Plantar Fasciitis

plantar fasciitisAlleviate heel pain and plantar fasciitis

Serious problems with your feet can have a huge effect on your life and make daily activities a challenge. People who work on their feet all day are susceptible to heel pain, arch pain, and plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of your foot, the plantar fascia. It connects the heel bone to your toes and creates the arch of the foot.


Heel pain is an extremely common and potentially disruptive affliction that has many possible causes. These include stress fractures, arthritis, nerve irritation, cysts, tendinitis, and, most often, plantar fasciitis.

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis occurs when the tissue that connects the heel to the toes becomes inflamed. This inflammation causes pain on the bottom of the heel that can continue to grow in intensity over time.

Risk factors include:

  • Flat feet
  • High arches
  • Non¬≠supportive shoes
  • Obesity

Treating Plantar Fasciitis

There are many conservative treatment options for plantar fasciitis, including a stretching regimen, icing, footwear modifications, anti ­inflammatory medications and weight reduction to lessen impact on the feet.

More severe cases may be treated with additional padding and orthotic devices, the use of a walking cast, night splints and physical therapy. Surgery to detach the plantar fascia is an option, but only if all other treatments have been ineffective.

If you are experiencing heel pain, schedule an appointment with your trusted podiatrist today. The sooner you get treatment, the sooner you can walk without pain.
