For the one and a half years I have been riding my EUCs on a daily basis, varying distances but almost always at least 25-30 minutes per day. 6 Months ago I started to get some pain in my right foot that was exemplary for plantar fasciitis (inflamed tissue in the back heel). I tried lots of things to get rid of the issue but not much seemed to help, until I was forced to stop riding my EUCs for a longer period (about 4 weeks now) and suddenly the plantar fasciitis got better, a lot better. One of these days though, I would like to get back on to my EUC again, but I'm scared that the plantar fasciitis will come back as I'm assuming this was a result of riding my EUC in first place. Therefore I'm wondering, is this a common issue long term riders get when riding the EUC too much? Is this maybe a result of me having my feet weirdly on the pedals? Just FYI, I'm riding a InMotion V8 and a Ninebot One - although I don't believe this to be very relevant.
So, to hear it from this forum and to gather from some youtubes I've watched, riding an EUC can make your leg muscles sore, give you bruises, and make your feet or back or core ache, or some combination of any of the above. Do any of you do warm-up exercises or stretches? Or cool-down ones? Or strength-building exercises just so you can use your EUC more comfortably? Would you recommend any? If you used to get sore but don't any more, what are you doing differently now?
