Last summer, I was sporting a knee-high walking boot and hobbling about on crutches with an atypical stress fracture of the navicular. That's podiatrist-speak for "Damn, my foot hurts!" Not to be outdone by the right foot, my left foot has gotten into the narrative and added a whole new set of footnotes. I'm happy to report that the bandaged-acquired blisters are now fully healed, and the laser, ultrasound, massage, ice and Ibuprofen regimen seems to be working its magic: the nasty plantar fasciitis is beginning to abate. The pain associated with this has been unlike anything I've ever endured. It's akin to having a spike driven through the heel; no foolin'.
A final footnote of advice: love your feet, treat them well, support your arches, or feel like h*#@!
