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

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

I have planters faciatis and am icing & Advil (ibuprofen) & night splint & orthotics. Should I get a shot or what other options? Had it 2 yrs ago?

I have planters faciatis  and  am icing & Advil (ibuprofen)  & night splint & orthotics. Should I get a shot or what other options? Had it 2 yrs ago?

All the right moves: Since it sounds like you're doing all the right things (are you also stretching several times a day and avoiding flat footed shoes and activities that aggravate it?) then yes, I think getting another shot of a steroid and anesthetic would be your best next move. Otherwise you may need to consider a cast or even shock wave therapy. Talk to your doctor about these options if necessary. Best wishes! ...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

What is the plantar in fasciitis?

What is the plantar in fasciitis?

Inflammation. : Plantar fasciitis is inflammation in the thick, fibrous band of tissue that helps support the arch of your foot. This can occur because of poor shoegear (unsupportive flats, heels, flips flops, old canvas shoes), an increase in activity (training for an athletic event), or an increase in weight or other stress to your feet. See your podiatrist for treatment options. ...Read more
