    Hi

    I had plantar fasciitis for a few months and today I am almost completely over it. My podiatrist prescribed me with Custom made orthotics which did not work at all. I understood that treatment efficiency is very individual. If something works for one it will not always work for the other.

    The good news is that you have many treatments you can try but you must be persistent and patient.
    I have followed a good plantar fasciitis treatment review website in:
    http://www.plantar-fasciitis-elrofeet.com/How_is_Plantar_Fasciitis_Treated.html
    There are many self care treatments ideas in there but I think you should consult a podiatrist before do something.

    So Plantar fasciitis is cureable but you have to work on it!

    Take care

    Ten years ago I developed Planter Fasciitis. A doctor prescribed a steroid shot, anti inflammation medication and a boot to be worn at night. It took about a month for the pain to completely go away. Recently, the Planter Fasciitis reappeared. This time, I used a newly developed hand held OTC device that was a combination of electrical stimulation and Low Level Laser Light. Using the device almost in a massage and probing type manner, I treated my Achilles and entire calf area several times a day. The problem disappeared in less than a week without any medications. I also augmented the treatment by wearing shoes around the house instead going barefooted.
