Achilles Tendonitis vs. Plantar Fasciitis 8 Replies

I'm pretty sure that I have either plantar fasciitis or achilles tendonitis. My first step in the morning is painful with the pain reducing thereafter, which I know is a classic PF symptom. However, the pain is in my heel - in the area just "up"…Continue

Surgical shoe vs. The Boot 9 Replies

To give you a little bit of history…. Have been dealing with PF for about 2yrs now. Did all of the pre-surgical stuff to get it to stop hurting (PT, ultrasound, injections, inserts, etc) before I had surgery on my right foot last August. Have loved…Continue

Over 3 years with Plantar Fasciitis

I have had plantar Fasciitis now over 3 years. I used to work for Water District where I had to wear steel toe boots and worked long 10 hour shifts, a lot of walking on concrete. At 55 I am now retired, been 5 months now and still dealing with Plantar Fasciitis on my left heel. A few years ago I started seeing a podiatrist and did the foot mold thing, suggested exercises, tried inserts buying different shoes and cortisone shots with no help. Since being retired, figured since I am not on my…See More

Long Term Plantar Fasciitis

I have had Plantar Fasciitis for about 2 years now and have tried over the counter inserts; pain meds; exercise; icing; and finally started seeing a Podiatrist about 9 months ago. Since that time my feet have not improved much and I am on my 2nd pair or custom built inserts that are a little softer than the first pair. Many adjustments were done on the first pair and having worn the new pair for a few weeks now there is still no change in my condition. My question is would Shockwave Therapy be…See More
