Plantar Fasciitis Foot Notes

Plantar Fasciitis Foot Notes

Since the time MY plantar fasciitis launched from a tissue-traumatizing heel impact September 2011; through countless hours of telephone interviews — for this Web site and its companion Facebook page — with doctors and other medical personnel and scientists; through testing what I learned, using myself as lab rat; to the present state of cure and beyond: Here’s the story ( ♫ of a lovely lady ♪ ) in a nutshell.

Plantar Fasciitis Cure: Want It? Know This

Now that I’ve been doing this Web site for a year and have become an obnoxious know-it-all on the topic of Plantar Fasciitis, I’ve developed the pompous opinion that I know something about it.

Plantar Fasciitis Cured?

Last weekend, I was up in the mountains hiking in Colorado’s StauntonState Park. The temperature was bracing cold, a dusting of snow was in the woods and there were patches of ice on the path, but the sun was out and the golden aspens were aglow and it was a beautiful day.

A year ago, I was sitting at home in the gloom of not being able to enjoy experiences like this. With plantar fasciitis crippling my right foot, it was a gloomy to see myself as myself as starting a downward spiral into a disabled and premature old age. Dealing with it, let alone getting it cured, is complicated. So I set out to talk with the experts and get the answers I needed. I started a Web site, as an excuse to talk with those experts and as a means of helping others who suspect that plantar fasciitis may have ended their days of walking without crippling pain.

It’s helped me, that’s for sure. This year I’ve walked long days on hard pavement through cities as a tourist; climbed the Brocken in the Harz Mountains, the highest point in northern Germany; and taken long hikes in the mountains of my Colorado home – and I don’t have to limp anymore.

The Web site, now at two alternative URLS, has a primary focus on “self-cure” and a secondary focus on Aggressive Treatments: medical interventions for those who can’t self-cure. But if you have plantar fasciitis, you’re probably among the 90 % of us who, the docs say, can cure themselves. Like I did. But what does it mean, “cured”?
