  • Plantar is the anatomical name for the bottom of the foot - do you mean Plantar Fasciitis or Plantar Warts??
    But, Yes, using a cane is fine... the general rule is if you have a limp you should use a crutch/s or a cane. You can be totally none weight bearing or partially weight bearing. Do what you need to do to be pain free!! Good Luck!!
