Here it is folks. New contraption for my aching foot and heel. It is meant to keep my foot flexed in order to allow the foot to heal in a flexed as opposed to relaxed position which mimics walking. You can read more about plantar fasciitis at many different websites, just google it. Basically it is a pain in the heel and bottom of the foot that is more intense when you are just getting up from sleeping or after sitting. I’ve also tried to really limit, almost eliminate any type of cardio that impacts my foot and heel. I am still trying to work through the Couch to 5K program, but am going slow, because it does cause some discomfort especially the day after, etc. I am am supposed to wear this all night to sleep, but honestly I cannot find a way to get comfortable. So I am trying to wear it when I am sitting down during the day, after a workout, and I do try and wear it when I go to bed, but typically I wear it for a few hours and then take it off because it keeps waking me up.
Anyone else out out there have plantar fasciitis? Anything you can recommend to help? Ever worn a contraption like this? Something better? Worse? Talk to me!
