I bought a pair of inserts that you put in the oven (Dr.Scholls I think)and then slip them in your shoes and conform your foot. Been way better since, because I am always up and down on my feet.

It's been tough for me because I am always turning and twisting my foot, floor covering. But these have helped alot, had to give up racing because of the repetative strain.

I had it pretty bad for a year. Finally went to a podiatrist and he had me do three things. (1) Stop exercising until the inflamation goes down. This doesn't mean "slow down" or "take it easy". You have to stop. (2) Stop wearing old shoes. (I had been wearing spikes for occasional baseball, football, and soccer that I originally purchased in college. Bad idea.) You don't necessaryily need special shoes, but old ones are bad and new ones must fit. (2) Stretch the foot before and after exercise. Stretching the calf and pulling back on the toe worked for me. He also recommended a roller kind of thing for the flat of the foot, but I didn't have to do that.

Thanks for asking Mark ... it seems to be doing better, as you know I drive a couple of hours to and from work so during my drive I have been stretching my foot leg and foot with pressure against the floorboard and that really seems to have helped.

Whenever I first get up in the morning is killer though, that's when it hurts the most.


Alcohol has been good for temporary relief I've also discovered. grin

I'm very impressed Murph! laugh

Thanks Rick. heheh

I do feel bad about your foot though. I have never had that particular condition but I recall trying to walk after breaking a bone in my foot. I have nasty memories of the pain shooting right up to my knee, making me wonder exactly where the break was. Foot pain is no fun at all.
