I am not sure if I should post this in the exercise/fitness forum or here...but my questions is..
I am starting to recover from PF, but am finding contradictions in insole solutions. I was fitted for and received custom orthotics-ouch! Dr #2 said "chuck em" they were sending my recovery back. She then said to get supports with a good arch....but they cause my feet and ankles to hurt again! I just received a pair of "amazing Insoles" they are completely different...flat, no arch at all, but they have a liquid they rolls back and forth from the heel to the ball of your foot..feeling pretty good so far. My concern is they have no arch support....this has been the most frustrating injury SO many contradictory opinions...
so I was wondering if any of you had any good thoughts or solutions on the insole controversy!
Thank you your help and suggestions are so much appreciated!

I had trouble with plantar fasciitis for several years...didn't have insurance at the time so I just suffered instead. I started wearing these shoes: Okabashi Brands, Inc. and the first two weeks were agony, but it's been three years and I haven't had any problems at all with plantar fasciitis. You do have to replace them once a year or they get too flat to help though, and they're not exactly stylish, but you might give them a try.

Had fasciatis on one and two fibrosis surgeries on the other foot. Your inserts will be painful when you start wearing them. You should have been advised on how to wear them. I found a certified pedorthist who fitted insoles, recommended "dressy shoes" and tennis which accomodate insoles.

Had bad PF for one year. Got fitted for orthotics and to this day will not exercise without them.

I had it and my orthopedist really emphasized stretching. I got some inexpensive over the counter inserts (still wear them) but the stretching worked within a few weeks.
