It is a PitA to walk in when you have to get up to pee.


my DR likes to make them from the water activated fiberglass cast material , if you think yours is hard on off and walk , I had to hold mine on with an ace bandage

I only used it for a little while had almost forgotten about it

I would try something more like this than something that involves an ace bandage https://www.amazon.com/Fasciitis-Or...hy=9018876&hvtargid=pla-814313166947

Stretch it when you can, ice bottle/tennis ball can work. It's a pain management thing, you won't do damage by "powering through" but believe you me, I know it can hurt! Rest when you can, ice if you feel inclined, and don't discount a good compression sock designed for it. The night brace works too, but it always made my toes go numb, so I quit using it. Best of luck!

several exercises that you can find online, stretches, rolling a bottle, pulling a towel etc. I did these a lot while setting at desk at work. and good shoes/boots with good insoles cleared mine up. Not saying it works for everyone but did for me. I'm a stomach sleeper and started hanging feet over the end of the bed , I think that helped

Thank you everyone for your advise, glad to know I got options. Been doing the stretching and ice in the evening. Switched from my work boots to more comfortable shoes for work. Iím getting a new knee a week before Christmas on the same leg as my bum foot so getting around has been a challenge.

Had shots and boot like 10 years ago, frozen water bottle worked, stretching worked and installed SPENCO max arch supports in ALL boots, shoes, and even slippers. Never came back. Trying to get all the miles u can from old shoes and boots with broken down arch support is usually the cause. Along with increase in wgt as u age. whistle

The first time I had plantar factitis I suffered for months, it got pretty bad. I finally did some serious research and bought this. It's the Ossur Formfit Night Splint.

[Linked Image]



The pain was gone within a week of wearing the boot every night when I went to bed. Years later I got it in my other foot. I started wearing the boot at night right away and the pain was gone in about a week.

Now when I feel a little irritation after a long day on my feet I stretch by putting just my toes on the edge of a step and letting my heels hang down while holding the door frame. It feels good on the calves and stretches the plantar fascia. I haven't needed the boot in years.

I don't know if all or any of the other stuff suggested in this thread works or not, but I know the boot does.


Eh...wot?

Been dealing with it for years. Above advise is sound. See a podiatrist, get orthotics and wear good shoes. My doc also recommends new balance sneakers

My foot doctor told me pretty much what has been said except he wants me in a higher heeled boot like a western or logger style boot he said it would relieve the pressure and so far itís worked, but in a previous thread of mine Iím going to go with nicks boots when harvest gets over Iím going to start this process.

That's what I tried first. Went from roper heel to full packer heel. It actually made things worse until I realized the flat insoles were the probable problem. Got some insoles with strong arch support and it cleared up.

I believe mine was tendon injury due to the heel/arch getting stretched out of whack and wouldn't clear up until I took some pressure off by supporting the arch better.

My son has it. Plays high school football.
He does the frozen water bottle thing. Bought him insoles and arch supports.
It seems to help.
Stretching is always good.
Unless you rest it, it won't go away for awhile.

I believe my initial injury was caused from hanging off ladders with the ball of my foot on the rungs letting the heel tendons get stretched.

Stretching of the calf muscles is one of the most effective ways to heal it.

This. Had it so bad getting out of bed was difficult. Arch supports & stop wearing shoes far beyond their life. New shoes, grab the heel and toe and twist. Pick a brand that is most resistant to twist. now all will twist if you really bear down, but you are looking for the degree. Normally that means new balance sneakers in the 4 or high series. Always tempted to buy shoes on sale or keep wearing a comfortable shoe but my feet just about tell the day they start to wear out. Last hunting shoes I bought were Keen. Definitely a higher price tag on those but real good. Lasted a long time.

I had a similar experience. I went to a podiatrist who diagnosed me with the same ailment. He was going to measure my feet for shoe inserts that cost around $300. My insurance would have covered about 20% of that.
I bought exactly what you did, the Dr. Scholls inserts, trimmed them to fit my shoe size, and my feet have never felt better. I think I paid around $20 for the two pair.
