I think my shoes are causing my pain.


Thursday, March 01, 2012

I have a pulled hamstring. I have been doing light exercises and a program by Peggy Brill, a physical therapist to heal my leg. Today, I wore my running shoes for the first time in a few days. Pain!

I have plantar fasciitis and have to wear stability running shoes. Since most of the stores around me do not carry specialty shoes, I usually have to order my shoes online. I ordered some New Balance running shoes that are specifically for Stability. By reading the description they should be great. Unfortunately, after 6 weeks of wearing them, all I feel is pain. I feel pain in my leg and on the ball of my foot. I do not think the shoe is very well cushioned.

I am going to give these shoes away to charity, because they definitely do not work for me.

    Consider going to a podiatrist and having custom made inserts for your shoes made. You then pull the insert out of the shoe and put your custom made one in. I had this done 5 or 6 years ago and my plantar fascitis gradually disappeared. Today at my lower weight I don't need the inserts anymore. Good luck
