I've had pain from plantar Faciitis for about 3 years. I've had physical therapy 2x weekly for 6 months which included 'scraping' of my calf, that in itself is incredibly painful. I've iced, stretched, done strengthening exercises, ultra sound, cortisone injections. The cortisone did help initially but my last injected only helped for 2 days. I eventually had electric shockwave treatment and blood plasma therapy, with little relief from those procedures. My podiatrist said I might be one of those people that this type of treatment doesn't work on and she suggested having cortisone shots again. I will be seein her in 2 days.
