My daughter is 12 years...
My daughter is 12 years old she is suffering from plantar fascitis. She does ballet and she is very fond of this discipline. After every lesson her foot hurts and now she is preparing for an important show. How can i help her ease the pain? Do you think that she will do more damage if she keeps doing ballet?

she's been like this for sbout a month. the only medicine is the cataflan 25mg we've been to the physioterapist last wednesday
Pediatrician: Dr. Su S., Pediatrician replied 8 years ago
Thank you for the input.

I shall try my best to explain the condition. Mainstay of plantar fascitis is rest to the foot. In addition to cataflam , you can apply ice there too. Physiotherapy often helps to relieve symptoms. But when the symptoms are continuing you can take her to an orthopedic doctor. Sometimes steroid injection is needed to reduce the inflammation. At this stage, I think avoiding further strain on the fascia will be helpful for healing. Night splints, orthotic devices etc can also be used after consulting the orthopedic doctor.



Hope this information will help you.
Wish her healthy life.
Any query, please feel free to ask.
It will be my privilege to assist you.
Regards.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
