plantar faciitis

Posted by Ruth A on 10/17/02 at 17:38 (097769)

I am a Registered Nurse working on my feet all day 6 days per week in a long-term care facility. The floor is hard tile and during the last month I believe I have developed plantar faciitis.
I am keen to know if anyone can recommend a well padded, supportive shoe or sneaker. I am a manager and wear scrubs 3 days a week but am required to wear more formal clothes on the other 2 days.
A warm water soak seems to help the pain but other than this I have found no relief from deep heat rubs or anti inflammatory medicines. It doesn't keep me awake at night but does cause intense pain on the first few steps of the morning when getting out of bed.
Thank you for your valuable time.
