After one of the most disappointing seasons of my 19-year running career, I decided to look into more drastic forms of treatment for the plantar fasciitis I’ve been tolerating for close to 4 years. I have become a pro at taping and icing. I have had 2 different sets of custom orthotics (and a couple over the counter pairs), 3 rounds of Shock Wave Therapy (3 sessions for each round) from ’07-’09, 2 shots of a light steroid with an anti-inflammatory, religious usage of the Strassburg Sock and countless massages. What else could I do? Surgery?
