-6 scalpel blades to cut it off.

    it takes multiples of your body weight yet he can use his thumb to cure it... prey tell

    Also he said there was a tear present so what the hell is he doing. don't tell me he repaired it.

    After 40 years in the game, I am still learning rot!

    Looks like fraud to me

    Always gives me a great laugh as well. A group I am in just finished some serious data collection on intrasubstance fascia tears and let me tell you when the rope is frayed I wouldn't be swinging off it!
