Doesn't seem to. I've had mine for over a year and all we seem to be able to do is find ways to calm it down. I guess we just didn't take good enough care of our feet and now we are paying for it.
Good Luck and keep reading everthing on this board, lots of info on here that has REALLY helped me. Without this board, I'd still be hobbling, now I don't hobble (well, some days I do) but I only feel that the pain is there which is alot better than as one person put it "feeling like someone drove a roofing nail into your heal".
