Friction massage is a therapy that is usually applied together with other treatments for heel spur and plantar fasciitis, like physiotherapy. With friction massage, a deep tissue massage is being applied right on the heelspur location and the surrounding tissue. Goal is to loosen up the tendon tissue and to break up the calcium deposits. Also blood circulation is stimulized so that the heelspur actually heels instead of staying chronical.
The first few minutes of the treatment are usually a bit painfull, but this diminishes after a few minutes.
