Heel Pain

Posted by Ruth V on 2/21/03 at 15:35 (110200)

What a wonderful site this is. I developed heel pain about six years ago had a cortisone injection from my doctor which did'ent help. Then I tried accupunture, and it really worked. No pain for years then the last few months it's been niggling, I've been doing exercise at the gym and last week I done a ten mile walk. I've really suffered this week so now I've made an appointment to see the accupunture next week. I'll keep you all posted as to how I get on but I feel it works for me.

Cut back or stop walking until the pain is gone. Take a look at your shoes. Have you increased your amount of walking?
