Mastering the Plantar Aponeurosis (Fascia)

Understanding Anatomy, Function, Pathology & Treatment

The plantar fascia, or plantar aponeurosis, forms part of the deep fascia of the foot and provides a strong mechanical linkage between the calcaneus and the toes. Often associated with the windlass mechanism and tension based stability of the medial arch, the plantar fascia's role in foot stability extends much further than just the arch. Join Functional Podiatrist and Human Movement Specialist, Dr Emily Splichal, as she takes a deep dive into the anatomy, composition, function and pathology of the plantar fascia. Reverse windlass, tie-bar mechanism, plantar plate and calcaneal periosteum are just a few of the concepts and structures that will be reviewed.
