I was just diagnosed with planter fasciitis and Achilles tendonitis.  I currently wear Merrell Encore Eclipse2, but do I need sneakers?

Yes: Have a good athletic sneaker is always beneficial for someone suffering from plantar fascitis. The Merrells that you have are great but a sneaker will provide better shock absorption. Having an orthotic arch support in your Merrells and a sneaker provides the maximum support for the plantar fascia but don't forget the other treatments: ice, stretch, etc. ...Read more

Start Underusing.: Plantar fasciitis, whether one foot or both, just doesn't pop up one day for no good reason. There is always a cause for the for overuse of the tissues involved. It takes time and or abuse for these dense connective tissues to be injured and it will take time for the symptoms to resolve. The sooner you get back to underusing rather than over using the sooner you will be on your way to resolution. ...Read more

While : While it's entirely possible to develop plantar fasciitis from an injury, by far, the most common presentation with plantar fasciitis is the slow, gradual onset of pain with no associated trauma. Pain is commonly described as heel pain, worse especially after rest. If you injured your foot back in july and you're still having pain, there is a fair chance you may have broken a bone or tore a ligament. I would therefore say yes, by all means, go get this checked out. I only hope that you haven't waited too long, because if it's been fractured or a ligament torn for all this time and you've been walking on it, the odds of a complete recovery at this point is severely compromised. Please go to either a podiatrist or foot& ankle orthopedist and get checked out. ...Read more
