Hi Lynnette --
Read the Heel Pain Book on this site. It will tell you a lot about your problem and how it can be treated. By the way, plantar fasciitis is sometimes called 'policeman's heel' in Europe.

The first Ortho I went to for this in 1984 mentioned that PF was known as policeman's heal. He also mentioned that many would use the term heal spur for PF even it there wasn't any real bone spur.
