Plantar fasciitis treatment

Posted by Chuck on 11/10/02 at 20:16 (099745)

On my first visit to my foot doctor (who is a surgeon) he taped my foot. I asked him if I should be off the foot and he said no that he wanted me using it. On the second and third he gave me a cortizone shot and a prescription for celebrex. It is no better and ordered me an orthotic support on the third visit. It has been over two months since he ordered it and it has not arrived. My foot hurts pretty badly.
Am I getting good care?
Thanks!!!

I think you are getting standard care. If the orthotic does not help you our then be careful about surgical options. This is where is gets tricky.

If you are waiting over 2 months for an orthotic that is unacceptable. 2 to 3 weeks is the standard with some facilities doing them faster.
