Currently there are many different options for surgically treating plantar fasciits. Options include, plantar fasciotomies, gastroc-recessions, topaz procedures and tenex procedures. The success rate is high with these procedures but so is conservative care. I think anybody contemplating surgical repair of their fascia should schedule an appointment of a second opinion with a heel pain expert. junk removal seattle

Heel Pain in Kids


At Issaquah Foot and Ankle Specialists, we commonly treat kids with heel pain. Often times these are kids in the 8-14 age range who have increasing pain with activities. The majority of these kids are highly active and involved in more than one sport. Kids often don’t have heel pain in the morning or experience much swelling or stiffness. Additionally, often times they have siblings or parents who've had heel pain.

We highly recommend having them evaluated by a physician to diagnose and treat the cause of the condition. X-ray usually gives an accurate cause of heel pain in pediatric patients. The majority of kids we treat can get back to full activities very quickly with a huge reduction in pain in just a few days.
