After battling severe plantars fasciitis for close to two years and exercising all remedies, I finally decided to go ahead with the Tenex procedure as recommended by Dr. Langer. Although the first 7 weeks after the surgery I wasn’t allowed to run, after that I slowly began to ramp up my mileage again. Within 3 months of the surgery I was running 60-70 miles a week and 4 months after I was back to 80-100 miles a week. Now, 9 months after, I am able to do all daily life activities plus maintain a high level of mileage. I highly recommend this surgery to anyone battling severe plantars, regardless if you are an athlete or not.
