What is Lorem Ipsum?

Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Why do we use it?

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using 'Content here, content here', making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for 'lorem ipsum' will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like).

Where does it come from?

Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure Latin words, consectetur, from a Lorem Ipsum passage, and going through the cites of the word in classical literature, discovered the undoubtable source. Lorem Ipsum comes from sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 of "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" (The Extremes of Good and Evil) by Cicero, written in 45 BC. This book is a treatise on the theory of ethics, very popular during the Renaissance. The first line of Lorem Ipsum, "Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet..", comes from a line in section 1.10.32.

The standard chunk of Lorem Ipsum used since the 1500s is reproduced below for those interested. Sections 1.10.32 and 1.10.33 from "de Finibus Bonorum et Malorum" by Cicero are also reproduced in their exact original form, accompanied by English versions from the 1914 translation by H. Rackham.

Heel pain with painful first step is it planatar fasciitis?


Heel pain is an annoying, common problem that can be caused by a variety of conditions. One of the most common causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia – a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, connecting your heel bone to your toes.


Plantar fasciitis can cause a lot of discomfort, especially when you take your first step in the morning, or after sitting for a while.


So, how can you tell if your heel pain is caused by plantar fasciitis? To start, let’s look at the symptoms of plantar fasciitis. The most common symptom of plantar fasciitis is a sharp, stabbing pain in the heel or arch of the foot. This pain is usually worse when you take your first step in the morning or after sitting for a while. You may also feel a dull, aching pain throughout the day.


Other symptoms of plantar fasciitis can include swelling in the heel or arch, tenderness when you press on the heel or arch, and difficulty walking or standing for long periods of time.


If you have any of these symptoms and suspect you have plantar fasciitis, it is important to seek medical attention. At Therapyworks, we have successfully treated many patients with Plantar Fasciitis. We can perform an examination and image your foot to see if there’s inflammation and where. We can also observe your gait and conduct a gait assessment to look at where and how your foot bears weight. If your diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, we can recommend a number of treatments, including stretching exercises, wearing supportive shoes, taping your foot, taking anti-inflammatory medications, or wearing a night splint. We also have a treatment specifically for chronic tendon issues called shockwave therapy.


It’s important to note that plantar fasciitis is a condition that takes time to heal. If you don’t take steps to address the underlying cause of your heel pain, it may recur. Therefore, it’s important to follow your treatment plan and do the recommended exercises and treatments. With the right treatment at the right time, you can reduce your pain and get back to living an active and healthy lifestyle. Call us now on 01446 794166 to get specialist advice. ,
