Well this the million dollar question. There are many different ways to get rid of the pain that is caused from this condition. Such as first good shoes, stretching, medication, ESWT, Surgery. The is first thing I would do is read the online heel pain book. How long have you had this pain and what have you already done to try to get rid of this pest.
