Is anyone running again with PF?

Posted by Margaret on 3/11/98 at 14:23 (000348)

I have PF and was wondering if any runners got through this (via conservative methods or surgery) and were able to run regularly again? How long did it take? Any input appreciated!

Yes I have and I said no to orthodics. With the new product called Arch*Rite. You can get them from your podiatrist or from United American Medical at 1-800-521-5002. Cost is about $20. I had to quit running and playing basketball. But, now I am back to doing both pain free. I just put them on in the morning and took them off at night and in less that 30 days my problem was history. I still use them only when I am involved in an activity that is going to be hard on my feet. Let me know if you try one
