Re: post Plantar fasciitis surgery

Generally speaking, I tell my patients you get what you pay for. In my practice I use 2 different pre-fabs often. The Viscoped by Bauerfeind and a Gaitor by Tulis. They are not all things to all people, but neither do reading glasses work on everyone.
I usually have the patient walk in either one and see if they like it. Also a good walking shoe susch as the SAS Freetime or a New Balance walking shoe (there are many other good brands) can be very helpful for working on concrete.

You might also try freezing a water bottle and rolling your foot on it for 10 minutes 3 times a day. This will help massage and cool down the area.

Good luck

Lined with soft fabric on both sides, this ~2mm thick SiliposŪ proprietary gel pad is an excellent cushion to help relieve the burning sensation and discomfort of the five metatarsal heads of the foot (the ball-of-foot) by protecting the ball of foot from repeated friction and abrasion with the shoes.
