  8. Swelling - Topic Overview

    A walking cast is a nonsurgical treatment for plantar fasciitis. Simpler treatments—such as rest, ice, heel cups, or cushions—are usually tried before a walking cast.Having your foot in a cast for several weeks causes some weakening of the foot, ankle, and calf muscles and some loss of flexibility. After the cast is removed, you will need some rehabilitation to restore strength and range of motion. But a cast forces you to rest your foot. This rest may be very helpful for relieving plantar fasciitis.Casting is somewhat more expensive and inconvenient than other nonsurgical treatments. But if less expensive treatments are not helpful, you often will have many more doctor visits. These visits add to the overall cost.A removable cast (CAM walker) can also be effective. But you must wear it 22 to 23 hours a day.

  9. Swelling - Topic Overview

    Cervical (neck) collars are sometimes used to support the neck.Hard collars are rigid and are usually made from plastic. They hold the head and neck very still. They are usually only used after major surgery or a serious injury, such as a broken neck.Soft collars may be made from felt, foam, or rubber. They allow some movement of the head and neck. Soft cervical collars are sometimes used after surgery, but they are of limited value in other neck treatment. Sometimes they can be helpful after a moderate neck injury. When they are used for this purpose, they are typically used for only a few hours a day and for less than a week or two. But for long-lasting neck pain, other types of treatment are more helpful.For more information on treating neck pain, see the following topics:Neck PainOffice Ergonomics
