Default Plantar Fasciitis

I have had Plantar Fasciitis for many months. I have gone to a podiatrist twice for a shot and although it helped a little it is only a short fix. He recommended physical therapy but unfortunately his physical therapist only works 8 to 4 and I work 9 to 5 daily. I spent almost $400.00 on shoes that he recommended with no remorse as they are wonderful but they are not curing on ailment. I ice and stretch and do all the things to try to make my foot better. While looking for any solution I received an email from Groupon which I haven't used for years. I found a foot spa and decided to try it. I went for a one hour "foot reflexology"...this young girl was ruthless..she worked my feet for 45 minutes and then did an awesome message over my clothes for 15 minutes. I have not had any pain since...woke up the next morning which was Thu with no pain ( knock on wood)...I signed up for the 4 month club the price is less then my copay for physical therapy...I highly recommend this place and their hours are great...taichispa.com

I feel your pain.....literally! I’ve had this since March and very frustrated. I had walked at least 3- 4 miles a day before this happened. Now my ass is even getting bigger!! Over 10 years ago I fell off my bike and broke my hip. I had surgery that evening to put 3 screws in my hip. For 8 weeks I was on crutches while it mended. That looking back was a breeze to this crap. If you could please share where you are having your massage.

The instinct is to cushion the heel because that is where the pain is. The real solution is to raise the arch.

I suffered most of the summer with this. Third time in eleven years that we’ve been here. Rolled frozen water bottles, special new sneakers, etc., couldn’t shake it.
The best results I got were from a special pair of socks I bought
SB Sox bought on amazon, 2 pairs $19.00.
for Plantar fasciitis
I was border line L-XL. I bought the smaller size
I used them only during my activities. The improvement
started within three days. . . . I also used the heal inserts
I get at Walmart for $6 a pair . . . Good luck

Thank you all for your suggestions. This condition has been incredibly painful!!!!
It actually started down the sciatic nerve and eventually found it's way to my heel.
Stretching has helped and lidocaine/ibuprofen works wonders.

Was a runner and developed PF. Tried every remedy known to man. I was virtually crippled by the pain. Finally consulted a well renowned podiatrist. Said he could make shoe inserts that would cost me several hundred $s or could go to a shoe store and buy a pair of Spenco inserts for about $20.

Did the latter and never experienced PS again- nearly 30 years now. They last forever(almost)

Thank you all for your advice and I am going to try everything that you have recommended. I have Vionic sneakers and OOFOS flip flops...I just ordered OOFOS sneakers also as I said I work on my feet all day. I am going back to the Foot Reflexology tonight. I just cannot have this pain again I am willing to try anything. Again thank you, this is what I needed...serious recommendations from those that feel my pain.
