Plantar Fasciitis

What is Plantar Fasciitis

What is 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. Plantar Fasciitis can make it very painful and even difficult to stand or walk and can be very debilitating for many individuals. The Interventional Sport physicians and orthopedic specialists from Ortho Sport & Spine Physicians are experts when it comes to treating this chronic and painful sport condition. Using the most advanced, effective and minimally invasive treatments, we are able to help patients who suffer from Plantar Fasciitis find long-term relief from their pain and other symptoms and return to an active and healthy lifestyle.

Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

The most common symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis are heel pain when standing or walking. Most individuals with this condition experience pain when they take their first steps in the morning or after sitting for a long period of time. Often times, the pain and stiffness will get better after you take a few steps but may hurt more as the day goes on. The symptoms will vary in frequency and severity for each individual. Our treatment plans are focused on treating the inflammation in the Plantar Fascia that is causing the pain and stiffness.

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.

What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?

What causes Plantar Fasciitis? Plantar Fasciitis is caused by straining the ligament that supports your arch. The strain causes tiny tears in the ligament and this can lead to pain and swelling. Running, walking or standing for long periods of time, tight Achilles tendons and/or calf muscles and excessive pronation can all cause strain on the your Plantar Fascia. If you have high arches, flat feet or wear shoes that do not fit or are worn out, you are at more at risk for developing Plantar Fasciitis.
