PF caused by gait?

My right heel started hurting on the very outside, but only when I tilted my foot to the side. I could walk and run (9 miles a week) without any pain. When I started to develop a heel spur I went to see the first podiatrist. He showed me the now too…Continue

Going barefoot actually helping? 15 Replies

Everyone recommends never going barefoot if you have PF. However, I find that the only time I am pain-free, or nearly so, is going barefoot. Any kind of shoe makes the pain worse. When I do wear shoes, the recommended type (elevated heel, lots of…Continue

blogger who calls himself "Angry Orthopod" 29 Replies

His blog is well worth reading.  I've been trying to find an answer to plantar fasciitis for 2 years, and what he says in his article about plantar fasciitis  makes more sense than anything else I've heard.  I'm not saying this to promote him; in…Continue

Running with Plantar Fasciitis 49 Replies

I believe I have PF, but have not been to a doctor.  I am an avid runner and am wondering how long I would have to stop running for PF to get better.  Are there any other runners out there that took time off to let it heal, and if so, what kind of…Continue

PF caused by gait?

My right heel started hurting on the very outside, but only when I tilted my foot to the side. I could walk and run (9 miles a week) without any pain.

Hello everyone,I am hoping for some advice please.I've had PF for over two years now in my right foot. I got it through running. Over the last two years I have tried everything to cure/ease the pain, smiliar to everyone else. I am now at the point where my consultant surgeon has agreed to release the plantar. This is what I've wanted all along but had to exhaust all other options before invasive surgery, I guess because of potential complications. I have a few questions which I'm hoping someone…See More
