I had PF in both feet for about 1 1/2 yrs until #1-I got a lot of rest off my feet(broken ankle) and #2-I started doing heel dips per the advice of my orthopedic surgeon(stand on a lower step, balance on your toes or ball of foot, then let heels down as far as possible and hold). Do this several times in a row! I do this about every other day at the gym and have had no problems in the last year. However, I also had lots of phy therapy on my ankle and they did some work on scare tissue on bottom of that foot as well(talk about painful!!!). Ask your Dr for a phy therapy recommendation, it might do the trick!View Thread
