I'm aware that there are already several massive threads on this so apologies for starting another one,
I've had plantar fasciitis for about 8 weeks now and have been to a physio who sorted my achilles tendons and improved the PF but has basically said just to continue with the stretching till it goes away.
The PF now comes and goes but when I'm out and about I find I have to wear my running shoes as they provide the best arch support and my work shoes make the PF alot worse.
Are there any insoles I can buy that I could put in other shoes to provide more support?
I use scholl off the shelf insoles with extra arch support - they go in most shoes but if not I just use gel heel padsand full gel insoles - all off the shelf - they have really helped.
Around the house i wear Scholl orthopaedic flip flops which are amazing - they are unisex so have a look. I put them on as soon as I get out of bed in the morning to avoid tip toing / hobbling through the PF wake up pain .
Totally agree with Moolash - hit it with everything !
i use these: plantar faciitis insoles work really well.. does anyone know wether wearing insoles will actually also stregthen the plantar fascis or not?
