Cane for support

Posted by Claire R on 3/09/05 at 06:54 (170770)

Can you advise as to the use of walking canes to hopefully help avoid the body´s weight from impacting on the foot with plantar fasciitis, and to relieve pain and inflammation? I have no financial connection with the sale of walking canes--only wish to relieve my symtoms. Thank you.

A cane could help you. Any device and or item that off loads the plantar fascia and not place weight or cause pain on other area is a good idea
