Treatment Ratings

    Night splint, Stretching
    Orthotics, Cortisone Injection

Debilitating pain every day- exhausted every evening from the pain. Had a knot under heel where tendon was tearing away. I used a nighttime boot every night for 3 1/2 months. It worked. Stretching every day maintained my good result. When I didn't stretch for awhile, it started returning. I got the cortisone injection which gives immediate relief so I could resume stretching. No problem since. MUST stretch every day without fail. Orthotics seem to help distribute weight more evenly which I think is helpful.
