I have heel spurs and I found a few tricks that help. One is to fill a water bottle, 16oz and then freeze. To help with inflammation roll the bottle with your foot. Also I live in Arizona and wear flip- flops, they are terrible for your feet. There is no support, so I have found sandals and shoes with good arch supports. You can also buy supports to insert in shoes. Hope this helps some.. lainyw
After several years of feet pain, prescription orthodics, night splints, physical therapy (water and land) the only way I could get relief from the foot pain was epidural injections in my lower back. The injections are a series of 3, a week apart. I had very good success with them and just completed my third time of injections, 2007, 2008 and recently in 2009.
