Re: plantar fasciitis

What you doctor has recommended is certainly an accepted method of treatment, but is not the only one.
Night splints are available in some pharmacies as well as on the Internet. The purpose is to keep the plantar fascia stretched while sleeping so it doesn't contract and hurt when first stepping down in the morning. If you can accomplish this with what you describe, then that is good.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
