Does anyone suffer from Plantar Fasciatis?

Question by Me, Myself & I: Does anyone suffer from Plantar Fasciatis?
I have had Plantar Fasciatis in one foot for a few years now. I can only wear sneakers or a good support shoe. My doctor told me if I don’t do the stretching exercises he recommened, my foot will never get better. He told me to buy Spenco orthodic supports for my shoes. Does wearing these type of shoe supports really help relieve the heel pain?

My running partner had plantar fasciatiis. She got custom-made insoles and cortisone shots. You do have to stretch the bottom of your feet and wear appropriate footwear.

    The support for your arch is the most important thing – not the brand. Your doctor may choose them for any number of reasons like durability which I can not speak to.
    There could also be more going on like body alignment being off which will effect the feet because they are what support us. So I would recomend checking in with a chiropractor as a preventive measure.

    bonus info –
    Much pain is from muscles below is an example of what may help (based on headaches).
    Begin with a couple swigs of molasses or a couple of bananas (natural muscle relaxers) daily – magnesium (which regulates many things in the body) and potassium (a needed building block for muscles).
    Drink at least 1/2 gallons of water per day. Running a body low on water is like running a car low on oil is the analogy the head of neurology at UCDavis told my husband about 10 years ago.

    Now to the cause – muscles – your back, neck shoulders and head have tender spots. They are knots in the fibers of the muscles called trigger points. It makes the muscles tight which makes them press on nerves and other things causing the pain.

    The cure – start with a professional massage, (if this does not do it you probably need a chiropractor as well) you will also want to go back over any place you can get to 6-12 times per session up to 6 times per day rubbing (or lightly scratching on your head) every where that is tender until the knots go away. Press up under the edge of the skull (to get to those muscles).

    For more information read The Trigger Point Therapy Workbook by Davies. It teaches what to do and where the pain comes from.
