      Cortisone Injection

    2.5 yrs of hell! That, bone spurs and the plantar stuff, mostly in right foot after I returned to teaching on cement floors. Slept in a tennis shoe for a while to keep my tendon/muscle from drawing up at night. Kept it stretched out. Had a pair of crutches by my bed to use after first getting up. The foot brace was too bulky. Had to go to shoes without backs in them, like Crocs. Helped a lot, but my principal hated me wearing them...not professional, he said! Used gel pads in shoes that would hold them. Little help from 2 podiatrists and an orthopedic surgeon. Still feel twinges every now and then, and it scares me to death that it is returning! Retired now and can rest and elevate my feet more. Been going to chiropractor for my knees and I see that they have treatments for feet now. I will definitely try them if problems return!!!
