Horrible pain in right foot. I would go get a shot then it would be taped up. After the taping, I would massage and use ice while taking Ibuprofen. It kept returning until I had Rolfing done, and he worked extra hard on the Achilles' tendon and the plantar tendon. Never had a problem on that foot again.

When the pain started in my left foot, I knew it was the same thing. Again, shots and taping, ice and massage, then orthodics. All helped, but pain continued off and on for two years until my son got me a pair of Kenkoh sandals. Don't have any idea how, but they worked, and I have no more pain. They are advertised to help with the pain of plantar fasciitis. The reason I didn't have the Rolfing done on my left foot was because my Achilles' tendon had pulled the top of my heel bone off on that foot. My heel bone had to be screwed back together, and I was afraid to mess with all that.
