    Not Improved
    Cortisone Injection, Rest

Plantar Fascia pulled from the heel, not sure how it happened. Went to foot doctor, tried the orthotic first. It provided some relief, but hurt my arch. I tried to stay off it as much as possible, which meant I got nothing done. I couldn't take ibuprophen very often, because of other problems, although it did help a little when I did. I recieved a cortisone injection after about 2 weeks, but it did not help. The doctor didn't think another injection would help, so I started ultrasound treatments,which seemed to help somewhat. When I couldn't get there to have the treatment, I would use my heating pad to rest my foot on. This seemed to help a little. For a while it seemed to get better. I started wearing a heel gel pad in my shoes, which seemed to help more than anything else, but then it got worse all of a sudden, and became extremely painful to walk on, even having sharp pains when I was not on it. This lasted about 2 weeks or so, but suddenly started feeling somewhat better. I wore the heel pad for about a month and a half, and it finally began to be better. I took the heel pads out this week, and am walking without pain most of the time now.
