weak grip

Why does my pain keep coming back? :(

WHY, WHY, WHY does my pain keep coming back? 

I go to my doctor and get pain medications yet the pain returns.  I go to a health care practitioner and feel somewhat better, get a standard protocol for certain exercises, or some other treatment, then my pain returns. 

I go to a MELT class (a self massage class using foam rollers and ball) and the pain returns.  (See this link)  http://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/02/arts/a-class-in-the-melt-method-of-body-work.html?src=me&module=Ribbon&version=origin&region=Header&action=click&contentCollection=Most%20Emailed&pgtype=article

What is the problem?

Probably an old injury or a bad habit of movement.  What to do? 

To help the headache, strengthen the muscles which lift and support the shoulder blades;  that will take strain off the other shoulder blade muscles which connect to the head and cause the headache.

To help the foot pain, have your physical therapist stretch the heel bone away from the ankle bones to take pressure off the plantar fascia.
