"I've done it all, all the stretching and physical therapy.... the thing with me is I no longer have PF (although I'm sure there is inflammation in my arch). My issue is that I have permanent damage from having the PF surgery with bone spur…"
"Oh, believe me... I have been doing the calf stretches all this time. :) I also try and do as much downward facing dog and other yoga stretches too for the calf. Ugh... it's never ending. Sometimes I take my rolling pin and…"
I am reposting because it looks like my response was added to your's and it looks like you wrote it. Could be my old clunky computer and old server.
OUCH to your twisting and falling. No MRI... that stinks since you…"
"Ugh, I feel bad for you. I'm in the same boat but longer. I am one year and 2 months post surgery and zero relief. Vionics orthotics (inserts not the shoes) have helped a little for me and have prevented PF in my good foot. I had to…"
"I'm sorry I can't be very helpful. It says on the website that the laser removal will not damage the surrounding tissue -- but if I were you, I would leave the tattoo. Any trauma to that area will make your muscles tighten if the laser…"
I had my podiatrist make custom inserts for my feet as well. Especially because I have a leg length discrepancy. My right leg is 1/2 longer than my right which puts even more strain on my right foot with the PF. I can't wear…"
"Hi Lex, Try Vionic shoes or the inserts. Amazon sells them. I've tried everything and had the surgery which has been a complete nightmare. Long story short, I finally decided to try these and they have been a god send!"
"DON'T Have the surgery! Surgery changes everything and it doesn't make it better. Your doc is right.... too risky!!! It only causes more trauma to your foot. I have had PF for 2 years and I finally had undergone surgery. I had…"
"Yes, the inflammation is (I should have said within the arch). I am going to check out those Abeo shoes too. While I was at the shoe store in my town (it's a local old school shoe store too and these people are pretty…"
"I remembered one more thing I wanted to tell you. Apply the Voltaren to your arch and heel pad if you want. The inflammation is in the arch which creates the pain in the heel for some weird reason. Have you had xrays and/or MRI?…"
"I tried the Voltaren and it helped a tiny bit. I applied it 4 times daily.
I had gone through everything you are doing. Except I don't know what a Strassburg sock is. 2 years and I finally had undergone surgery. I had the surgery…"
"Take it from someone who had the surgery in August 2015. DON'T have it. I have had nothing but constant pain and complications since. It's not worth it. My quality of life sucks now. I cannot walk without being in…"
