Rest is best (in my case)

Posted by nick j on 1/06/00 at 00:00 (014429)

Hi, my name is Nick and I've been suffering from plantar fasciitis for about 3 years. I was an avid treadmill user and I think poor running shoes began the problem. I've tried all the conventional treatments for my feet including cortisone shots, orthotics, stretching, ice, Strassburg socks, magnets, taping, etc.. It took me a long time to realize to except that I couldn't do the things I used to take for granted. However, I've laid off the high impact aerobic excercises for about nine months so far. I'm almost completely pain-free which leads me to believe that rest is the most important part of my healing process. I know I can't be the only one who thinks this. Anyways, thanks for the site, Scott.
