When I was first diagnosed with PF my doctor said to make sure that any shoe I wear has some type of elevated heel. However, the shoes taht I use to exercise in do not and I wear Birkenstocks all the time and they have a resessed heel. I am not so sure that wearing a elevated heel can help, except it doesn't strech out the arch. I feel that stretching it actually helps. I wear a Spenco hard orthotic and they strech my arches and they have worked wonders. Sometimes the doctor is not always right. 19:59:03
