Thanks for the ART suggestion. There are even a few docs near me that have training in the technique. I fired off an e-mail to the main office in Colorado regarding my situation to see if they thought it would work...but I've already planned on getting second/third opinions so this might be another avenue to explore. Thanks again!!

I use an elastic bandage self adhesive tape and tape around my feet starting just below the ball of my feet and through the arch. This is the only way I can run and still stand on my feet in the morning. No surgery for me.....

Some people have had really good luck with ART - Active Release Technique - a form of chiropractic. Not sure if it would help your particular situation, but here is a link

I just started barefoot running well, today, so I am not in any way an expert but I have read a ton in the last few days and thought you might want to read this: www.americaspodiatrist.com/20

There are posts from people claiming their PF went away when they took off their shoes.

Who knows might be all hype but I would try everything before doing surgery. Scar tissue is a permanent condition.

Have you gone to a doctor, if so what is their suggestion for treatment?

Foot Surgery isn't easy. I am just 2 weeks out after having tendon surgery repair done on my left foot - I won't be running again mostly likely until end of April or beginning of May. I would check into all options of treatments before doing surgery.

Tarsal Tunnel is like Carpal Tunnel in the hands, only it is in the feet. I'm just torn as to what to do. I want the pain to go away (I had a milder case of PF 5 years ago and with cortisone and stretching and orthotics it went away) and I want to get back to my usual level of activity...and of course running.

I'm curious what tarsal tunnel syndrome is?

I have mild PF that can be fixed with a few days of rest and ice. I am sorry that your case is so severe. Good luck with your surgery.

I have a combination of Plantar Fasciitis and Tarsal Tunnel syndrome, and basically my only recourse is surgery if I ever hope to get back to running and doing anything but cycling and eliptical (ugh!). Has anyone else out there had this surgery and how was your recovery. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
