I experienced a flare up of Plantar Fasciitis about 3 months ago. Originally suffered about 6 years ago so I recognised the symptoms straight away. Mostly in the right foot but some discomfort in the left foot as well. Booked a Physio session to do a reset on the exercise regime and have been doing calf stretches, heel lifts and calf massages since. No discernible improvement. I am using orthotics. Pain is bad enough to cause a limp and I am experiencing some hip pain as a consequence. Ibuprofen may or may not be helping.
Not sure of next steps (no pun intended). Getting pretty fed up with not being able to do my normal regime of long walks, playing badminton etc. I am 64 and in good general health.
Not sure whether to go back to the physio or see a podiatrist or even book a session with my GP. I know this condition can take time to sort itself but I am keen to seek the most relevant professional help. Any suggestions on who to approach next?
Thanks in advance.
