    You are very right. I still have pain in both my feet (especially my left foot) but, after trying to eat a clean lifestyle I have pain relief finally! I worked out for the first time yesterday and my foot definitely started to hurt but...I'm going to keep at it. I'll just wear a night splint through the night and make sure to do the healing exercised. I've had tendinitis for 2 years now and it's finally getting a bit better. I was only 24 when diagnosed! I'm about 100 lbs over weight soooo that would be a huge reason why...

    As an advisor for a health care company, I recommend cold treatment, as often as possible, to the foot to reduce pain and inflammation. By doing this you are restricting the blood flow to the injured area. Once you feel that the pain and swelling has decreased substantially, we then recommend stimulating the blood flow through the normal tissue. (Stimulating blood flow through swollen tissue/muscle, etc., only makes it worse). These treatments should be done 20min at a time. It is recommended once feeling better from these treatments to continue use to prevent reinjury

    Hi, I know it's been a while since you posted this, but how long did you have your condition before seeking treatment, and how long did it take for you to see improvement? I injured my PTT in June and started physically therapy in August, but my condition seems to to stay the same or periodically worsen.

    I am considering Dr Levine. How was your recovery? How do you feel? Would you still recommend this Dr?

    This is fine for normal flat feet, but no amount of barefoot training will restore laxity to a stretched out tendon. Believe me, I've tried and made the condition worse.

    You can also trade Rocket League items there. As far as I know, they have long accepted a large number of Rocket League events at the highest price in the same business. Have a stable Rocket League item source and enough inventory for you to exchange.

    I have heard people that are worse off with inserts The hard plastic puts too much upward pressure on it. Look into BFST wraps. They stimulate the blood flow through that area to help heal the damaged tissues. Dont forget about cold compression. Can really help even if not a fresh injury. Worth looking into if you are looking for another form of treatment.

    I've seen a few people get worse with inserts and I've seen a lot more get better with inserts. If the insert is too high in the arch it is uncomfortable. When it is uncomfortable a person chooses to use the posterior tibial tendon more to raise the arch. This is how inserts could make the problem worse. The tendon can be "rested" if the insert helps the tendon. An injured tendon needs rest. The heel cup of the device should be higher on the medial (inside) and lower on the lateral side to help rest the tendon.
