As soon as I retired I started exercising more. I extended my walking time and ramped up my walking speed. I was feeling great for about a week or two. Then the PF pain started and it took over a year to get rid of. Fortunately I found Dr. Lance Barry in Cartersville, GA. He put me on anti-inflammatory meds and sent me to an athletic shoe store. I end up spending over $100 for a pair of Asics, and I was told to wear them daily. Dr. Barry also put me in a night splint. I followed this routine for almost a year, and I am totally pain free!
