This is more so an injury question & if anyone has experience with it...
So I have flat feet, and that puts a more than normal amount of stress on the Plantar Calcaneonavicular Ligament. It's been aggravated for about a month or two and I feel it hurting the morning after I run (2-3 miles) or especially the day after I jump rope (20-30 minutes).
I'm mainly concerned because I go to Marine Corps boot camp on December 9th (a little over a month away). I want to know my treatment options now to get it back to normal (or close to it). I'm in excellent physical shape right now so I'm not concerned about that, I just don't want to partially tear or fully tear that ligament while in basic.
Any treatment options? I stay off of it as much as possible (no running, body weight lower body exercises, etc). Ice is my friend and I do an ice bath for 10 mins and then stick the foot in the hot tub for 10 mins for probably 2-3 rounds.
My Dad said something about a cortizone shot...?
