Plantar Fascitis/Achilles’ Tendonitis
I first came to see Dr. Giaquinto in July of 2010. I was suffering with low back stiffness, my gait felt crooked, and pain in my left foot. My foot condition started in 2009. My biggest issue was my left foot. I started with Morton’s Neuroma, then I got Plantar Fasciitis, and currently I am dealing with Achilles Tendonitis. Because of these foot problems I am in a lot of pain, have no energy to do anything but get home and put my foot up and ice it. It is hard to wear certain shoes because of the Achilles issue. I love to golf and haven’t been able to do that since 2009, and would love to just go for a walk.
I was treated by a podiatrist for the foot problem. I purchased foot inserts, received cortisone shots, and was sent to do physical therapy twice, and both times it did not help. So in July of 2010, I came to see Dr. Giaquinto for help. Everything was hurting, back, foot, hip, my balance and gait was off. In July of 2010, I started with chiropractor care. Now all my back issues have improved. I am not stiff in the morning and my gait no longer feels crooked. As of August 2011 I still have the Achilles Tendonitis and it is not getting any better. My worst fear was that I was going to have surgery which is an eight week healing process. I would not be able to be off work without pay that long. I saw the flyer about Dr. Giaquinto’s digestive class and decided to attend, thinking my sister would benefit more than myself. I started an enzyme program August of 2011. Never in a million years did I ever think that taking digestive enzymes would heal my foot problem. In the two months that I have worked with Dr. G my foot pain is gone. On October 21st I walk in a five mile walk for breast cancer. I finished the walk pain free in my foot, back and hip. I have so much more energy, I feel healthy again and Dr. Giaquinto is my miracle worker.
