P faciiatis with no morning pain

Posted , 4 users are following.


I’ve been on orthodics fir 28 years

About 18 months ago my chiropractor Talked me in to wearing his version of  foot levelers from a scan machine. Ive Always had a  cast of my feet. Everything seemed fine for a year and  about 8 months ago my feet are aching everyday . 

What I remember I was running up and down stairs because I am a painter and of course I’ve been on ladders for years . I had a sharp  pitch in my knee. And it seems like ever since then my feet do not work with any orthotic. I’ve seen 3 podiatrist and they all just fit me with new orthodics..  they hurt the same from underneath and aching up... I’ve had x-rays only and every other time I made a visit it was only  a visual diagnosis. They didn’t even want to hear about my several pairs of orthotics before and I didn’t want to entertain the idea of maybe watching me walk down the hallway. 

I get instant relief when I take them off. 

Feet don’t hurt when getting out of bed which is a classic planters faciatus.....last podiatrist said there’s nothing I can do for you and referred me to a physical therapist for mri of my back ....

He also said chiropractor care could be the cause and really was rag tagging on  chiropractor work in general. 

Was a bit shocked that the foot Dr couldnt do nothing for me. I do want to mention he did take x-rays and showed nothing ... I’ve Hird  of a stint that could help called  Hyprocure but none  of the podiatrist seemed to want to listen .

Just wondering if chiropractic care could have something to do with it and should I stop chiropractic care all together.

Oh yeah, by the way all three podiatrist and my general practitioner and the doctor at the pain management facility said for me to try and go barefoot it for a while or not wearing orthotics at all. This is a really scary scenario when you been wearing orthotics for three decades. Do you think I might’ve injured it real bad during that episode of running up and down the steps and it finally just gave way , like the tendons or muscles. But not necessarily, planters fasciiatus . Or have you heard of having planters fasciitis without morning playing

    Hi Matt,

    I’ve had Plantar Fasciitis in both for five years. When it first started, the pain in the mornings, and after resting, was unbearable. But I don’t get it so much in the mornings anymore. When I’ve been on my feet for a while they ache, and I end up with really bad stabbing pains. I’ve tried every orthotic going and some of them helped ease it for a short time. The podiatrist gave me some a few months ago and they seem to be the longest lasting as far as ease of pain goes. But she told me to NEVER WALK BAREFOOT. I’m having the cortisone injection in both feet in June. I’ve heard that walking on tiptoes as much as possible helps a lot because of the stretching.

      Hi,  I wish you much luck with having the injection.  I have heard not so great things about doing that.  But, of course it is your body and you can do as you please.

      And yes, I can relate to morning foot pain.  But, it does get better after you start walking on your feet, right?  It does for me.  PF is no fun to have, but I believe it will go away in due time.  Also, in case you did not know, it is weight related too.  Carrying extra weight can be very hard on your feet.. too much pressure.  I do wish you much luck after you get those shots.. really I do. Hope you will get some relief!!!!

    Hi Matt,

    Walk barefoot with PF! what idiot told you that, its the one thing we never do on hard floors only on the beach or soft flooring. I too used to do a lot of ladder work and found that standing on the rungs got rid of an ache in the calf that had come on in latter years but when I retired and no longer did much ladder work the pain got much worse with a stabbing pain in front of the heel so the doctor said classic PF and there was nothing he could do it was up to me to exercise the calf muscles to take the strain off the PF tissue.

    I did that and saw a foot specialist who recommended gel heel pads and to carry on with the exercises and avoid flip flops and walking barefoot and see ho it goes which I did and thankfully the PF has subsided and I have carried on wearing the gel heel pads and the exercises in case it comes back. I did take painkillers but none of them worked because of lack of blood flow around the PF tissue.

    Lack of morning pain is not normal PF but it has many forms and if it happened after running it may be a torn PF so rest and cushioning the heel are the only answers.
