Plantar fasciitis is a painful foot condition that affects the plantar fascia, the thick tissue at the bottom of the foot that supports the foot’s arch.
This condition usually occurs in people who spend long hours standing or walking. Runners and athletes are also extremely prone to developing plantar fasciitis. However, plantar fasciitis can also occur as a result of an injury or trauma to the foot.
Chris F., a dear and positive person, suffered a severe work accident two years ago. As a result, his ability to walk has seen a gradual decline.
He could only walk with the help of a cane, but his motions and lifestyle were heavily limited.
Chris had an appointment with Dr. Benjamin Tehrani, one of the top LA podiatrist. After a thorough and careful examination, Dr. Benji recommended proceeding with endoscopic plantar fascia release, a minimally invasive procedure that removes part of all of the plantar fascia.
Chris underwent bilateral heel surgery for the degeneration of his plantar fascia. During the procedure, Dr. Benji released the fascia and injected it with platelet-rich plasma.
Within four days, Chris was able to walk in sneakers without pain, and he didn’t need his cane.
Thrilled that Dr. Benji successfully resolved the foot problem, Chris happily shared his experience with Dr. Benji and the team at Kings Point Foot & Ankle:
“Dr. Tehrani gave me my life back. I thought I’d have to live the rest of my life with this heel pain. He is an incredible surgeon and, more importantly, just a wonderful human being.”
