Treatment Ratings

    Supportive Shoes
    Ice, Stretching
    Not Improved
    Rest, Night splint

After four years of ice, applying opera sure, stretching and then finally buying a splint to keep my heel bent at night while sleeping, with very little improvement, I finally bit the bullet and sprung for Vionic flip flops (I live in SoCal) for $75. I broke them in gradually, increasing the time worn. In just a few days the pain was gone and after 8 months has not returned, even though I do not wear those shoes every day, though I do wear them at least every few days.
