http://www.richardsonpodiatrycenter.com Most mild cases of foot pain can be treated at home. Conservative treatment would be rest, wearing the proper shoes, taking some anti-inflammatory medication, and not going barefooted. Within three days, if you’re not improved, it’s time to see a podiatrist. Here at Richardson Podiatry Center, after a thorough evaluation, we will determine what you need for the most successful treatment. Treatments that are successful usually involve anti-inflammatory medication, stretching the plantar fascial ligament, and usually some type of orthotic appliance to support the plantar fascial ligament during the day when you’re walking. In treating plantar fasciitis, studies show that up to 98% of patients with plantar fasciitis will be treated successfully with conservative care. Here at Richardson Podiatry Center, we will do a thorough investigation and do what I feel is necessary to give you a successful outcome using conservative treatment measures.
