Recently I've had really bad heal pain. It generally hurts after I play. It's even worse when I wake up in the middle of the night or in the early morning. I can barely walk on it when the pain is there. Any thought of what it may be? Has anyone had this before? Any remedies? Help!!!!!
I know all about that.
I've had it and its called planter fasciitis
I'ts a killer in the morning.
you have to get the proper orthodics,stretch,or get a cortisone shot and stop playing tennis until it heal at least 5 months. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YRpeiRLPUDw
Stop playing for 5 months? Oh heck no, that's not an option for me haha. Hmmm... who got the hook up on some cortisone? hehe No, but for real, it's been bothering me for some time now, and I can barely walk at night or in the morning.
No, not the Dr. Shoels, go to a good shoe store, the kind that sizes your feet, puts them on a monitor to see where your pressure points are, and they are the ones that can get you a good pair of Orthodics. They are expensive, but well worth it. When you play you also need something that will be tight so your feet don't slip, as that can also be the cause of some of your problems. But at the same time roomy for your toes, otherwise you will create another whole set of problems. Honestly, I have tried a bunch of different shoes, have had heel problems, arch problems etc... and since I made the switch to the Addidas Barricade IIs I have had no problems. I think that is why they are still on the market, despite the fact that Addidias is now on it's 6th version of the shoe.
Everyone giving you good advice.....the bone spur is giving you the inflammation yulanda talks about....if the pain is unbearable you might be needing the shot I speak of but also to heal this you need rest and to prevent this from happening again you need Shoes that will prevent this from happening again.....
