Plantar Fasciitis and arch problems.

omgitsarpg posted:
I've had Plantar Fasciitis for almost a year now. When my doctor diagnosed me with it I had high arches in both my right and my left feet. Today I did the wet foot test and my right foot's arch is a "neutral" arch. my left's is the same as it was a year ago.

Is my right foot's arch collapsed/collapsing? could that be part of what caused my Plantar fasciitis?

Hi Omgitsarpg,

This board is fine but it may take a while to get responses so keep checking back. Our experts will be on the board again next week.

Have you asked your doctor about this?

I don't know the answer to this question, perhaps your doctor or podiatrist knows.....?

What kind of symptoms are you having now?

Take care, Annette

David Maine, MD responded:
Thank you for your post. Anatomic variation can potentially predispose one to foot problems including plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can often be treated with conservative measures including arch support, ice, dorsi-flexion splints, and NSAIDS. I would discuss with a foot specialist - either a podiatrist or an orthopedic foot and ankle specialist. I hope that helps. Good luck.

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!
