Mayo Health Clinc Letter

Posted by john h on 10/24/02 at 10:30 (098227)

In the next issue of the Mayo Health Clinic Health Letter they will cover plantar fasciaitis. Probably basic info but you never know. Will be interested to see if they mention ESWT.

Hi John,

This should be very interesting. Not to appear ignorant, but since I am, I'll ask. Is this something you subscribe to or can you go online to access it? I'd like to check it out when it's available.

By the way, I think my Foot-Max revamped orthotics are really going to do the trick. He put in more padding, some more arch support and a lift for my shorter leg. It's only been two weeks but I've been able to walk quite a bit more than I used to, with a very tolerable pain level. And that's after being without orthotics for thirteen days and having totally traumatized my feet. I'm so hopeful that I may get back to taking walks a few times a week again. I miss it so much.

Kathy: I subscribe to the Mayo Health Letter. It is monthly and not very expensive. I am not sure if it is on their web page or not but I will look. Always has some good information and they will respond to letters about a particular subject. My neighbor who is a retired Major General has had some horrible problems with his feet. He basically cannot walk at all. He has seen four specialist in our city and no one can diagnose his problem. He is off to the Mayo Clinic this week. I know he has some swelling of the the feet but do not know the other particulars because he is just not on his feet. I talked to wife last night and what ever he has must really be bad. It came on suddenly because he was working all summer in his yard.
