Both PRP and surgical treatments require a mandatory period of rest and physical therapy in order to be successful. The surgical treatment is not as predictable as other types of surgery like knee arthroscopy for a torn meniscus cartilage or a carpal tunnel release, but as a last resort, definitely has a place in the treatment for plantar fasciitis. It will usually take, on average, six to eight weeks to get back to full duty-type activities, but it can sometimes take three to six months depending on what needs to be done. One final note: As with most of the ailments and problems that I see as a physician, the vast majority are preventable. Most of the therapy stretches and strengthening exercises, gradually increasing physical activity/exercise programs, as well as wearing the appropriate fitting and supportive footwear, in addition to maintaining ideal body weight, can prevent plantar fasciitis from happening in the first place which would be what I would recommend as my first line of treatment.

Keeping the affected ankle at a level that is higher than that of the heart, aids in reducing the swelling and pain in the ankle. Some common offenders in the list include Achilles tendinitis, Achilles tendon rupture, septic arthritis, injured ankle or foot, osteoarthritis and even gout. In a non-displaced fracture, the bones are cracked similar to a hairline fracture, but are still attached to the joint. The course of treatment will depend on the severity of the condition. Taking adequate rest and use of painkillers often works to resolve the issue. Kidney Disease: People suffering from kidney problems may experience enema. The patient could also benefit from physical therapy. Banging your feet against a hard surface during an accident can cause sore ankle. Ankle cramps are common to a number of people.
Bone spurs An excessive growth of bone causing pain or limitation of movement. Corns under the foot often result from a prominent metatarsal bone. The most severely affected joints often require a replacement artificial joint or fusion surgical stiffening. Various operations are utilised, ranging from bone removal to the “tilting” of bones into a better position to alleviate the problem. We have a compiled a list of common conditions which can be successfully treated by an operation. We have produced a number of advice leaflets for common surgical procedures. There are over 130 different procedures recorded for treating this condition. Smaller bunions can also develop on the outside of the little toe joint, these are known as Tailors bunions and are also treated surgically using similar techniques.
