Am I qualified for plantar fasciotomy?
Patients typically qualify for fasciotomy if they have tried conservative treatments such as anti-inflammatory medicine or arch support for approximately 9-12 months, without achieving pain relief.
Only a podiatrist can tell you whether you qualify for this procedure or not. Generally, the following patients may benefit from plantar fasciotomy:
- those who suffered severe burns
- obese patients
- athletes who suffered severe impact injuries
- people who have been bitten by snakes
