Self-Cure for Plantar Fasciitis
The experts tell us that 90% or more of plantar fasciitis sufferers can self-cure it, on their own. By “self-cure,” the experts mean all the things you can do yourself without having to get specialized, doctor-moderated medical intervention including such as Cortisone Injections, Surgery or other, Minimally Invasive Treatments. It’s not a quick self-cure. It takes patience and perseverance.
A common estimate is that self-cure can be achieved within a year, but the projected timelines vary:
* According to a news release by the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, “approximately 90 percent of plantar fasciitis patients get better with exercises or non-operative techniques over a nine-month span.”
* “With self-cure treatments, the condition usually clears up within 24 months,” according to the Mayo Clinic.
* Another source says 80 percent will get better within 10 months.
Among the many self-cure options are suggested, those most recommended by doctors include:
The long timeline for self-cure “..causes frustration for everybody,” says one orthopedic surgeon. “Most people want a quick cure, and unfortunately a lot of people selling this or that will capitalize on it.”
Self-curing is the first line of activity against plantar fasciitis before considering more serious medical intervention, but that doesn’t mean you have to do it all by yourself. You can use the information from Plantar Fasciitis Solutions and Web sites linked from here as a springboard. Physical therapists can also help you optimize your results. Doing it right can be a tricky proposition without expert guidance, and that’s what Plantar Fasciitis Solutions is all about. I talk to the experts. When I use “the editorial we” in dispensing observations or advice, that means the expert guidance is coming not from me but from the people who really know what they are talking about.
