This is Fournier's gangrene. Many people have been requesting this one!
Ok let's look at this photo. What you are looking at is a man's abdomen/ genital area that has undergone multiple surgeries to remove dead tissue in order to save his life. How the hell does this happen you ask? It all starts with an injury to the area. It can be very small, in this case just a small boil. The bacteria then enters the tissue under the skin, basically spreading its way between the layers and killing everything in its path. It is a type of necrotizing fasciitis or flesh eating bacteria. This can happen in a totally healthy individual if a really strong, nasty bacteria enters their body but most of the time this occurs in men who are older with some kind of disease or deficiency to help them heal correctly like diabetes or alcoholism- or they are immunocompromised. In this case the bacteria may not be so bad but it can spread like wildfire because the body can't stop it. Cases of Fournier gangrene are very dangerous and are a surgical emergency. In the surgery they remove all of the layers of the dead tissue the bacteria has destroyed including the skin of the penis and the scrotum. This is called debridement and as you can see a LOT of skin has been removed from this man. In up to 40% of these cases the patients die due to complications associated with either the bacteria getting into their blood supply causing sepsis and complications related to such intense surgeries.

Gangrene of a diabetic foot that got infected over time!
The photo shows wet gangrene after progression from a dry form in a diabetic patient. This can be very serious and potentially life-threatening condition, leading to sepsis and death if not treated quickly with an amputation.
We all know how a long-term untreated diabetes can cause pretty nasty complication.
People with diabetes are at high risk of developing gangrene (commonly the dry form without pus) due to the fact that high blood sugar levels damages the nerves, particularly those of the feet, which makes it easier for a patient to injure himself without realizing. It also damages blood vessels, restricting the blood supply to the feet, tissues are deprived of oxygen, thus causing the cells to die. The poor circulation to the area leads to decreased WBCs (the infection-fighting cells) reaching to the area and infection can develop.

✨PLANTAR FASCIITIS - strengthening✨
Last post!! Hammer in the first 3 and this should come last to help increase strength and stability of the plantar fascia 💪
To increase intensity, add a towel roll under the toes during heel raises. This will place the plantar fascia on increased stretch as the big toe extends at the top of the heel raise.
CAUTION: Make sure you have mobilized the big toe to increase the extension mobility with the previous videos prior to adding this progression! (Found in Tuesday's video!)
🔶 HEEL RAISES 🔶
Be sure the maintain ankle alignment and big toe extension appropriately by maintaining the majority of the weight over the ball of the foot under the big toe.
Also! When you maintain alignment, you properly fire the fibularis longus (aka - peroneus longus) along the outside of the lower leg. This muscle wraps from the outside of the leg (on the fibula) to the base of the 1st metatarsal (or the ball of the foot under the big toe). It also helps to support the arch, so it's important to focus on this ankle alignment when performing heel raises.
