Subject: RE: BS: Plantar Fasciitis (Ouch!)
Oh, I've got that too. I find that the worst possible thing I can do is to support the foot. Feet are designed by nature to bear weight on the ball and heel (and a little round the outer ridge) NOT TO HAVE THE ARCH SUPPORTED AND BEARING WEIGHT.

The less I wear shoes the better. If I must wear shoes - wholly flat insoles with no supports are best.

Recently I am finding that proper leather "office shoes" (oxfords, or brogues) are pretty good too.

I might try your version out though just to see, as I have had this for about 18 months and that's the sort of time span they start talking about PAINFUL injections or operations with a significant failure rate.
