Physical therapy: Graded physical therapy will be needed to build strength and making sure proper followup as symptoms may not relate entirely to surgery, specifically if affecting both feet. Neuropathic pain may persist indefinitely and a multidisciplinary approach may be needed, involving pain specialist, podiatrist and psychologist aside from physical therapy.
