Plantar fasciitis (Read 2588 times)

    No.  I'm working today.

     

    You could be using your time to write our paper.

     

    And: that a cause has not been found does not mean that a treatment observed to work has no value.

     

    "Treatment observed to work" -- observed by whom? In a clinical setting? Or are talking personal anecdote?

     

    (Why does this feel so wrong and so right at the same time?)

      Minimalism  allows the foot to move as intended by Mother Nature, thus  strengthening the supporting muscles.  I suffered though PF most of 2010 and early 2011.  My PF has gone away after easing into minimalist running. (but not without outer issues)

        Cause can be many things: ramping up mileage too quickly is a common one but shoe type and too much pavement can contribute

        Symptoms for me are lots of pain in my arch/heel area.  Typically felt when I first start running and after runs I tighten up a bit.

        As far as minimalism addressing the cause go read Born to Run.  I think it address the topic quite well.  Whether you agree with the author or not it is an informative book.

          Non-clinically proven observation: Trent's questions are good for drumming up message board activity.

            In a clinical setting?

             

            Yes.

             

            Did you get to the part about the Semiotic Triangle yet, cuz I think that needs some more work.


            I look my best blurry!

              My recent suffering with PF has made me wonder where is all the research? There is a lot of conflicting "evidence". I've been to 3 PTs and 2 orthopedic foot specialists(one is a distance runner and one treats professional athletes). I have tried everything except cortisone injections. I am starting to improve but I have no idea what has really been helpful. Not running has helped recently. I also believe the Strassburg sock has been helpful. I have been wearing minimal shoes recently but there was a point when I believe there were no positive effects from torturing myself that way. I had to let the inflammation settle down and for that I needed support for a few weeks. Now I am able to wear NB Minimus shoes very comfortably. I am still not running. I am currently cross training (pool running and biking) Wearing Strassburg socks at night, TENS, iontophoresis, ASTYM (myofascial release), stretching and frozen gol balls.

                Does anyone have the link to Trent's new 'alternative medicine' supply store, including copper wrist bands and healing crystals?

                The process is the goal.

                  If you do please make sure I get it. I guess I haven't tried everything.

                    My DW has been in the same boat as you since early this year. She tried almost everything (but didn't go for the botox and stem cell injections that were recommended).

                     

                    In the end I think she got well enough to race (I  presume using witchcraft), but is still not 100% better.

                      WAsn't sure what DW stood for, so looked it up. Are you referring to your "dim wit"?

                          I never understand the "DW" either.  I have wondered whether it was a Saturday Night Live, Chicago Bear thing... "Da Wife", "Da Bears" , "DItka"
