Dear mj,

it sound as if the physio is probably correct. The correct person to see next is a podiatrist - they can often control the condition with shoe inserts adn night splints. If that does not help you should see an orthopedic surgeon - he could give you a cortisone injection into the area which often relieves the pain very nicely
