Plantar Fasciitis - It's A Real Pain In The Heel

April 25, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 125

Plantar fasciitis is not your common topic of conversation at a party, but when you are faced with the heel pain associated with plantar fasciitis, there is little else you can think about.

But what happens if you have had the plantar fasciitis, including the heel spur that is sometimes associated with it, and you have no more pain? Wouldn't you then think that there might be someone at the gathering that might benefit from your experience?

Ice Breakers For Starting Conversations About Plantar Fasciitis

Here are some statements that you might think about using to start an interesting dialog about plantar fasciitis heel pain.

  • Did you hear the one about the guy who went to the podiatrist because he didn't have any heel pain?
  • I'm becoming increasingly worried that there is not enough pain in my life.
  • Hey, did you hear that my heel pain took a hike?
  • Do you know what a pain plantar fasciitis is? Fortunately, mine ain't heel no more.

Heel Spurs Are Not The Same As The San Antonio Spurs

Are you familiar with the Spurs basketball team? Heel spurs are different.

But what does this have to do with beginning a conversation about your feet?

Good question. Basketball and other exercises can cause problems with ones lower extremities. One of the more common problems is spurs, not the San Antonio kind.

This can happen when you have poor foot mechanics. Excessive running or walking can cause plantar fasciitis if you don't have good shoes to correct the way your foot turns as it strikes the ground. Then, if you don't take steps (pun intended) to correct the problem that is causing the discomfort, it can lead to spurs.

Heel spurs are extremely painful.

If you have these bony outgrowths, you will be boring the other guests at the party with your whining and complaining about your pain. That is if you can even get yourself to the party because your hurt so badly.

Hope For Your Hurting Tootsies

Now, this is where the rubber meets the road. It is possible to get relief so that your conversations don't have to center around the negative suffering you are going through.

Get your feet set solidly on the ground with excellent shoes. The kind of shoes you will want are ones that have the proper support for your arches. This can be done with inserts, or great footwear, or both.

You will need to go to a specialty store, one that carries shoes for folks with your problem. Take your wallet. If you are accustomed to buying shoes at a cut rate outlet or department store, be prepared to part with a little (or a lot) more money.

Just do it! It will pay off in the end, and you will have some really pleasant things to talk about.

The entire story of how I beat the pain of plantar fasciitis can be seen, with suggestions for just the right footwear at Take a few moments to read the story. It could help you to become a better and more positive conversationalist.
