My Mom took me to my pediatricians office & I told him my feet are killing me when I first stand up in the mornings & when I wear my cleats at baseball.
He said, you have:
“Plantar fasciitis (PLAN-tur fas-e-I-tis) is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.
Plantar fasciitis causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return.You must wear supportive shoes.”
I basically can’t put any pressure on my feet, my heels are killing me & I walk like a 100 year old man.
When I went to the Dr of course I was wearing my flip flops with socks on & he grabbed my flip flop & said, none of these.
You need to always wear good sneakers that support your foot & Ankles. I said I just slipped these on to come here , but I always wear my sneakers. My feet only hurt me when I wear my cleats. My Dr said, because cleats are flat & have no support. He told me to go to CVS & use the Dr Scholls machine. We drove right there. It’s really easy & cool to do. U stand still on this treadmill looking thing & it scans your feet one at a time. Then it tells you exactly where you need support & which insert you need. I have low arches so I needed the 220 pair of inserts to put in my cleats.
Wow, as soon as I slipped them in my cleats my feet felt 100 times better. He also told me that I must do these exercises with a towel every morning before I put one foot down on the floor. I have not missed a morning even though I do them while I’m half asleep because I get up at 5:35 am, but it’s worth it because it truly helps me to be able to walk. The inserts cost about $55 dollars, not to cheap but worth every cent. I was dying in pain & limping before & now I’m all better. I even told my cousins who have foot pain & they got them & said their feet feel better too. If your feet hurt, you need to go to get scanned by this machine. Do it now, don’t suffer another minute in pain.
