Re: Plantar Fasciitis and back problems - Can anybody help?
my mom has that wonderful foot ailment too and she is an RN who works ten and twelve hour shifts. She is doing great by wearing birkenstock shoes. She loves them and feels better. Also she got some stretches to do. Did your dr give you any? If not, she was told to do these before getting up in the am: Point your toes and stretch and hold it, then flex and hold that. Do circles counter and clockwise. Do all of this first thing in the am before you get up. If you want, I can find out other things she may suggest. Best wishes to you! You know, your feet and knees and your back are also related, so maybe if you can get your feet feeling better, your back may ease up. But, that is a guess-you never know.
