Treating Plantar Fasciitis
Most cases of plantar fasciitis can be treated with non-surgical methods. A treatment plan might include one or more of the following:
- Rest/reduction in activity
- Applying ice to the area
- Changes to more supportive footwear
- Changes in activity levels or exercise routines
- The use of custom orthotics to shift excess weight away from the plantar fascia
- Night splints to extend the plantar fascia overnight and reduce morning heel pain
- OTC anti-inflammatory medications
- Stretches or exercises to better condition the plantar fascia and what it connects to
- MLS laser therapy to reduce pain and accelerate soft tissue healing
In rarer cases, if more conservative methods don’t have a substantial effect in providing relief, we might consider surgery. This might include a minor surgical implant of HyProCure stents, or release of the plantar fascia, among other potential procedures. If surgery does become an option, we will fully discuss all options and what you need to know to make the most informed decision going forward.
