Plantar fasciitis cure

Posted by Harold H. on 10/15/99 at 00:00 (011755)

I've had this problem with left heel since april 1999 and have tried all the conventional solutions to no avail. Today I heard that taping is supposed to do wonderful things to relieve the pain. Does anyone know the taping procedure or where I might find a writeup on it on the internet? Appreciate.

Read Scott's 25 + page comprehensive review of plantar fasciitis and its treatment. Its on this website and has taping instructions (along with hyperlinks to other useful information).

I had my foot taped professionally (in the podiatrist's office by his technician). I did it twice (once every three days). It did not help.

It takes a lot of practice getting the taping right, but when you do get it right, the tape will support your arch just as much (more in my case) than my orthotics.
