When I get an attack of PF, I do a lot of stretching during the day -
standing an arm lengths from the wall and then with my legs stretched lean
towards said wall. Or standing with one leg in front of the other, bend the
front leg and keeping the other stretched - I do this continually during the
day. I also massage my feet using a ball - a golf or baseball does the
trick. Plus I ensure my metatarsals gets pushed back into place as they
tend to take the strain when the heel is sore.

This has been one of the most helpful threads on Strathspey in a long time!
Thanks, all, for some great recommendations.
I've been dealing with PF since TAC summer school last August. I stopped
wearing ghillies about three years ago, as they hurt my bunions too much by
scrunching my toes together. I've been wearing spenco pads in ballet
slippers, which is definitley more comfortable.
But now the Plantar Fasciitis has made it very difficult to stand for long
periods of time in thin shoes during dance classes. Even though I start out
feeling ok, by the end of two hours it hurts a lot.
Especially when I'm teaching and don't get to dance much.
Perhaps one of these dance shoes will help.
