Treatment Ratings

    NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs, Cortisone Injection
    Not Improved
    Physical Therapy, Phonophoresis

The cortisone shot helped with bringing down the inflammation, but what has been the most helpful is postural improvement, specifically, wearing orthotics and being careful to keep my ankles straight such that my feet don't pronate. By keeping my ankles straight over my feet my knees and hips line up. Major improvement! But I have to keep mindful of what my feet and ankles are doing. It amounts to trying to keep an arch in my foot.
