Some people do get over it

Yes, some people do get over it (I'm not one of them--yet)

I personally know 4 people who got over it--one used ultra sound (she was 40), one used only heel lifts and the pain was gone immediately (he was 50), one used heel lifts and orthotics for about 6 months (he was 60), and another 60 year old woman who just put lifts in her shoes.

I think the people who get over it quickly with heel lifts and orthotics are able to just forget about it, get on with their lives, and don't find their way to this board.

However, even since I have been reading this board (about a year) there have been some people who have recovered completely--if you keep reading the board or go back over some past posts you will see some success stories.
