I am so glad you are getting some relief and that you saw your doctor. I hope you are healed completely soon.

Just had an appointment with a podiatrist who is making me shoe inserts. I really cut back on walking this past week as much as possible, although that will be harder now as my job and commute require it. It is a bit better this week than it was. I ordered a little space saving pedaler, for a bit of no impact exercise and I have an elliptical, but need to work up to it I think. This is very problematic. And I can see from everyone who answered that it is for everyone. Thanks for your advice!

Tincture of time. It will get better in 1 1/2 - 2 yrs weather you treat it or not. That being said, you can stretch and exercise your foot before getting out of bed, since those first few steps are incredibly painful. Ice, nsaids, good arch supports and a heel cup can all help too. Good luck to you. I dealt with it for about 5 yrs straight. R. foot, then L. foot and as if that wasn’t enough, it came back in the R. foot. For years afterwards any little twinge in my foot would scare the heck out of me.

A good friend (who LOVES to walk and does tons of it) had a combination of a good massage therapist and a stretching routine that worked for her.

Good luck!

It took about 8 weeks to completely get over it about three years ago. Just came back in my left foot.

Okay, in all fairness, I was stupid and walked about a mile on concrete in bare feet (we were at a water park) and I caused it to return.

I'm not a doctor nor have I ever played on one tv (but would be willing in case the opportunity arises :-) )


Anyway, here's what *I* do to deal with it.:
1. I keep a rubber baseball at my desk. Three times a day, I remove my shoe and roll my foot over it with a fair amount of pressure.

2. As I sit in my desk chair with my shoe off, I keep my toes flat on the floor and I raise my foot up to stretch out the tendon.

3. I ice it for half an hour when I get home with a 5-on/5-off sequences (5 minutes icing, 5 minutes without, five minutes icing again...)

4. More stretches at bedtime

When it gets really bad, I'll take a NSAID (prescribed by my doctor) about half an hour before I start exercising the tendon - lower inflammation when stretching it seems to help a lot.

PF really, really is annoying, so I hope you get past it quickly!

Walking slowly on my treadmill with a comfortable incline to put more pressure on toes, less on the heel. Try to keep your weight off the heel.

Loose comfortable wide tennis shoes with a lot of room for my toes to spread wide.

I make every effort to spread the toes as wide as possible for-each-step as it helps to stabilize my feet while walking.

I now do this when jogging. Every effort is put into spreading my toes as wide as possible, when coming down on my feet. Seems to work for me and lessens the chances of pronation.

Walking helped stretch my arches lessening the pain.
No jogging until all the pain is gone.

Tylenol for pain relief.

Good luck.
