HI I got Plantar Fasciitis for more than 6 months and still I cannot start my training - just hitting the racket in the air is kind of getting boring... I know this is not a medical forum, and of course I have talked with my doctor and on my own with a therapist, and talked with different people about it, but they all state different things, so I would like to here if anybody have expericences with speeding up the heeling process? My doctor just gave me the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression Elevation) concept, and then it should all be fine. On the other hand my therapist stated that RICE is only relevant just after the damaged happen, and not for the long run. I have tried to put ice underneath my food, but I am not sure whether it helps or not. The thearapist gave me some kind of ultrasound I think it was, but probaly it only made it worse. He also showed me how to tape up my food, which I think help a little. I saw on the internet some strecht exercises, but my therapist believed that the tape thing should be fine and no strech exercises was needed. Some other guy also told me that strechting could make it even worse, as you strech the wounded part!? I can only walk around in my running shoes or badminton shoes and I bought a good heelcup, that I expect also to use when I some day can start to play again. I got a little tip from the professional world, about some NSAID medicine, as it actually is an inflammatory. Does anybody have any experience with that? BTW: I have no problem with weigth, as I am the skinny kind of bodybuild.
