PF, without heel spurs

Posted by Lisa C. on 9/29/00 at 09:58 (029405)

It seems every PF post I read involves a case of heel spurs. I don't have them (yet), just a stubborn case of bilateral PF that's never really gone away despite 2+ years of treatment. I've tried all options except surgery and ESWT, which I've never hear of until I came across this site. Two DPM's have suggested endoscopic plantar fasciotomy as the probable next option. How helpful/harmful would this procedure be? Thanks for your input!

Learn all you can about ESWT before you even consider surgery.
