How to Make a Delicious Caramel (on Your First Attempt!)
simple and effective,very well done !
Hi there,pik 1973,Thanks for your reply but now I'm going to enlighten you are to why you are still in pain..and what I had to endure to be pain free..First of all the tendons are already stretched and your arches will have fallen, next whilst you are asleep Mother Nature attempts to "repair" the damage within the tendons sheath (this happens every night) and when you get up in the morning and put your feet to the floor, the pai is excruciating because you have just "undone" Mother Nature's work to make the sheath better...I had to have devices from the NHS which hold your feet in an upright position that would strap on from the knee and right down to the toes...I had to wear these devices for several months, plus I also had fibreglass ones made too..(none of these devices look particularly good but they cure the problem) then, everyday I had to wear inserts in my boots and still do to this day...you too will have to wear them forever if you want to be painfree...I understand why you made your device nad I by the same token spent a fortune on chirpodists with out any luck...only what I've mentioned before works for you and for me and for everybody...I wish you all the best...kindest regards...xxx
I've been wearing inserts for 3 years, when I was first diagnosed my doctor and physiotherapist told me to roll a frozen bottle or use a rolling pin to stretch the tendons. they always got away from me and I became so frustrated I gave up and started on cortizon injections. this idea while very basic doesn't seem to be available for sale so I took things into my hands so to speak.
that the idea, you place it under your feet and slide (roll) them front to back. its designed to stretch the plantar ligament.
Great job - commercial solutions are not always the answer. - Aussie58
You need to be permanently wearing inserts in your shoes or boots at all times. I have had this disorder for many years and the inserts will keep the pain away as long as you wear them everyday....all the very best....xxx - amwill
Nice idea! So, do you just roll your feet on it? - Penolopy Bulnick
Excellent submittal, anything that is genuinely theraputic and inexpensive gets my vote, well done! - BeachsideHank
