Re: Heel Spurs
I had a problem about 15 years ago with them and it still flares up from time to time. I did end up having the surgery on one foot, but that was after trying the anti-inflamatory presciption drugs, $600 non insurance covered orthotics (I hear ya!!!!!) and cortisone injections. One thing my podiatrist did tell me though that has helped a great deal, especially now at keeping it from flaring up as much, is to wear Nike walking shoes. I have tried different brands and types over the years, but still those tend to work better than anything else I have tried. Whenever I have a flare up now the first thing I do is go buy some new Nike walking shoes and it usually does the trick. I have also heard wonderful things about CROCS for many different types of foot problems, but I haven't tried them yet.
