      WendyD72 reacted to Sunbun's post in the thread Plantar Fasciitis with Love - Red heart Love - Red heart.
      I haven't read all the replies, but my 2 months of plantar fasciitis healed within a week after having a physical therapist (physio) do dry needling on my calf. It hurt for about 2 seconds during the procedure and rapidly started to heal in the...

      Good advice here; glad it is helping. I would add that stretching your feet gently when you wake up, BEFORE you get out of bed and put weight on your feet, can help a lot. Otherwise, your feet have naturally stiffened a bit overnight, and when...

      I had the same issue last year before Camino. Got Chiropractic attention and orthotics. Walked 800 km and not a problem! Still have not had any issues.

      How funny I got my toes cracked yesterday and you’re right, it does make a world of difference. Thanks to everyone on this forum I have to tell you the last 48 hours have been nearly pain-free. I’ve combined several of the suggestions together...
