Dr. Larry Benson is treating plantar fascitis.
It's marked by pain in heel and sole of foot. Pain is worst first thing in the morning and upon weight bearing.
There is no "cure" so rest, ice, arch supports and gel shoe inserts can help. The biggest thing is special exercises each morning.
See your doctor if stretching, ibuprofen and arch supports fail to relieve the symptoms.
