Found something that seems to work

Posted by Adam S on 5/09/02 at 20:44 (083303)

I have Plantar Fascitis and a heel spur with severe pain for about 9 months. I've been to three doctors already who told me to stretch. I've been doing it for about three months and still have pain. I tried the night splint, heel cream, orthotics, etc...

Two weeks ago my girlfriend bought the abgym (The electric thing that is supposed to tone your muscles) One day I figured I'd try it for my heel pain. I strapped the device to my heel and gradually increased the voltage. I left it on for about 10 minutes and my pain is feeling better. I have no clue if this will work or not, but I'd like to know if anyone else has has this experience.
