Heel Pain / Plantar Fasciitis

Just had to post this as I've had some pretty good success with this problem.

Here is what i did:

1) By a step stretch (google it). Keep your calfs stretched as well as hamstrings. Everything on the leg can pull your heel tendons,etc,etc.

2) Go to a podiatrist and get the Cortisone shot and a prescription for Naproxin. The shot doesn't hurt a bit (they freeze your heel).

3) During this time you are on the Naproxin low-dye tape your foot every day. It's really easy to learn how and you'll feel a huge difference fast.

4) Ice your heel every morning and night.
