Don’t struggle any more with moving around or accomplishing basic tasks. Heel pain or plantar fasciitis is one of the commonest conditions seen at the foot and ankle clinic. Please read our media article on ‘healing heels’. Most of the time, this can initially be managed with stretches, cushioning of the foot and activity modification.
The majority of patients are expected to get better with time. In some patients, symptoms persist or return and further treatment may be necessary.
There can be a variety of treatment approaches when symptoms are not improving, which can include injections, ultrasound treatment, open surgery to release the fascia to name a few.
In the last few years, Dr Tan has been using an endoscopic (keyhole) release of the fascia for treatment of chronic plantar fasciitis with good success. This can also be combined with a radiofrequency coblation of the fascia through the same minimally invasive procedure.
