When this first come on-- the pains were like stabbing needles in my foot spreading fast and furious like electricity. I finally went to an sports orthopedic Doctor whom took an ex-ray and diagnosed my disease. He injected cortisone into the sorest part of my foot. I wasn't too happy when he took the needle and twisted it back and forth in the most sensitive spot. I think I may have waken the dead with my screams. I did ice on my foot and elevated it to get some relief. I was watching QVC when they were doing a presentation with Vionic Orthotic supportive shoes. I ordered a pair and took their advice on getting used to wearing them. Now I have them in flip flops, dress shoes and sandals. I haven't had a flair up with my Plantar Fasciitis in a long time. I try to avoid going barefoot even in the house for long periods--- because when I do-- it causes some symptoms to reappear. Yes wearing the right shoes helps with this disorder..
