achilles insertion pain locally and step liftoff pain
after an injury one year ago while carrying excessive weight up a hill….the bursa/tendon insertion area has been sore.
plantar fasciitis developed also.
the area is painful to touch….more on the inside part of the heel as well as the back.
I wear a night brace which helps and also am using shoes with a higher heel which is helping as well.
after walking too much the pain is worse.
a physiotherapist has suggested ultrasound treatments but I feel that the pain will simply return upon using a lower heeled shoe or too much activity.
can you recommend a foot brace for this problem..
my feeling is that the best would be to cast the foot for a month but this would be too inconvenient.
