Wondering if anyone has had plantar fasciitis or foot pain they think may have been caused by their afo? I have a carbon fiber afo that I have been wearing more often and am starting to have some foot pain and wonder if it is the afo causing it. My son had a football injury to big toe and was given a turf toe plate (very similar to the part of my afo that goes under the foot) which caused a severe case of plantar fasciitis. It took 8 months of Dr appts, PT, orthotics, night splints, exercises, icing, etc before he could walk without pain. I guess I should follow up with the place I got my afo from.
