I feel like I have tried everything and nothing has worked. I fell at work and have been seeking treatment for almost 3 years. Originally treated as a bone bruise with PT. then we did stretching and ice, orthotics, night splint, 2 cortisone injections, new orthotics, and a walking boot. Nothing has ever relieved the pain entirely. Pain has lessened from time to time, especially with the first cortisone shot for 3 months and then the walking boot for about two months during vacation. Then I went back to work and the pain was as bad as ever. I have now developed it in my other foot and was told that is an aggravating injury from compensating for the pain and worker's comp is investigating my claim because they don't want to pay for shock wave or surgery which are my only options left. I just want to be able to walk again!!
