I was diagnosed with planters fasciitis in my right foot about a month ago. The pain in my foot seemed to be getting worse than better so I decided to start using crutches to stay off of it as much as I could. I’m just wondering how long I’ll have to be on crutches until this unbearable pain finally decides to go. My gp never mentioned to me about using crutches for my affected foot. He only gave me a prescription for an ointment for the pain. Witch by the way hasn’t been affective what so ever. Should I be using something else other than the crutches? So far using my crutches has been the only thing that’s help. But I don’t want to have to be on crutches anymore than I have to be. What else is there to try? Oh and I’ve also use a frozen water bottle on my foot twice already. Does a splint help at all?
