i have bilatrial pf with spurs and have a workers comp claim approved.
I work on a hard surfaced floor (tiles on cement) my doc said work related as soon as I told her this. plus as a machinist you must stand in one spot a lot? That is the worst for me. golf is easy soft grass no standing

I notice a dramatic increase in my pain level after the weekly 1 hour trip to the grocery store. We have carpeting at work...so the grocery store is the only place I walk all week that is tile/cement. I usually stay away from the mall for the same reason.

I work on concrete (machine operator) and have pain only when standing in one spot. I can move between machines but simply cannot stand in place for more than 10 minutes without severe pain. I wear boots with plenty of room and a thick footbed from a local orthopedic shoe store. I have no walking pain or heel pain, just a burning sensation when standing. It's been hard to get info on this condition for some reason.
