Plantar Fasciitis

Question:

What treatment was effective for your plantar fasciitis? Submit Your Comment

Comment from: ScreenNameW, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: April 26

I purchased a device (some years ago) to wear on my foot at night. It kept my foot more bent and thereby allowed the tendon to stretch. I could tell that was the cure because the more often I used it the less pain there was. Eventually the pain did not return.
