Okay, the no-running thing is making me batty. Instead, I'm lifting, cycling (properly, thanks to you guys) and gettin' it on with the elliptical. I might be insane soon. Any suggestions for alternative strengthening and/or cardio exercise that won't aggravate plantar fasciitis?<br><br>
Many thank-yous. <img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif"><img alt="smile.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/smile.gif">

Ugh! Sorry you are dealing with this. Did your Dr. give you any exercise restrictions? With my foot injury which was basically acute PF I was restricted from any weight-bearing exercise, and it all hurt too much anyway. I swam, water ran, took spinning (although standing hurt) and cycled indoors and out.<br><br>
Some yoga poses aggravated it, but pretty much all pilates was do-able.<br><br>
You might get more responses & ideas in one of the other forums? I know there's a PF thread or two in the Side Line.

There is a website, I believe its <a href="http://heelspurs.com/_intro.html" target="_blank">http://heelspurs.com/_intro.html</a><br><br>
Its all about PF and there is a ton of good information there. Not sure about exercise recommendations, but lots of good info anyway. You might want to check it out.

I haven't been following your treatment, Divine one, so forgive me if I'm repeating things...have you tried Active Release Therapy? That, combined with ultrasound, was miraculous for me.<br><br>
As for other exercise, I don't know. I was stupid and insisted on running through mine and then gave up everything for a while. I would think that water running (though boring as hell, so I'm not sure how much it will help your sanity) would be a great idea.

Thanks, everyone. . . .the PT includes deep-tissue massage; I'm not sure if that's the same thing as ART or not. The main exercise restriction is no running.<br><br>
Bah.<br><br>
My doctor said elliptical and bike, but I can't imagine he'd object to swimming. Have not consulted him on sex. <img alt="biggrin.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/biggrin.gif"><br><br>
I'll check out the linky and ask the PT tonight about water running. Much appreciated!

Swimming and water running for sure.<br><br>
My friend has a bad case of it right now and she is off running for about six weeks (at least). <img alt="sad.gif" src="http://files.kickrunners.com/smilies/sad.gif">

When I was pregnant with #1, I did some pool running. I was going as slow as molasses up and down the swim lane, and the gym radio suddenly started playing "Eye of the Tiger." I almost drowned because I started laughing so hard. I can't even think about pool running without giggling now.
