Plantar Fasciitis Patient
Sandy - Plantar Fasciitis Patient
Several years ago, I woke up one morning and experiencing just excruciating pain in both of my heels. It literally felt like there was a knife jammed up in my heels, I could barely walk and I remember vividly because it was the day before Thanksgiving. I called Trina here at the Huber Heights office at about 8 o’ clock in the morning and I said oh my God I think I might have fractured my feet, I’ve been exercising a lot, I’ve been on the treadmill and I can’t even walk and in my job as a salesperson, obviously I wear a lot of high heels and I though, oh my gosh I’m not going to be able to walk, I’m not going to be able to do anything. So fortunately, Trina got me in at 8:30 that morning and Dr. Polansky assured me that my feet were not broken, that it was actually plantar fasciitis and actually I think I recall his exact words were “Sandy, you have plantar fasciitis the size of the state of Las Vegas, Nevada” and I went in at that particular visit and he gave me a steroid injection in both of the heels, of course they numbed it first and they proceeded for the next eight weeks for me to come in for weekly steroid injections and put a walking cast on both of my feet because I told Dr. Polansky I didn’t want to be off work, I wanted to be able to work, what could be we do to give me the best relief in the shortest amount of time period that I could work and he assured me that I would not leave the office that day until my pain was significantly reduced and I am happy to say that two sets or orthotics later, I haven’t had any pain in the plantar fasciitis and I have been wearing my orthotics in both my tennis shoes as well as my pumps or high heels for ladies and thanks to Dr. Polansky, Dr. Jones and Dr. Swan, they’ve done a great job not only with me but with my son as well with some toe issues that he has had.
