Plantar fasciitis

Posted by David M. Spear on 4/28/99 at 00:00 (006345)

I had everything done except surgery. The acupuncture, the cast, the shots of cortosine (sp?) and none of it helped. Three years ago I was in San Francisco and went into a shoe store and bought a pair of Clark Aircomfort shoes. Several weeks later my foot quit hurting.I bought five pair of Clarks because I was afraid they would quit making that shoe. I alternate then daily and I have no more pain.
I did lose some weight which helped but the shoes were the trick.
I had spent over $3000 with doctor bills with no help and stumbled into a pair of Clark shoes. I hope this information will be of some use to someone else.
