Cooper Manning Relays Advice About Foot Injury To Eli

Here’s a report from USA Today that details how Cooper Manning received about 25 phone calls from people offering different remedies for plantar fasciitis, the article is here.

Here is the one Eli went with:

It figures the remedy the Giants quarterback embraced to ease the soft-tissue injury was a suggestion from his former University of Mississippi trainer Tim Mullins to wear cowboy boots that elevated his heel.

Cooper said of the referrals:

“I got about 25 phone calls from people going, ‘You don’t know me. But I’m an attorney in the building here. I’m 75 years old, an avid tennis player and I’ve had plantar fasciitis.

‘I got 25 of those with all different remedies.

I’m sure he’s getting plenty of medical attention with the right folks in New York. But I did pass on all these miracle cures myself and my dad (Archie) got. Eli took the cowboy boot suggestion.”

Whatever works I guess — I’ve heard massaging the arch of the foot with a tennis ball works, orthotics, gentle stretching, etc.

Hey Cooper — here is my two cents. I would mention trying Yoga as well. Virtually all of the lower body stretches would work to repair, contain, and prevent the injury… especially downward dog and the very similar dolphin pose. I could go on about this topic as I’ve been know to do, so I won’t.

For now let’s just hope the cowboy boots work.
