Recovery from Plantar Fasciitis may take short to long periods, depending upon the aggravation of the injury, and the method of treatment being followed.
While conservative treatments for Plantar Fasciitis can take a couple of months for patients to recover, medications can help in relieving the debilitating pain in one or both the heels. Conservative treatments include:
- Physical Therapy, which include stretching exercises
- Wearing Night Splints that can help stretch the arch of the foot and the calf, while sleeping.
- Orthotics, where, heel cups, arch supports, or cushions are prescribed for helping the pressure to be distributed evenly to the feet.
- Surgical treatment and steroid shots are also methods of treatment for Plantar Fasciitis, when there are no other options for recovery.
Use of insoles has become a modern method of treatment for Planar Fasciitis, which has been clinically proven to provide relief not only to the heels, but also to the back, ankle, hip, and knee. The Twin-heel insole, developed by Medicovi has been proven to reduce pain arising out of Plantar Fasciitis and heel injuries, strains and sprains of the ankle and heels, and other types of injuries to the feet and the heel.
