Camille Harthorne replied to Austin's discussion How I Cured My Plantar Fasciitis
"Thank you for sharing some great tips. Stretching indeed is something that has helped my chronic plantar fasciitis tremendously. Calf stretching is also something that should be incorporated into any treatment protocol for PF, as it has proven its…"

Camille Harthorne replied to Joe's discussion Portable Handheld Ultrasound Devices
"Nice to know ultrasound still works for some. It's efficacy has been disputed for quite a time now, and some professionals (as of the current era) doesn't use it too much anymore."

Camille Harthorne replied to Lisa's discussion I'm Back
"I wonder if mobilizations or manipulations of joints and tissues would help first. We would always opt for conservative treatment first. Maybe we just need to re-align certain structures to relieve of the symptoms."

Camille Harthorne replied to Melissa Dunn's discussion Opinions?
"For me, surgery is always the last option. As you have already done almost all possible approaches to treatment of your PF, I'm thinking a next approach would be (if it is possible) to find some form of change in lifestyle, like compensation…"

Camille Harthorne replied to Ambrose Viparatin's discussion Increased pain during stretching/treatment?
"Firstly, glad to hear no abnormality on diagnostic examinations. So then, we really boil down to PF treatment. Stretching can definitely cause pain especially when done too much. Stretching is not the only thing we need to do to treat things.…"

Camille Harthorne replied to Kimberly Barrientos's discussion PF surgery and calf release, advice needed!
"Hey, don't feel discouraged yet. The open stitch will close eventually like any other wound, unless you have diabetes or something that can make healing slower. It's quite valid not to do any active activities yet on the open wound, but…"

Camille Harthorne replied to hubert townsend's discussion ultrasound machines for sale and settings
"Technically, the megahertz in an ultrasound dictates how the deep in the tissues the soundwaves would reach. In conventional parameters, 1 MHz would reach deeper because of less spread and frequency and 3 MHz would reach shallower because of wider…"

Camille Harthorne replied to Maizie's discussion Walk barefoot or not???
"They say the human body is the greatest machine ever made. It was made to withstand different environments. Walking barefoot is beneficial in a sense that you can feel the environment you're treading and adjust to it accordingly. You'll…"

Camille Harthorne replied to BLESSY's discussion heel pain in morning
"Hello and welcome. Firstly, creams' function usually involves negating the pain sensation that you feel. But even if the source of the pain is still there, the symptoms would just keep on coming back. You mentioned the pain occurs usually in…"

Camille Harthorne replied to Bradford D. Engleman's discussion Cast on foot?
"Wow. Thanks for notifying us. This is one new approach worth doing for cases like this. Did you have any atrophy after the cast treatment?"
Dec 25, 2015
Camille Harthorne replied to Bradford D. Engleman's discussion Cast on foot?
"Wait, you mean the cast as in the cement cast? The same cast they use for recovery of fractures? If that's the case, although it seems very valid, isn't it just the same as just resting your foot? Isn't that the same mechanism by…"

Camille Harthorne replied to JM's discussion Surgery In 2 Days
"To JM: I also got suprised that they didn't do much about the heel spurs. Although some spurs are small enough to not cause any discomfort or pain, some do press on or impinge certain soft tissues which cause the discomfort and/or pain and may…"

Camille Harthorne replied to James Keith Inman's discussion torn arch ligaments from sketchers shoes
"I believe aside from looking for a good shoe (which really helps), one should also do certain exercises to promote proper movement of the arches. I'm pretty sure everyone already knows the heel raises, and stretching maneuvers for the calf and…"

Heel Pain Illustration

"I saw another illustration for this and someone there made detailed observations of the inaccuracies of some of these illustrations. This one though seemed to correct one of those: The location of the formation of the heel spurs. Though the…"
