Plantar fasciitis (Read 2587 times)

snicole


    I had plantar and didn't run for a year upon some very bad advice.  I finally found a really good (and old school) podiatrist who fit me with orthodics and I was running again in 1 month.  Before you go spending money on other things (like deep shock therapy which did nothing for me) make sure you have checked out whether you need orthodics.  I had a fallen arch in one foot and whenever I go without my orthodics (on a daily basis) for about a month, the pain comes back.  I needed to write you... b/c I remember my despair one year ago when I thought I would never run again.  It will go away... you just need to find something that works for you.

      support treats the symptoms, minimalism treats the cause

      support worsens the cause, minimalism worsens the symptoms

        Find a PT that knows how to do some good manual therapy

            I believe bzaganjo meant manual therapy of the foot. 

            In an infinite universe, the one thing sentient life cannot afford to have is a sense of proportion

              Always helps if shes cute

               

              Yea manual therapy of the foot/ankle, all the recent research is saying that helps more than the traditional heat, ice, stretch, ultra sound, etc...

                Define: cause, symptoms, and minimalism please. Is this advice based on science or on personal anecdote?

                        Symptoms are the manifestations of a disease.  Cause is the underlying problem.  Minimalism is the opposite of orthotics.

                              No.  I'm working today.

                               

                              You could be using your time to write our paper.
