    Not Improved
    Ice, Weight loss, Supplements

To date, I can achieve brief intervals of pain free status with occ oral prednisone (usually 2-3 x year) and orthotic inserts/orthotic shoes. Unfortunately, mine is a chronic situation dating back 10 years or more, and my symptoms always eventually return. I never go barefoot, and always use orthotics. Being on my feet for prolonged periods is a recipe for disaster even with inserts.
