Q How long will it take for my heels to be pain free?
There is a lot of variability in this, but at Prairie Path Foot and Ankle Clinic we find that most of our patients will be at least 80% improved within 3 visits and for us that is about 4-6 weeks. This is dependent on your diagnosis; plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendinitis, calcaneal apophysitis; as well as how long you have been in pain, your age, and your activity level. The biggest key to getting better is how much effort our patients put into their care. It's simple.... patients who follow their treatment protocol, get better faster.
