As I said, I tried the removable boot 2 years ago for 8 straight weeks, on except to shower and sleeping (when I was in my night splint). Got some temporary mild relief but my heel pain came back with a vengeance.

Last summer I found a new podiatrist who had me spend 8 weeks in a hard (fiberglass) cast, tip of my toes to just below my knee, the whole time non weight bearing on crutches. A new cast was applied every 2 weeks with more dorsiflexion of my foot maintained by each new cast. I was not too enthusiastic about the treatment after spending the previous summer in the d@mned boot but at my wit's end. But it worked! For the last 12 months I have been relatively pain free and have even resumed running!

Good luck and please keep in touch!

If you are referring to a "walking cast" boot (my podiatrist called it a camwalker) I have seen them on line for under $100, about 1/3 of what my doctor charged my insurance! I even ran across one once at a Goodwill Store that looked to be new for $5!
I spent 8 weeks in mine 2 years ago and any relief I got was only temporary. I'm sure the $100 ones and even the $5 one are no better. Have you had any help from wearing yours?
