I started to notice a difference around 8 weeks, but this varies from person to person. The usual time frame is 8-16 weeks. I did not change my routine or my lifestyle after the treatment. I continue to wear my night splint, orthodics, stretch a bit during the day.

Kristie: No bed rest required. I went to work the next day but I think the Doctors advise just to take it slow for a few days and some recommend heat and some ice. I really had zero problems with the procedure.
