How is plantar fasciitis treated?

The vast majority of people with plantar fasciitis—more than 95%—will have their heel pain resolved without surgery. However, the condition does not fix itself. You may be concerned that your doctor will tell you to stay off your feet and give up your activities. Most people would rather just live with the pain than do that! Doing nothing isn’t the answer, though. That choice will only make your heel pain worse. You need intentional care.

Treatment begins with the appropriate diagnosis by your podiatrist at Podiatry Associates, P.C. Next, a treatment plan will be designed for you that might include strappings, custom orthotics, physical therapy, stretching, and in rare cases, injections. After a while, your heel pain will resolve, and you’ll be able to resume the activities you enjoy. The key is early treatment. Contact Podiatry Associates, P.C. in Castle Pines, Cherry Creek, and Parker, CO to see how we can help your heels recover.
