SYMPTOMS AND TREATMENTS
The heel quickly becomes painful and swollen, and walking is difficult. Footwear becomes uncomfortable and creates difficulties at each step. Over time, swelling increases and creates concern in patients. Changes are especially prominent in younger women wearing high heeled shoes!
After orthopedic ultrasound examination of the heel, non-operative treatment, with the use of orthopedic pads and physical therapy, is initially recommended. The application of so-called blockades, i.e. anesthetic injection and corticosteroids is sometimes considered, to reduce inflammation and pain. In conservative treatment, pulsating magnetic therapy with the use of autologous conditioned plasma is recommended! There is a noticeable improvement in most cases, as soon as after a few treatments.
For resistant cases of this condition, an operative treatment is reserved!
