For many, plantar fasciitis has changed their lives, and not for the better. The pain is crippling. I have friends who have had surgery to help them. Just lately, one friend has looked into something called the Graston Technique before trying surgery, maybe even eliminate the need for surgery. She read about it in Fitness Magazine. Basically, the Graston Technique uses a stainless streel instrument to smooth out scar tissue. While nothing will fix everyone, she has felt improvement, so I am thrilled for her. We’ll see.
If any of you are dealing with soft tissue pain, I just wanted to tell you about the Graston Technique, and ask if anyone has tried this therapy.
Blog about Christina Wiley’s journey and her life after PF surgeries. This is a link to a blog about a woman whose plantar fasciitis and subsequent surgeries have changed her life significantly. I hope she continues to improve.
After looking through Plantar fasciitis information, I found a few recomended shoe brands that have good reputations for support. These shoes will not solve all your problems because there are so many things that contribute to PF. Neither are these drop dead sexy shoes, but they are good quality, with good reputations.
Birkenstocks. I know, I know. But with summer arriving, these will be better than flip flops.

These are only a couple of shoes. If you have found stylish shoes that don’t aggravate your plantar fasciitis, please let the rest of us know what they are.
