The holidays are over. Did some of your holiday celebrations and festivities find you carrying more weight than usual? As a result of those extra pounds, you may have listed losing weight to the top of your 2019 New Year’s resolutions. If you gained weight and plan to exercise more in 2019, Ortho Sport & Spine would like to remind you of a few important things to remember.
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia runs across the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. When it is inflamed, it causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with the very first steps taken in the morning. The pain can be worked out once the foot limbers up, but it typically returns though out the day. Plantar fasciitis is particularly common in runners and those who are overweight.
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians offers interventional treatment for this chronic and painful condition. We use the most advanced, effective, and minimally invasive treatments to help patients who suffer from plant fasciitis. We do not want to just treat symptoms of the pain, we want our patients to find long term relief so that they are able to resume a healthy and active lifestyle. Because repetitive stretching and tearing can cause the plantar fascia to become irritated or inflamed, the physicians at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians work to use rest along with physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid and anesthetic injections, and massage to help our patients find relief.
You do not have to live with the pain and discomfort caused by plantar fasciitis. The orthopedic specialists at Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are here to help you find relief from your heel pain. Most of us need the use of our feet in almost every activity that we do each day. If heel pain is causing you to forgo activities that you are typically involved in, then your heel pain is interfering with your life. Our office is currently accepting new patients and we are dedicated to serving all of our patients on an individual basis. No two people are alike, and no two pain tolerances are alike. We will work with you to find the relief that you need.
