Plantar Fascia Release

Plantar Fascia Release

Plantar fascia release is carried out to reduce tension and chronic inflammation to the tendon.

A small incision is made on the inside of the heel. The plantar fascia is then detached from the heel, alternatively small incisions may be made on either side to release tension. Damaged tissue may be removed if your foot surgeon finds some present, alternatively the bone may be smoothed, which allows the plantar fascia to heal under less tension.

You should rest at home for the first two-four weeks following the procedure. Between two-four weeks you can return to work. You should avoid high impact activities until three months postoperative.
