Plantar Fasciitis

Seriously. This shit sucks. I've had it for a couple years. Basically, it is the soft tissue that holds your arch up gets inflamed and pissed off. Wikipedia

Over the last couple years, I've bought Orthotic insoles from my chiropractor and have Ecco boots. So every day for work, I lace up $500. But it continues to get worse, despite not doing anything overly active. I'll go to the chiropractor for awhile and it will feel better, but as soon as I quit for awhile, it is back and pissed off. I can't really justify going to the chiropractor once or twice a week 52 times a year. From both a time and financial perspective. I could stand to lose some weight, but it is difficult when you can't do much exercise with your legs.

Does anyone have any experience with Plantar Fasciitis? Anyone find any relief?

There's lot of advice on the internet about ways to tape the foot for plantar fasciitis. They are all based on the same concept. Even a few simple straps of tape will help, provided you get that fascia closer to the arch.
This. Athletic tape around the foot or the arch to provide extra support.there is an underwrap if you don't want to shave the hairs on the top of your foot.

You would need to work up to it, but to answer the question (yes).

So I personally don't recommend it, although your mileage may vary. Just remember that your heel has the thickest skin anywhere on your body and it takes a very big, very sharp needle with a lot of force behind it to get thru. Not a good experience.

Stretching as others have described every morning before I get out of bed does a LOT of good. The other thing is CONSTANT support for your feet at all times. Seriously, except when I'm taking a shower, I'm wearing shoes. It doesn't have to be a $500 specially-made pair. I'm in the Air Force and my combat boots do a good job - high arch and my heel is well-cupped. Any shoe that does that works great for me.
Air Force! I'm AF Retired. Make sure it's documented in your service medical record. When you are preparing to retire, you have the opportunity to claim medical issues you've had during active duty to get issues "service connected". Then, if you have enough "service connected" issues you are given a disability rating. Every little thing makes a difference. They have 'fuzzy math', I've got 8 10% Disability issues, and 3 other things 'service connected' but a zero rating (for now, they service connect it and rating can increase if worsens) for a total of 50% disability. Sleep Apnea is an automatic 50% disability unless surgically corrected.

Here's the key, once you hit 50% disability, it's an additional payday, VA provided 'career retraining' educational benefits, and so on.

I have had PF several times. Had shots twice and it did the trick. I would be fine for about a year, then it would come back. Something I have done is put a golf ball in the freezer and roll it around with my foot, that seemed to help some. My doctor told me if I get it again he will suggest surgery. He said I would never have to deal with it again if I had the surgery done.

Is this the best taping method?



THESE insoles work really well for me. They have almost the same support as my orthodics and have much more cushion.

I have not tried that technique but it looks ok to provide support. I wrap tape all the way around the foot for compression.

This worked really well for me. I played a game of basketball (which normally eat my lunch) and am having few adverse effects from plantar faciitis.

I was diagnosed back in the late 90's and the ONLY shoes I buy are New Balance. You buy them and use the "Shoe Last" to get what you need. I use the SL-2 shoe last that has a higher instep. I have had the best luck with these not making my feet hurt when walking all day.

Put your foot on a tennis ball and press down hard, run back and forth quite a few times, s few times a day. Shoe inserts, Advil and run it off. That's was the only thing that cured mine.

Oh and a "GOOD" pair of Birkenstock sandals to wear in nice weather help tremendously as well.

Once you wear them "IN" you will never wear anything else around the house or out and about doing errands.

Running barefoot fixed it for me. Arch supports were just a band aid.

That makes it DRAMATICALLY worse for me. Even walking around my house barefoot flares it up.
