I have had plantar fasciitis in both feet for almost 1.5-2 years now. I have flat feet, so I now have orthotics, do calf and foot stretches, ice my feet occasionally, and use Skechers Shape Ups (rocker bottomed shoes). I bought a night splint but it prevents me from sleeping so I don't use it. The pain got a lot better but has plateaued since then.

I walk and stand for my Mon-Fri. job and I still get burning and discomfort which worsens as the day goes on. I am trying to sit as much as possible and I am having Registered massage therapy for my feet every week, but the burning and discomfort has not gone away. On top of that I need to exercise, so I am speedwalking on the treadmill 1-2 times a week.

I have been told by the doctor at the Foot and Ankle clinic that I may just have to live with it.

My co-worker's husband had saline injections into his feet done by a naturopath for plantar fasciitis, but I do not want to take that kind of risk...

Does anyone have any advice or thoughts?
