There is a little known muscle known as the psoas. You pronounce it “SO-as.” It’s surprising how so few people have ever heard of this muscle due to the fact that it is so vital to all movements. Almost all activities and sports that you participate in require the recruitment of your psoas muscles.

Plantar Fasciitis Relief
Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians can help you find relief from the pain and other symptoms associated with Plantar Fasciitis. Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and is caused by inflammation in the ligament that connects your heel bone to your toes and supports the arch of your foot. Symptoms include heel pain and stiffness that is typically worse when you take your first steps in the morning and then improves, but may worsen as the day goes on. It is a common injury in athletes who play sports that require a lot of running.
After confirming a diagnosis of Plantar Fasciitis, we will recommend a treatment plan that is tailored to your specific goals. Your treatment plan may include any combination of rest, stretching exercises, massage, physical therapy, anti-inflammatory medications, steroid and anesthetic injections and more. Our goal is to effectively manage your symptoms and prevent future symptoms using non-surgical methods. Our physicians will work collaboratively with your referring physician, Chiropractor or any ancillary services, such as physical therapy, to coordinate your treatment plan. This collaboration provides a more coordinated and consistent treatment plan and offers better outcomes for our valued patients.
