Plantar Fasciitis is a new affliction over the last few months. Yes, kind of a pain. Recently I have tried using all the above aids & it has definitely helped — along with decent arch supports in my walking shoes.
Just wanted to share this with you in case you too were having issues. These aids are cheap enough. So worth trying. The secret, I have found, is to really lift up the arch.
Still on crutches and a full, locked leg brace — but still insisting on hobbling about. Both legs are atrophying in front of my eyes. But, no pain. Of that, I am glad. I was dreading having to live with pain.
As far as I know, I have to be on crutches for 2 more weeks. If they try to force me to use them any longer we are going to have an issue. I am resigned that I will have to wear a knee brace for the rest of my life. I probably will need to wear two — one on top of the other.
No disguising that or making out that it is something else. That is a finger-brace for treating severe finger trauma. As an ex-Rugby player I know. Finger injuries, accidental and otherwise, are very common in Rugby.
