Try a new Dr.! It had to be a military DR. that told you that. Try changing shoes, the heel should be at least 1 inch higher than the sole. Rest, ice, slow stretches, and try 500 mg. of glucosamine sulfate and chondroitin sulfate at least twice a day. I swear that is what nearly cured mine after about a year and a half. My doc also told me the cortisone shots had to be given on the side of the foot, one on top of the muscle and one under the muscle, NEVER into the bottom of the foot. I never got the shots, I wanted to exhaust all my other options before I tried anything invasive. Good Luck!
