I have suffered with plantar fasciitis in both feet for years. It got progressively worse until walking was always a painful experience. As a teacher who is always on her fee, pain was a constant, daily experience. I tried inserts, which helped a little but just masked the pain. I did all the traditional remedies…night splints, cortisone shots, sleeves, expensive shoes, Graston, Cold Laser Therapy. A lot of money and a lot of time later, I was still in pain and couldn’t even enjoy hiking, walks on the beach, exercising, or just walking around my house barefoot.
Up until Dr. Dawson started treating me, I had not been to a physical therapist for my plantar fasciitis. I had been to a podiatrist who gave me cortisone shots and wanted to try surgery and a chiropractor who gave me some relief, but not a cure. Since starting my treatment with Dr. Dawson, I experienced immediate relief after each session and a continual lessening of pain with each treatment. I am fully expecting to be symptom-free.
I was so used to being in pain, it was hard to remember what it felt to walk without pain. But when I started to NOT be bothered by the things that usually made my feet miserable (working out, hiking, being on my feet at work, going barefoot), I knew that I finally made the right choice with Dr. Dawson.
Now that my plantar fasciitis is almost resolved, I am back to enjoying an active lifestyle without constant pain. I’m able to work out longer, enjoy miles of walking and hiking, and not have aching feet as soon as I get out of bed. I recommend Dr. Dawson to anyone who does not want to live with their pain any longer!
