Plantar Fasciitis, how is it diagnosed and treated?

Posted by Jerry Spadafore on 11/13/98 at 17:29 (002159)

I run over 1,000 miles a year and have done so for over fifteen years. I now am experiencing some pain in my heal area. At times it gets so bad that I can hardly walk. When I don't run for a couple of days it gets better but I can still tell that there is a problem. I have stopped running and now work out on a stepper. Anywhere from 20 minutes to one hour. There is still pain but not as much. Does anyone have any advice for me?
