Re: Foot position

John,

Back in the bad old days when just sitting in a chair with my feet on the floor would place painful pressure on my heels, I tried the position you have described. As I recall, while I was in that position I was fine but when I went to straighten out, prior to getting up, the pain smack dab on the bottom of the heel was excruciating. This may be testimony to the interrelationship between the various elements of the foot and ankle structures. Driving wasn't any fun either, no stinking place to put the feet without that turned in position, or the heel in contact.
