What was the Ailment?
"Dull and mild" to severe pain in the arch of my foot.
Why do I think this happened?
Too much running on the balls of my feet up all the freaking hills where I live.
What was my treatment?
1.5 weeks of the following:
- Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation
- Anti-Inflammatory Meds (3x200mg/day)
- Daily Massage with hand-held massager
- Put the sandals away for now
- Tried not to walk barefoot so I wore an old pair of high arch running shoes around the house
- Wore a foot brace to bed to keep my arch neutral
- Wore at least 2 pairs of socks with my dress shoes to give additional support to my arch
