A few years ago I was bothered by plantar facitis (sp.?) or heel pain. It switched from one heel to the other & finally disappeared altogether as the podiatrist said it would. He treated it with a whirlpool bath & cortisone shots but neither one really helped. It just went away the same way it came, from nothing. Now it's back but I can't go back to the podiatrist because I'm not in that area any more. Does anyone have any suggestions of what I can do at home to relieve the pain? I plan on buying a gel heel cap to put in my shoe to at least get some relief. Thanks for your help.
