What Is Plantar Fasciitis?

The plantar fascia is the ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot.  When this ligament becomes strained or partially torn, it causes stabbing pain in the bottom of the heel. This pain is often noticed first steps out of bed in the morning and after walking after sitting for extended periods.

What Are The Main Causes Of Plantar Fasciitis?

There are multiple causes of plantar fasciitis but they all lead to a strain on the ligament.  This may be accompanied by small tears within the ligament that causes pain and inflammation. There are a number of factors that may increase a person’s risk for developing plantar fasciitis. Some of these factors that put excessive pressure on the plantar fascia include:

  • Flat feet
  • Being overweight
  • Excessive standing, walking, or exercising. Especially on harder surfaces.
  • Unsupportive shoes that lack cushioning
  • Tight Achilles tendon

What Are The Best Plantar Fasciitis Treatments?

  • Rest and Ice– Avoid activities that put excessive strain on the foot. When resting, apply an ice pack was to the bottom of your foot as often as possible.
  • Prescription medicine–Prescription anti-inflammatories can reduce inflammation in the ligament. Cortisone injections are also effective at reducing pain, swelling and inflammation.
  • Supportive shoes and orthotics–A leather, lace up shoe with a cushioning orthotic insole reduces pressure on the feet.
  • Plantar fasciitis night splint– This helps stretch the plantar fascia ligament and allow us for any quicker recovery.
  • Physical therapy– Exercises to stretch the plantar fascia and improving flexibility and strength of the feet.
  • Extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT)- This breakthrough therapy decreases pain and promotes healing. Some

If you are looking for a Podiatrist look no further. This clinic has taken care of my son. It was so nice to go in and have the entire staff make us feel welcomed and answer all of our questions. We got in quickly and the x-rays are done in the clinic.
