Thank you for posting this, Dr. Weil. I can only say that I wish the podiatrist I saw when my PF began almost a year ago had taken an approach similar to yours! (Things never mentioned to me included stretching, shoe quality, arch support, heel lift, no barefoot, icing, casting.) We went from cortisone shot (first visit) to night splint to custom orthotics to a scheduled surgery date, which I canceled after finding Scott's site. I am finally on the road to recovery after finding here the conservative-treatment help I needed.
Thanks again for taking the time to answer my question --Nancy S.
