Plantar Fasciitis surgery - no thanks!

Walking to the tube today (for non-brits, the tube is the same as the underground or subway or whatever you call it in your country), I felt a slight twinge in my foot - could it be plantar fasciitis again? I hope not as that kept me from running for a long long time.

Well obviously I'm going to try to take it easy and make sure I don't aggravate it, but in any event I looked up plantar fasciitis on youtube, and found a good reason to make sure that my PF doesn't get so bad that it needs an operation.

The funny thing is that this kind of plantar fasciitis surgery is described as 'minimally invasive'. Looks painful to me!!

If you're squeamish, do not watch...

Hi Steve,

In fact I've done a bit of reading about it - it seems to make sense, but it also sounds rather like the Atkins diet...

Anyway, one of the bits of the paleo diet which does seem to make sense is to restrict processed foods - which is what I'm trying to do now...

Thanks for your comment!
