I've had plantar fasciitis since January of this year, culminating in a rupture about a month ago. I have good health insurance. Nevertheless, this is quickly becoming one of the most expensive injuries I've ever had (second only to unreimbursed expenses for arthroscopic knee surgery and PT). So far, the PF has cost: Gel Inserts That Didn't Help: $40 Change in Running Shoes: $100 Change in Tennis Shoes: $80 2 Pairs Superfeet That Helped Some: $68 Another Change in Tennis Shoes: $100 Four Co-Pays for Podiatrist: $100 Night Splint: $120 Air Cast: $175 Custom Orthotics: $300 Prescription NSAID: $20 Total: $1103 Well, at least it is finally getting better . . .
