So, went to podiatrist when i first had the pain in both heels and he gave me cortisone shots. Worked for right heel for a while. Two more shots in left heel. Next was physical therapy. I had ultrasound, massage, stretching, and icing. It all felt good but i still used a cane to walk. This went on for a few weeks. So, took ibuprofen for pain and iced my feet at home. Next came the orthotics and Sarcony sneakers, Vionic flip flops and slippers. I don't walk barefooted. I also wore a day splint and night splints. The doc even sent a prescription for pain cream to the pharmacy for me. Been through it all. Finally after using all the above, i was able to walk without pain. It took about 9 months. I still have the pain every so often but not like before
