Right Heel pain

Posted by Carol W on 11/17/03 at 19:19 (137791)

Last spring I was walking on a treadmill and got a terrific pain in my right heel. I thought it was a stone bruise but it didn't go away. I told my internist to no avail then I told my orthopedist I finally saw a newspaper clipping on bone spurs and radio waves. I finally found a podiatrist and he diagnosed Plantar Faciatis. That was 4 months ago. Now I have orthotics and sleep in a boot, but its not getting any better. Is there anything else I can do? I'm a very active 64 yr old that swims 3 or 4 times a week and used to walk 2-3 miles a week.
Sincerely
Carol

Corol - read the heel pain book on this site (click on the blue letters). This will help you are make sure that you are aware of all of the treatment options. After you read the book, if you have any questions, let us know.
