Treatment Ratings

    Almost Cured
    Orthotics, Ice, Cortisone Injection, Supportive Shoes, Strengthening Exercises

No foot injury, but jobs requiring much standing. Plantar Faciaitis began 15 yrs ago. Sought Tx with Podiatrist : recommended custom orthotics & supportive shoe along with daily - weekly stretching exercises. Icing if necessary. Have minimal pain now but occasional flare ups. If I am proactive with exercises, the shoes & orthotics help tremendously. Have custom orthotics each for sneakers, support shoe, & dress shoes. I even place a pair in good slippers. Faithful wearing has primarily cured the ailment.
