    Night splints work quite well. I usually recommend trying that before cortisone.

    Splints werenít even mentioned. Pitch went straight to shots and orthotics.
    Honestly did like the guy much. No bedside manner at all. Talked monotone. Acted like he didnít want to be there. I had lots of questions and he basically cut me off after a few and promptly left the room. I thought he was coming back but the PA came in and said he was done.

    I think Plantar Fascitis and Morton's Neuroma can both be fixed mechanically for those willing to take the necessary steps (pun), especially in the early stages. However, a lot of people seem to prefer surgery and injections etc. There's a neuroma thread with a lot of good advice.

    Morton's can and should be fixed with wide shoes.

    I did.

    Pf though, not sure. I tried many things and finally i had a prp injection which fixed it.

    Appreciate you turning me to the neuroma thread.
    As Iíve gotten older I find doing mechanical fixes, strengthening, rest and the combo of these works best.

    Icing, massage, stretching, wider shoes, toe stretchers, orthotics, PT and maybe the splints are what I'm starting with. Having gone through lots of shots in my lower back for a disc injury, I'm steering clear for the time being and cancelled them. Never really helped my back in the long run.

    With both plantar and Mortonís at the same time, this is less than fun. Onward we go.

    All that stuff you listed will help. Add toe socks to the list for hiking. They really help prevent your toes from mashing together if you're doing a long hike. I did about 7 miles off trail today elk hunting and had toe sock liners under my wool socks. For me it makes a world of difference. I think I bought 3 different thicknesses off Amazon, poly liners, medium cotton, and thicker wool blend. I have found that the liners under regular wool socks do the trick.

    And mortons doesn't disappear overnight, so stick with all the fixes. Especially toe separators in the evening while watching TV. I still use mine occasionally if I ever feel a twinge of discomfort. I think those really helped initially.

    Iíll worry about toe socks down the road. I could barely walk around the house today. Bad flare up of Mortonís and itís incredibly painful. Like canít think straight pain. Going to get the toe separators on order.

    20 minutes with these and 90% of the Mortonís pain is gone. PF still persistent on the left foot. Stretching helps immensely. But this definitely takes time.

    That's good news! I still use the toe separators even though my Morton's has been almost completely gone for a long time. It just feels good to use them after a hard day of hiking or skiing. And it is important I think to stay out in front of the problem and be preventative rather than wait for pain to flare up. Used my toe sock liners under my wool socks all through elk hunting season too. They are a bit of a hassle to put on but I really think they help. Good luck, hope you continue to see improvement!
