Your Treatment Options for Plantar Fasciitis May Not Involve Surgery

If you have heel pain that continues down the underside of your foot, you might have plantar fasciitis. Because it can be very painful and stop you in your tracks, you more than likely want to get it treated. However, many people live with the pain because they are scared of surgery. But what if we tell you that you might not have to undergo surgery to treat your heel pain?

The fact of the matter is that most people who are treated for plantar fasciitis don’t have to go through surgery. At Podiatry Associates, less than three percent of our patients require surgery for plantar fasciitis. We know most people don’t want to undergo surgery, which is why we also offer other plantar fasciitis treatments such as physical therapy, stretching, orthotics in the shoes, and special shoes to help your heels recover—getting you back to the activities you love.

For help relieving your heel pain, contact our Parker or Castle Pines podiatry offices to schedule an appointment with one of our caring and experienced podiatrists. You can reach us at 303-805-5156 or online at
