... the best thing for plantar facitis is STRETCHING. The golf ball is good, but if you put your good foot on the floor, bend the other knee and raise the heel, it will do wonders. ... (12 replies)
... GREAT. There wasnt even an incision! I've been pretty much pain free since. I never had luck with orthotics, but they made me some custom ones that fit well. The best shoes I was told to where would be wide, and supportive shoes, and that a slight heel is good. ... (5 replies)
... I'm very surprised you were told orthotics would not help your situation. Very often orthotics are prescribed by podiatrists specifically for plantar fascia strain as they support the arch completely taking pressure off the area. You might want to get a second opinion on this. ... (5 replies)

... I am a big fan of Finn shoes. (4 replies)
... You can see if there's any The Walking Company, Foot Solutions, or Lucky Feet stores located close to you. I know Foot Solutions has an in-store podiatrist at some locations. Any of the above offer a variety of foot-friendly options, and you can try them on & see what feels best :) (4 replies)
... Alegria is also really good. I think I spelled that right. They are designed for nurses who are on their feet a lot and they come in a lot of nice colors and designs. ... (4 replies)
... So, I have been through the TOPAZ surgery and now need to buy some good supportive shoes that I can wear to work. We dress more business casual which is usually a nice shirt and dress pants. ... (4 replies)
... It might be worth consulting the yellow pages for an orthopedic shoe store in your area. The shoe store should house a footwear expert, possibly a certified pedorthist, who can find the best shoes for her. ... (5 replies)
... Thank you all for your advice, I appreciate it very much. ... (5 replies)
... ce. They have a rocker bottom sole. I found out about them when I was recovering from PTT surgery and asked my foot specialist physical therapist. She said NO for PTT but they were great for PF. I went home and ordered them that day for my husband. He LOVES them so much. I got him a second pair for Christmas. ... (5 replies)
... I am very suprised that you were told orthotics would not improve your problem. I have found that orthotics actually significantly help plantar fasciitis. So, I would look further into that. I would recommend maybe a pair of New Balance or Nike Shox. I would also recommend that you get a second opinion. ... (5 replies)
... I figure skate on occasion and it actually feels good for my feet. I also have found stretching the feet while bike riding helpful. I walk daily as well. ... (5 replies)
... Danskos are wonderful. I have tried many types of shoes for my PF and since wearing the Danskos I very rarely have pain. ... (5 replies)
... Danskos. My sister who suffered for many months from plantar facsciitis LOVES them-- says they're her favorite shoes for walking/standing intensive activities like her teaching job or Christmas shopping. You don't need insoles with them. Hope you have a great vacation! (5 replies)
... I know how your feeling, I was diagnosed about 3 yrs ago. It was a real pain for the first year then got slowly easier to live with. ... (17 replies)
... I have been injured for over five months now with no end in sight and my entire life is in shambles as a result. I literally cannot do anything. ... (5 replies)
... the best correct for your problem is stretching because your planar facia is tight and that is all it is. Rigid shoes and casts are the worst thing in the world for you. If you look up exercises for this on the Internet, you will be amazed as to how quickly you will see the difference. ... (11 replies)
... If you are wearing shoes that are stiff, they could make your problem worse. You want to wear flexible shoes, so that when you walk you have flexibility. The plantar facia controls not only the foot, but your who leg and hips. if that is cut, one will have problems later on in life. ... (21 replies)
... Best wishes for the new year! My apologies this is so long. ... (3 replies)
... Try looking at Munro's. you can also take put there insole and put in an orthodic if you need to. (4 replies)
