Orthotic treatment for plantar fasciitis / heel spur

Posted by Kim D. on 9/13/02 at 15:05 (095266)

I've had my foot strapped ( taped/padded) for over 8 weeks now to decrease inflammation around my heel spur. My foot is gradually getting better. The next step may be a customized orthotic that fits in my shoe, to take the place of strapping. My insurance doesn't cover it. Has anyone heard of this, or had one of these, and is it worth the $$$?
