PF back again

Posted , 2 users are following.


As I have said before PF takes many forms and causes and after several years free of the stabbing heel pain like a nail in the front of the heel I now have a pain around the heel that feels as though I've bruised it not the stabbing pain. I think it may be the form called policemans heel so I have increased the cushioning in my walking boots so now have gel heel pads, gel PF insoles and ordinary insoles and it makes walking bearable. I have just tied a roll on Pain relief called Biofreeze and the pain is much reduced better than the Voltarol I had been using so worth a try if you are a fellow sufferer. Manged my weeks skiing OK with PF insoles in my skiboots and fortunatly the boots take the strain off the foot as they clamp the whole foot and ankle so most of your wieght is tranferred to the calf, unfotunatly they are hell to walk far in otherwise I would be clumping around in them at home.

Best of luck to you all and hope you find something that works for you.

    Hi Chris

    Sorry to hear you have plantar fasciitis back thats a worry i have having not recovered yet after 17 months although it is a whole lot better than it was. Im a hill walker and have only recently started to walk more than just a few miles. Im interested in the biofreeze tied on ? I know the spray which i use after a walk once i have plunged my foot in ice and water to reduce the inflammation. Can you explain more ? Did you have an insole made or just an over the counter type? Good luck with getting improvement with this awful condition.
