I have plantar fascitis since September 2002 , and have been out of running almost completly since February 2003, these 3 months seem more like 3 years. I have been swimming instead and have visited several doctors and have taken all types of Rx and theraphy like ultrasound, interferential, etc. I dont have any problems with pronation and my Rx all came out ok. Most of the doctors have recommended Baxters operation but the last one I visited told me it was not a good idea. He told me I should wait and do more stretching and apply ice and heat to the affected area , which Iam doing and has made me feel better , but not totally recover. I have only been doing more stretching and ice and heat for a couple of weeks. I also use the night boot to sleep, which keep your foot extended.
I still feel that if I ever recover I will probably fall down again because it has happened in the past. I would like to hear some advice on my case and any suggestions you might have with this type of injury Thanks
