Forgive if this has been discussed already-I'm sure it has-but anyone out there with a treatment plan that was successful for Plantar Fasciitis? It's been going on now for at least 4 months if not more, but now it's to the point where it's also hurting when running. I guess I should have been smarter in the earlier days when it only hurt after running, but if I felt good, I ran, you know?
Anyway, I've been resting it more, using the stationary bike for cardio & only doing upper body & core exercises. Ice, Ibuprofen, KT Tape all provide some temporary relief. And next weekend I'm supposed to do a 10K-I tried to run last night & only lasted a 1/4 mile, then had stabbing pains afterwards. I have inserts designed specifically for it that I've been using not only in my running shoes but also for any of them when possible. It did motivate me to get back in gear for weight loss, & I have lost about 10 pounds since it's gotten bad, so that 's a good things I guess!
I'm just extremely frustrated-every time I get into a program with an event as a goal, something like this comes up. One step forward, 2 steps back. Any advice would be appreciated, thanks!
