plantar fasciitis

Posted by Sally S on 7/08/03 at 12:35 (123753)

I've had plantar fasciitis for about 2 months. nothing seems to be working. i've had 5 shots of cortizone & now i'm in physical therpy..i still have days where i can't walk, but most troubling is the 'burning heel' sensaton...what would cause this? also, would putting my foot in a cast help in any way? thanking you in advance for your help

Five shots of cortisone in 2 months? Not a good idea.

Please take some time to read Scott's Heel Pain Book on this site so you understand plantar fasciitis and how it is treated. A cast may be helpful to allow things to calm down.
