Posted by Phyl on 7/02/99 at 00:00 (008436)

Hi,
I am 51 years old have had PF now for at least three years. Have not been able to wear a dress shoe in 2 years. In Mar. xray diagnosis of heel spur. Have tried ice, stretching, shots, orthotics... Nothing seems to work. Dr. wants me to try Physical Therapy for a month. If no results then will need to have surgery. Has anyone had physical therapy?? What is done in a session and did it help any. I walk a few miles daily and do not want to give it up. Please ltell me your experience with PT. Thankx
