I love my Tom's and have a huge Tom's collection.
However, the last time I wore my Tom's was walking to and from the Fort Worth Dog show and parking lot, I suffered a huge plantar fasciitis attack. I went to an orthopedist first, the same one who solved my toe problem, but after three visits, I still couldn't walk without pain.
I went to North Dallas Pain and Wellness, with all my pain issues, and they resolved them. Hand grip pain, knee pain and plantar fasciitis. I finally got the courage to try the Toms again last week, and no pain!
However, now I'm suffering some back / hip pain. After I got back from Portland I was 2" off, and now am down to 1/3" off.
The things I think helped the most -- Physical Therapy -- I couldn't do most of the exercises I started, and now have full range of motion, stem therapy in the knees, and ultrasound in the feet.
