Plantar Fascitis--Whats the next step

Posted by Aims on 10/04/01 at 16:50 (062238)

I have been suffering from EXTREME heel pain for 10 months now. I injured my heel after a long walking trip to Disney. I have tried several NSAIDS and Cortisone injections and a night splint, as well as ICE,MASSAGE, and ORTHOTICS. Nothing seems to help. The pain is getting worse--spreading up to my ankle. My Podiatrist is out of ideas. What else can I do to alleviate this pain? X Rays 3 months ago revealed that there is no bone spur YET, but I'm afraid one will develop. Is surgery an option?

I'd appreciate a response..thank you.

Surgery is an option but ESWT is much better for your chronic painful foot
