Can plantar fasciitis be permanently cured such that it never recurs?
Plantar fasciitis can be completely cleared but in some cases can become chronic in nature.
Possible treatments for plantar fasciitis include:
- Physiotherapy with PF or calf stretching
- ESWT treatments
- Cortisone injections
- Prolotherpy/PRP injections
- Debridement of the tissue through a minimally invasive procedure
- Calf muscle releases
Depending on the severity of your symptoms and what has been previously attempted, your doctor might try one or others of these treatments.
Hope this helps.
