plantar fascilties

so last year i had a job that required me to walk 8 hrs a day
after a month my feet hurts like shit, its been a year and it hasnt improve at all. apparently it started with one foot, and somehow it developed to both feet.

i already bought one of the best runners with shoe padding...however standing will still kill me, walking not so much unless i walk around the entire metrotown or sth



some family doc gave me inflammatory pills....but does not seem to work


luckily i have an office job now so doesnt require a lot of walking, however im planning to go down to florida disney world next month..which is gonna kill my feet


anyone have similar illness? any tips? or any pain killer that can help me survive 5 days out there?

consider orthodics and physio. get a golf ball/tennis ball.. usually takes a while to heal as you are always using those muscles. the best shoes in the world won't do much since they are generic and aren't made for your feet.

I had this a few years ago and the only way it healed was because I got lazy for a few months. Then I started playing ball hockey a few months ago and it came back. I can't afford to be lazy so I need to work around it and pick and choose my excersizes.

I had a Vegas trip last month and one thing I suggest, as mentioned above, go get real orthodics. Hopefully your work covers them...they are around $500.

Really only way to heal is orthodics and rest. Ice your foot in a bucket of ice water at night that helps take the pain away but wont be a long term fix.

Cortisone injections as well but I haven't done them myself.

plantar fasciitis sucks and takes forever to heal. Ice, roll a tennis ball on the bottom of your foot, keep it wrapped, and rest.

Rest is really the only cure, I was working a construction job when I had it and ended up having it on both feet from compensating on one side, sucked big time.

So after I read that post I went on amazon and bought the Feetures compression socks. Wore it yesterday and although I was in pain from playing hockey the day before (Thursday night) my foot feels fine today. Normally after playing Thursday nights I don't feel fine until Tuesdays or so.

Only been a day...but I'd recommend them. They were like $25 shipped to point Roberts.

you should also consider doing trigger point therapy for your calves and shins. All the surrounding muscles have some involvement with actual injured area. Also if it is really bad, consider getting a TENS machine. If you don't know what that is, google it.
