Hi I have had trouble with my feet since childhood as my feet roll inwards. It is very common in my family. But the last years have been a nightmare, because i not only feel like my feet are being crushed, and hobble out of bed in the morning and find walking very i have hot painful lumps in my achilles tendon above my heel, with a terrible stretching feeling there too. I am in agony! after a short walk i limp along and sometimes i feel i cant walk any further. I have stretching pain in calves. I wonder if the actual "Achilles Tendon pain is part of plantar fasc; or something completely seperate. does anyone else have this problem? i also have crunchy painful knees and painful hip. so i guess this is all down to the misalignment of my feet? All i know is i feel like a cripple everyday!
Taping provides only transient support, with studies 9 , 10 showing that as little as 24 minutes of activity can decrease the effectiveness of taping significantly. Arch taping can be used as definitive treatment or as a trial to determine if the expense of arch supports or orthotics is worth the benefit. Taping may be more cost effective for acute onset of plantar fasciitis, and over-the-counter arch supports and orthotics may be more cost-effective for chronic or recurrent cases of plantar fasciitis and for prevention of injuries. In athletes, arches must be retaped at least for every new game or practice session, whereas an over-the-counter arch support usually lasts a full sports season and a custom orthotic usually lasts for many seasons.
