Pujols update

Postby Pogotheostrich » Fri Feb 11, 2005 3:25 pm

Cardinals first baseman Albert Pujols will open spring training on time and without limitations after undergoing a second non-invasive procedure to relieve plantar fasciitis in his left foot.
-- St. Louis Post-Dispatch

He played through the pain last year and was actually better in the 2nd half. I wouldn't worry about it.

I never was worried really. Like everyone knows, he played with it year and if it's a problem -- as long as there are no long term risks of course -- why couldn't he just take a few days off and have the non-invasive treatment during the year?

True, but hopefully -- if necessary -- it can get him through this season with follow up treatments every few weeks/months as needed, then next off season they will elect to have surgery to fix the problem permanently. Something I've wondered though is would surgery even fix the problem completely without any sort of follow-ups? I don't know much about the conidition, so that may be a stupid question. :-? But if there are no adverse long-term effects from the current treatment is it just as effective in terms of recurrances as surgery?

not really sure what you are getting at? he was originally scheduled to have two treatments but felt so good after the first that he and the doc thought the second one wasnt necessary. after a couple weeks they decided the 2nd one was necessary. after getting the 2nd one they say he has no restrictions.
