I am related to a massage therapist. The tips I was given were: ice, the one that worked best for me was put a partially filled water bottle in freezer use that and roll foot over. Felt really good and helped a lot. The other was doing towel pull. You were probably given that. The cold tip was golf balls in the freezer and same as water bottle. I liked water bottle better because my entire foot got treatment. Not just a small area.

I went through the same thing a couple years ago.

First of all, make sure you are doing your PT exercises 2-3 times a day. If you haven't done so, get yourself some orthaheel full length inserts.

One thing that can aggravate your feet is being on them a lot.

The best advice I can give is make sure you keep your calves stretched good and also bicycling. I have one of those recumbent style exercise bikes. Saves my feet a ton.

Hope this helps you out some.

I bet you could just tell your trainer what is going on. He/she and you should be able to figure a workout plan that doesn't aggravate your foot issues.

I just completed 90+ days of PT and am wanting to get back into exercise. My PT gave me some basic exercises to do but I'd love to hear from others who may have experience so I know what to tell my trainer when I go to the gym. Definitely don't want to overdo it and end up back up in PT!!!
