I developed plantar fasciitis and ( I think) runner's knee, long before I ever started on SP ( work as a cleaner, so I'm on my feet and up and down stairs all day). The foot stretch described here, does work, but you have to keep at it, at least 3 times a day, for a long time. I also found that wearing Skechers Shape ups helped, as the arch support presses right up into your arch, plus, the shape of them also takes the pressure off your heel, which is what becomes agony with PF. The runner's knee only really started to go away once I'd lost 20+ pounds with SP. I've read that every pound of your weight amounts to 3 lbs on your knees, more if you're going up stairs. So now I've taken 66 pounds off my knees!
