: I'm looking for advice on how to eliminate chronic plantar faciitis. Thanks
I found an elastic "heel hugger" (about $20) in Dr. Leonard's health products catalog which has a built in gel pack for icing. It can be purchased with or without magnets for additional help (if you believe in this). (I bought it with the magnets [same price], figuring "what the heck".) Anyway, I use it religiously now, wearing it for 10 min. or so when frozen, then refreezing it for 2 hrs, and putting it on again. I do this routine every day all day, as best as I can, and it helps tremendously. I also accidentally discovered that 3 Excedrin Migraine completely took away the pain for most of an entire day! I haven't yet made that part of my everyday routine, because I'm not in as much agony anymore with use of the heel huggers.
