My wife, Becky, has been having sharp pain in her heels for over a year, much more painful on the left than the right foot. She has tried all the standard stuff her Doctor recommended, iceing, heat, stretching, different shoes, etc. None of it has worked. Apparently she has short and fairly non-elastic Achillies tendons. The Doctor now suggests surgery to lengthen the tendons, but we are unable to find anyone who has found noticable relief from this surgery. (The Doctor has not been helpful in this endevor) One gentleman states he heard, after his surgery, that it is about 50-50 on having any noticable relief.
Any information anyone has would be very appreciated!
