Plantar Fasciitis
Answered by: Susan Eagles
Question from: Barb
Posted on: August 20, 2003

I have had plantar fasciitus in my right foot for two years. The pain still fluctuates and on some days I find I am still limping. I have had new orthotics, two sets of cortizone shots, many sessions of physio, craniosacral therapy and massage therapy and also trials of various anti inflammatory prescribed by the doctor. Do you have any suggestions for herbs or other treatment that may speed the healing?

I am frustrated and also worried there may be some other underlying cause of this slow to heal problem, as I also have aching muscles in my back, stiff neck, and often feel sluggish and tired.

Any suggestion would be helpful.
