I agree with that take AND dry needling of the calf and lower leg with electric stimulus over 2 months helped reduce my symptoms by 95%.

It's a good idea to consider arch support when purchasing a new pair of shoes but orthopedic insoles can get rid of all walking feet problem

The muscles of your lower leg all insert into your foot, pulling your foot in each of the uncountable directions you can make. When the muscles are in knots (spasms) they are pulling your foot one way, and you are trying to move it in the opposite direction. For example, your tibialis anterior muscle runs along the outside of your shinbone and inserts into the long bone of your arch. This muscle causes your foot to roll to the outside, lifting your arch and big toe up off the ground.

Meanwhile, the peroneal muscles (there are 2 of them) run along the outside of your lower leg and insert into the outside of your foot AND the long bone (tarsal) on the inside of your foot (at your arch). These muscles lift up the outside of your foot and cause you to roll in toward your arch. When the muscles are tight they are pulling your foot bones in two different directions, causing pain in your arch. Rubbing your arch won't help, only releasing the lower leg muscles will stop the pressure.

Your calf muscles merge into your Achilles tendon and pull up on your heel bone. This causes your arch muscle to be pulled backward, so now your arch is being pulled in three different directions. You can see how this causes pain, and why the muscles need to be released in order to stop the problem. There's a lot more to this story, but it would take up too much time to share it here.

You can see some self-treatments for these muscles by going to my Instagram page (@JulstroMethod) and by going to my websites. The self-treatments work, and they are easy to do. They'll get you back on the road again, and you'll know how to stop the pain fast!

I currently have plantar fasciitis.. some good info on this thread, but does it really matter if you have off the shelf insoles vs custom ones to treat plantar fasciitis?

Im now almost 10 years into Plantar F in both feet. I haven't run in years as a result. I had / have a severe case, which has resolved enough for most days to be pain free, but I do have a quick shot of pain in the heel every few weeks almost equal to stepping on a nail. Fast intense pain, that goes away instantly. Ive had custom and otc orthotics, PT, and night boots/ splints. I would like to caution anyone against a procedure called "Deep Needling". This was the worst experience I have ever had, (well, maybe tied with the root canal without proper medication) The procedure was very painful, and my calf muscles spasmed like crazy for many months after the procedure. They also locked up, and wouldn't release. I had to call 911 while driving my car home from the procedure as I nearly lost consciousness from the pain. The procedure uses 4" long needles with no numbing, that the "therapist" inserts deep into the calf muslce looking for "knots". (I was willing to try anything to beat Plantar F) He would push the needles all around in the calf , causing my leg to spasm and jump off the table on its own at times. Please please please keep very far away from this quackery of a medical procedure. He didn't find "knots" but Im certain he hit plenty of nerves. The PF of course got worse as result of the calf muscle spasms and locking up and pulling. Never had a single calf problem in my life prior to walking into that office.
Good orthotics, take it easy on the stretching- don't get too aggressive or you'll reintroduce tears in the slow healing fascia. Yes you want it to heal in the lengthened position, but there is a fine line between dorsiflexion and repeated tearing of the injury site. Night boot only if it isn't causing pain. Anything that hurts is the enemy. I tried to stretch through pain, and made things worse in the long haul.
Keep the inflammation down as that is just as damaging as over stretching the area.
Wishing you fast recovery.

Muscles are a primary cause of plantar fasciitis, and they are rarely considered when searching for a solution.

I've written an article for www.BeginnerTriathlete.com that goes into a lot of depth to explain the cause and treatment. I'll locate the URL and post it here.

Plantar fasciitis is actually a problem that is caused by the muscles of lower leg that insert into your arch. As these muscles (tibialis anterior, peroneals, and the calf muscles: gastrocnemius and soleus) shorten due to spasms caused by repetitive strain, they pull on the bones of your arch. The tension on the bones pulls them in three different directions,

Just like pulling your hair will cause your scalp to hurt, the muscles pulling on the tendons that insert into your arch will cause your arch to hurt. The treatments for these muscles isn't difficult to do, but they are specific and deep.

I have horrible feet, do a lot of hiking and backpacking on all kinds of terrain, and gave up on store-bought boots a long time ago. I currently wear Essato custom boots, which fit right the first time, and yeah, cost a lot; but the fact that custom boots tend to last ten times as long as store-bought means that they're a bargain in the long run, and the kind of leather they use is highly waterproof. Hard to get that kind of thing nowadays. Expect to wait about six months and pay about eight hundred bucks for the first pair. There are a lot of orthopedic custom shoemaking outfits which can offer a pair of walking shoes or flatlander hunting boots, but very few sources for real hiking boots with good ankle support. It's a different ballgame entirely, if this is in fact what you need. Vasque is pretty flimsy.

True, anything that you do to release the tension in the muscles of the lower leg will be beneficial. The best part of self-treatment is that you can do it anytime, anyplace. That helps if the pain comes during a race or a long training day. I've been teaching athletes how to self-treat via my books ("The Pain-Free Athlete" and "The Pain-Free Triahlete") since 2001, and I'm happy to say it really works.

I have PF in both of my feet and have for many years...going through shoes, arch supports and all the other things you can think. I finally went to see a podiatrist, he took molds of my feet and x-rays. I was given custom orthotics in new balance shoes and a boot to sleep in. What a difference!!!! Slowly but surely this is finally relieving my pain

I also have plantar fasciitis for 2 years. At first I didn't pay attention. But when there was a sharp pain, I couldn't pay attention to it. I tried different shoes, changed the work to walk less. But this didn't solve the problem.
I despaired. But one day I met a man who was cured of plantar fasciitis.
I asked what the secret? He gave me a lot of advices. And one of these tips is fast plantar fasciitis cure book. You can read article where many rules, how to live with this disease and how to overcome the pain. You can read about better insight on this disease, natural ways to manage it, supplements, vitamins, minerals, exercises and etc.
