    Question Good Foot Specialist?

    I think I may have Plantar Fasciitis on one foot. I have noticed pain for a while but being back home it is really painful as in I can barely walk on it. Argg get me out of this cold weather!!

    I will go wherever in DR for a GOOD specialist. NC is closest, does anyone know of any good ones?

    Try changing which shoes you wear. I get foot probs once in a while from cooking and usually a new pair shoes takes care of it in about a week. I've had sciatica and I think fasciitis. Felt like a needle going up into my heel.

    OK thank you PIB! I have worn sandals for a year so it is the first time I have put a shoe on, so that could be it as well!

    Hey HR,

    No, doubt its that, that there is usually a sports injury from like football, hard to tear just being human.. ,) Most likely the flip flop thingy, I get that too and when I put my sneakers on,,oh baby!! like heaven, huge difference feels so much better. Buy some high end flops or sandals that provide support..Also check the heel of your sneakers or whatever you wear the most of, see how the heel looks, usually shows how you walk and is worn on one side of the heel, try to focus more on your steps if it is..

    If indeed you have that than get some sneakers that give you really good support. I had that and you just have to give it time. When you get up in the morning stretch your tendons and muscles in the foot and leg before walking. Once the foot has warmed up you will move better. This could take up to a couple of months to heal. Stay off the foot as much as possible.

    Shouldn't you be looking for a "bad foot" specialist?

    One thing to consider is that you may naturally twist your foot, as mentioned, which is called pronation. Inserts in shoes can correct that pronation. It shows up as uneven wear on the your shows and can cause stress to your feet. It is very hard to consciously do that yourself.

    True! There is a great line of shoes that I wear called Orthoheel. I have about 10 different pair of sandals that I wore last summer, and when I put on my closed shoes in November I had excruciating pain in one heel. Doc says combo of heel/bone spur and plantar fasciatis. Stretching exercises helped a lot, so did heat and ice, but the shoes made all the difference.
