Tape, Tape, Tape!

I have just recently became a believer in what taping can do for Plantar Fasciitis / Metatarsalgia / Morton's Neuroma. I had Morton's Neuroma and Metatarsalia and didn't start taping until about 3…Continue

"Some people do find it relieves the pain quite a bit but the risk in my opinion isn't worth it. If it does relieve the pain, that is all it's doing. Doesn't actually help heal the underlying issue. It can cause infection and can cause…"

Maizie replied to Andrea's discussion This is the worst pain...........and I cannot live my life
"Hi Debbie, I hope you find something that helps you. Be careful with the shots though. They are meant to relieve the pain but they don't do anything for treating the underlying condition. I always find this kind of thing dangerous as it makes…"

"Hi Ellen, BFST stands for blood flow stimulation therapy. It's a wrap that emits electro-magnetic energy to stimulate more blood flow to the injured area to help accelerate the healing process. More blood flow means more nutrients and more…"

"I am so sorry Andrea to hear of the pain you are going through. I know what you're experiencing. I limped for 8 months on my foot before I decided to try something. I used the ColdCure and BFST Treatments. I didn't do any stretching and no…"

Maizie replied to LD Rabbit's discussion NSAID gels (Voltaren or Zorvolex)
"I do like Voltaren, but A535 has always been my favorite for my aches. Have never used it on the bottom of the foot though and honestly I think cold is the better the way to go (as a lot of these gels/creams heat up the area). For the foot,…"

"I would agree that you may have ruptured the fascia. Don't know how common that is, but would definitely recommend an MRI. All the best. Let us know how you make out."

Maizie replied to bertharmorrison's discussion Does chiropody work?
"That's a great site. Thanks for sharing :) I couldn't quite figure out what the therapy is exactly they promote though. Is this more like chiropractor therapy but for the feet? Does that mean heavy stretching? I'm always sceptical…"

Maizie replied to Lex's discussion What Should I Try Next
"Hi Lex, I know that night splints have helped a lot of people, but please be very careful with these. Pay attention to your limits and don't do anything that causes more pain. Stretching, as important as it is with most ailments, is extremely…"

"I recommend simple taping to be honest. It's a great support and you can't even feel it on. No arch supports, just comfortable shoes and tape."

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since vital to disclose it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(abrahamakim@outlook.com ) for full details.
Have a wonderful day

Thanks God bless.

Mr.Abraham
