J-how did you do with the Active Release Therapy? I'm very curious. I've had plantar fascitiis in both feet for 3 years and have tried everything including surgery and I'm still in pain.
: I have found a great chiropractor who practices Active Release Therapy. It is used for treating carpal tunnel syndrom but he is now using it to treat plantar fascitiis. It is a type of massage (simplification) that breaks down scar tissue that has formed on the fascia surrounding your muscles. Just started therapy on feet and will need a few more sessions. Appartently it works. J
: : My right heel feels bruised whenever I put weight on it. I teach kindergarten and must remain on my feet most of the day. I'm also overweight and have been going to Weight Watchers whereas I've lost 12 pounds. However, it's difficult to do my walking exercise with the pain in my heel. It is especially sore when I get up in the morning and after walking 20 minutes or so.
: : Could this be heel spurs? or something else? What can I do to alleviate the pain?
