Welcome to the team! You may want to try New Balance shoes. The higher the number the better the support. You may even want to use arch supports. I use New Balance arch supports because they are better than Dr. Scholl's. Also, my doctor recommends that you change your shoes out every 6 months. This has helped me out with my PF. I also lost weight and that helped me with my PF too. So my PF isn't as bad as it was before.

Some other things you may want to try is the PF exercises and icing your foot with a water bottle frozen. You can even get golf balls and roll them around your heel. This helps as well with the PF. These are just suggestions to help you with your PF. Your doctor may have some other suggestions.

After months of pain, physical therapy twice a week, and over an hour of stretches a day, we finally found the solution to be two cortisone shots, stretches, and custom inserts. I feel like a new woman! It is so liberating to not have pain after having it for nearly a year!

Hello! I just joined Sparkpeople today. I have been suffering from PF in my right foot for a few months now. Some days it is so hard to walk, much less exercise. I am excited to hear ideas and advice from people who can relate to me.
