    As a plantar fasciitis sufferer, I’ve taken my interest to create a little plantar fasciitis section on my hobby Web site. One curious aspect of plantar fasciitis has intrigued me: how plantar-fasciitis-afflicted NBA players like Pau Gasol and Joakim Noah can get back on the floor so fast while the rest of us struggle for a cure. I talked with Dr. Jeffrey Ross, Associate Clinical Professor in the Baylor College of Medicine, who works with pro athletes, and he has an interesting and instructive outlook. In case they might be of interest to others who are afflicted, I wrote them up in a little article, "Plantar Fasciitis – Fast Bounce Back in the NBA,"
    I hope Dr. Ross’s perspectives and advice help others as it has helped me.

    I had it for about 6 months and that's a problem in NYC when you have to walk everywhere. I went the podiatrist route but that didn't work for me and the boot and the orthotics were expensive (and uncomfortable). I finaly found an orthopedic massage therapist practically next to my office and that worked great. they do icing, stretching (fully body stretches are needed) massage to break down the scar tisue (painful) and taping afterwards which stays on for about a week. Each treatment keeps me going for about 3 weeks and it's gradually going away.
