Different patients will of course have differing degrees of pathology, and on top of that – habits and lifestyle. This means that in turn, Patients will respond differently to treatments in their own way. So the simple question of how long the recovery for plantar fasciitis will be is varying in nature by default. Studies have shown that many patients (up to 90%) have had treatment success with non surgical measures, with the remaining percentage opting for surgery only after all conservative options have been exhausted.
But as a general rule of thumb, a traditional treatment will usually begin with a 6 week period of a patient led rigorous and consistant regime (icing, stretching, NSAID therapy, strapping and taping). Day to day activities will need to be modified during this period and extra care and attention will also need to be paid to the choice of foot wear. After the initial 6 week period, the Plantar Fasciitis should be somewhat relieved and the pain should have subsided, although this 6 week period may need to be extended depending on the patients individual needs. Reluctant cases will need to go for further evaluation and can be possibly be treated with injections and/or immobilization in a cast or walker boot but your doctor will advise you of any treatments that you may need.
