Re: A sure cure!

My ortho surgeon prescribed night splints for me too. He said it will take at least 6 months for me to notice a dramatic improvement. I've been wearing them religiously for two months now and I do notice a slight improvement. I'm not so stiff in the morning. However, my pain is still pretty bad (can't walk or stand for more than 10 min.). In addition to the splints I started PT and had a cortisone injection in one heel last week. Together these treatment modalities are improving my condition. I noticed a 15% reduction in pain from the shot, and more mobility and less stiffness from the PT. Good luck all. I think this program will be my way back to health. 11:02:18
