I'm in my late twenties and I used to work out everyday in old sneakers. My heels then started hurting. As soon as this occured I started to get lower back pain. 3 yrs later, I still have pain in my heels (PF) and lower back pain. They took an xray a couple years ago and said nothing is wrong with my foot and I am not overweight yet I have to deal with these chronic issues
I went to the physical therapist and the exercises only seemed to make things worse. I went to a podiatrist clinic place to get custom orthotics and they had me step in a foam box. The orthotics I recieved were way too thick and did not fit in my shoes despite them trimming them 2 or 3 times. I would have to wear a custom shoe with velcro straps.
Just not sure what to do?? I have high arches and overpronate so I wear a new balance stability shoe. My heels hurt so bad if I have to stand for too long and Ive also dealt with calf soreness and shin splints as well as the lower back pain. Any helpful advice really appreciated.
Should I get plaster cast orthotiics and I also see something about Footmaxx? Just not sure where to turn.
