PT #2

Posted by peggy m on 11/25/03 at 19:23 (138712)

I went to my second physical therapy session today. I was surprised how many people in this small town of 14,000 have this problem. Several factories and most of them are in the same stages as me. Trying to prevent surgery. The PT's told me I need better shoes. Any suggestions about that... Also I do have custom orthotics. The stretching is helping me so much. I can't believe my pod didn't tell me about this. It would have saved me 3 cortisone injections in the last yr. Also the PT told me to quit using ice for now. Only stretching and get new shoes. I need some advice about that. Thanks for everything everyone. Keep in touch....
