I am an aerobics instructor and have had PF for about 9 months now. I have seen two podiatrists, got custom orthotics, used taping, stretching, and ice. I got cortizone shots which cured me for about 2 or 3 months but the symptoms came back just as bad as they were before. Plus, the shots were agonizing. I've now just started seeing a chiropractor at a physical therapy place at my health club. He seems really competent and has indicated a course of ultrasound, electric stimulation, and adjustments to the foot. The ultrasound and electric stim seem pretty mainstream and both podiatrists I have seen agree that both methods are useful for PF; I am wondering if anyone has experience with or knowledge of the usefulness of chiropractic adjustments to the foot for PF. The chiropractor gently rotated my foot and pointed out a clicking noise that he said was due to some sort of misallignment of my foot. He told me that adjustments would result in biomechanical changes which would prevent the PF from recurring. Any thoughts?
