Having tendonitis and plantar fasciitis is not usually part of a bigger disease problem.

But it can be part of a bigger structural problem.

In other words, your body is not integrated in terms of is muscles and skeleton, and you are injuring yourself as a result.

There are a number of ways to approach taking care of this.

Conventionally, see a physical medicine and rehabilitation doctor.

Get the correct body therapies and this is a long term approach.

But you will be less likely to hurt yourself or stress your structure.

PM&R doctors are now plentiful and specialize in manual medicine, including sports medicine in many cases.
