Plantar Fasciitis Surgery has made my arch drop and created more pain

by Paul

I had Planter surgery done about 8 years ago. Since then my arch has fallen. I can not walk without arch support at all, my whole leg starts to hurt and my knee too without a arch support. I can not go bare feet for 5 min or I will have severe knee and leg hip pain.

The foot surgery was the worst mistake I made in my life, if I could go back I would never do it.

What can I do, Please help!

Hi Paul.

When a surgeon cuts the Plantar Fascia (the connective tissue structure that holds the bottom of your foot together), your foot suddenly becomes less structurally strong.

For some people, it doesn't turn out that bad. For people like you, clearly you NEEDED that structural structure.

And now that your foot is have extra problems, it can't absorb force like it's supposed to, and notice how it's transferring up your leg.

I'm curious what exactly your surgeon did during your Plantar Fasciitis Surgery.


You now have a MAJOR Process of Inflammation in place. You had one before surgery, but it's far worse now. That's A LOT of the pain. If you're lucky, that's the vast majority of it.

If you're not lucky, you also need to deal with the original issue.

Chances are, you didn't need surgery in your feet. But you DID need to open up all the muscle and connective tissue in the back of your lower leg. It gets too tight and since it reaches down into your feet, with every step you take it results in too much tension, pain signal, etc.

people feel that in their feet, they call it Plantar Fasciitis. You can of course have actual Tendonitis in your feet. Maybe you did, I certainly can't tell from here.

What can you do? You need to reduce inflammation, make sure you don't have any nutritional deficiencies, and reverse the Tendonitis dynamic, which includes the Pain Causing Dynamic.

If you want a complete plan, I suggest that you get my 'The Plantar Fasciitis Treatment That Works' DVD and the companion ebook that comes with it.

It's going to take some regular effort with the self care. But it's safe to say it's not going to get better all on it's own. How much improvement can you get? I don't know as I don't know your exact situation, but at this point, any natural decrease in pain levels is worth it.

And once you're on the plan for a couple weeks, we'll have a better idea what's actually going on.
