Pain at the area where the band of tissue referred to as the plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot inserts into the heel bone. Too much tension brings on pain. Wearing flat shoes or going barefoot on hard surfaces can be some of the causes that bring this pain. Do not let it linger too long. Can last for months. Pain mostly when standing up ...Read more
Ask your sugeon: I am kind of surprised this question would be asked after the surgery and not before. All doctors have different protocols. You did not mention if you are on crutches, in a cast, in a splint, allowed to walk? Did you have the plantar fascia cut? Was a bone spur resected as well? All this info would be needed to know. Without knowing I would tell you 6-8 weeks. But that depends on many variables.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: I would recommend that you try conservative treatment first before you consider surgery. Oral anti-inflamatories and steroid injections, custom orthotics, ultasound treatments and streching can be very benificial in trating plantar fasciitis. Only 5% of my patients need surgery for plantar fasciitis. Most patients respond well to conservative treatment.See 4 more doctor answers
Yes: When all other measures have been exhausted, surgery for plantar fasciitis may be indicated. Surgery involves release of the plantar fascia itself. This can be done by an open procedure with one of several incision approaches or endoscopically. The procedure chosen by a surgeon is based on preference and patient selection criteria.See 7 more doctor answers
Usually.: The more you can do together, the better: #1: supportive shoes. #2: firm inserts or orthotics. #3: oral antiinflammatories (check with your doctor for dosing). #4: stretching your foot and calf. #5: icing (10 min at a time). You may also need physical therapy or cortisone injections, or eswt if available in your area. Very few people go on to surgery, but it is a possible treatment.See 4 more doctor answers
Last resort: Normally this is a last resort since this is caused by improper biomechanical support. Injections, taping, orthotics and stretching exercises are often successful. Surgery to remove spur and release tension on plantar fascia can be considered if other measures do not work. Diagnosis should be re-evaluated first. Surgery if often but not always successful.See 4 more doctor answers
I have surgery scheduled for plantar fasciitis this Friday but would like a second opinion. I have tried everything my doctor had suggested.
Second opinion: That is a viable option. You wrote in to the health education portion of health Tap. We can not provide a second opinion. Heath Tap Concierge and Prime offer medical advice/ treatment. However, to allow for direct physical examination - consider seeing a podiatrist or orthopedic surgeon in your area.See 1 more doctor answer
Would you recommend PRP or surgery for chronic plantar fasciitis/fasciosis & a spur that hasn't responded to orthotics, PT, steroid injection, taping, stretching?
I have used: Prp and traditional surgery for fascitis that doesn't respond. Prp is expensive and not covered. May try endoscopic plantar fasciotomy.See 6 more doctor answers

Midfoot bone spurs - are a cause of overpronation and plantar fasciitis? My running progress is hindered by foot issues, should I get surgery?
