Plantar fasciitis

Posted , 12 users are following.

Okay so I was just told I have Plantar fasciitis and I'm so sad about this I have sports and things I do. This isn't fair but now I have to stop playing volleyball. Also I have to get a steroid shot in my foot

    You can still play when you get things calmed down, you just have to get the right supportive footwear.  Roll a frozen golf ball under your foot or iced water bottle which will reduce the inflammation.  Lots of things you can do.  good luck.

    I would advise great caution - I'm a golfer and carried on in competition after my plantar fasciitis injury - I used supportive insoles - I badly injured my foot and a year later I'm still having issues - I've done all the excercises and taken all the anti inflamatories !! So - just rest or u could do extra damage like I did !! The old saying more haste less speed !! I so wish I had rested my foot it probably would have been fixed six months earlier !!! Good luck u have my sympathy it's just the Pitts !! Keep stretching it out and massage is great !!

    i also have plantar fasciitis i also have had the injection. the injection was rather weird but virtually painless my consultant was amazing. i think it has helped but have fibromyalgia which also gives me pain. i would give it a try if you have confidence in your consultant. good luck

    Me 2,4 days ago.I agree with the 2 ppl who have replied 2 u already having spoken to a retired NHS OT manager.Things could b so much worse but u want 2 give urself the best chance of a swift n complete recovery-think of the long game.Ur foot/feet needs rest n support n antiinflammatorys now to recover n prevent any damage. Know it's a nuisance-I'm not sporty but I do walk a lot not being a driver and in my job so it will affect my lifestyle.Good luck-let m know how u r getting on

    That injection might work temporarily

    But stretching will work in the long run

    Also rolling a frozen water bottle

    My podiatrist told me expect 7 to 8 to heal

    Which is about right but I still have PF due to a bad ankle if I work to hard

    I don't think it ever goes away entirely
