Looking at a new thread of yet another fellow-runner suffering from Plantar Fascitis I was going to recommend some Sorbothane heel inserts, both to provide extra cushioning where it hurts, but also to raise the heel slightly to relieve tension.
Then made me wonder about all these runners who have gone over to either Vibram barefoot or zero drop type shoes. Do they suffer a lesser risk of PF or is it actually higher or has no effect at all?
Probably someones already done an extensive study and I'm just to lazy to find it, but I'd be interested to learn of any instances where runners have found it helps or worsens their PF to try or use different heel drops.
Purely idle curiosity on my part, not suffering myself, not atm anyway, TG
