OK...I know what you are thinking...WHAT??? I am serious here! 4 weeks ago I went to a stylist who specializes in curly hair to save my curls from the Brazilian blowout damage...ok I am getting off track. 

Any how, after a great cut, I asked how I could get my curls to look so nice everyday. She then gently recommended 3 products to use in my hair and in what sequence. Now the only reason I bought all 3 was because I was so excited to have my curls back! I was a bit skeptical and very tempted to buy only 1 or 2, but I am proud to report..she was right. 

So then in dawned on me...the reason many patients don't heal their heel pain is because they won't buy all 3 products. What I mean by this is we tell our patients to ice and stretch, but many don't do it. We suggest night splints, Powersteps, and sometimes custom orthotics...but sometimes people don't end up getting them. There are many reasons this happens: cost, insurance, misconceptions, etc. The truth of the matter is here at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic we have a protocol that works to get rid of the heel pain...if you follow it. 
I followed it and got rid of my plantar fasciitis while still training for the Disney Wine and Dine Half Marathon!

So next time you go to the doctor for anything, listen carefully, take notes and go home and do ALL the suggested treatments. Don't be tempted to just pick and choose a few...we all lead busy and hectic lives, but your health deserves priority #1!!!
