Ok, this isn't about fascism. Anybody have a this problem from riding? I have been doing a lot of
riding this winter and never have I had the heel pain and arche problem.

The shoes are old but fine.

I've had pf on and off for a few years. I don't think it has anything to do with riding, though.
Riding is about the only thing I CAN do without foot pain.

Do you have shoes with stiff soles? If not, it can be caused by riding. However, it's usually caused
by walking with shoes with inadequate arch support.

hey bob... i had this problem about a year ago... right after i quit riding (you shouldn't ride on
ice at night... may lead to injuries and repairs)... and i don't know about anyone else... but when
i had it there were times when i couldn't stand up... so it's not a minor problem that'll just go
away in a day or two

basically it's an arch support problem... either get some good shoes or try those dr. scholls insole
things... worked for me

it helped to wear shoes as much as possible... since you don't get any support in bare feet

especially look at hiking shoes or something similar... the pair i have right now kicks ass...
literally... they're steel toe/plate

and if that doesn't help after a month or two... see a chiropractor... if you can still walk

I didn't get the inflamation from riding, but from bad shoes. I saw my doctor, and he recommended a
daily message with a tennis ball, or some such, which didn't work. My doctor injected the
inflamation with cortisone, and that cleared the problem right up!

I've known people to put up with the pain for years. About the only time mine didn't give me trouble
was when I was on the bike, I even took to the bike, rather than walk.

I had it for about a year but it was not caused by riding. Depending on how severe it is, it can be
debilitating and if you do not take care of it then it can get worse. I did a ton of research on my
own to find a "cure". What worked for me was:

1) Always wear shoes, even around the house. New Balance and Merrell were the best for me.
2) Fill a 2 liter soda bottle with water and freeze it. Every night, or after any intensive
activity, roll the frozen bottle under your foot from the toes to the heel for 20-30 minutes.
3) Take ibuprofen every night before hitting the sack.
4) Before getting out of bed in the morning, stretch your arch by pulling your toes up - use a
towel or rope.

There a lot of info about this on the net. There does not appear to be any magical cure. Mine went
away after almost a year but I'd probably still have it if I did not take steps to allow it to heal.

These are excellent tips and I appreciate the input. My experience also indicates that it came from
other sports and not riding. The riding has been actually good for it.

Stretching seems so strange for a foot, but that does seem to help as does the ice. The Liter bottle
ice is a great suggestion.

Thanks, Bob

I got it a couple of times jumping rope too much.

The spiel I got from my doc was that the tendon that runs from the ball of the foot to the heel can
only take so much and enough repititive stress makes it start to sort of fray and....bingo...
