regress and dissapear on own

Posted by daveys on 4/01/03 at 22:00 (115135)

I have been diagnosed w plantar fascitis by xray.
With stretching, arch supports, ect. can this growth go away on it's own?
Thank you for this service.

Please take the time to read Scott's Heel Pain Book to understand the treatment for plantar fasciitis. Most plantar fasciitis is cured via a combination of conservative modalities. How those modalities are combined and applied can make a big difference in the outcome. It is also good not to wait too long to begin definitive treatment.
