Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

  • Find out why your feet are always hurting

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia which is a fibrous tissue in the foot that joins the toes to the calcaneus (heel bone). This inflammation can often limit your activity.

Your pain is usually intense at the front of the heel or through the arches of the feet, particularly on renewing activity, after rest, in the morning and/or during the day.

The pain generally begins in the heel but then spread throughout the whole foot. Chronic plantar fasciitis may involve shooting pains around the foot and ankle, further limiting mobility

Causes of Plantar Fasciitis

Over-pronation, abnormally high arches, flat feet or footwear can increase the strain on your feet and contribute to the inflammation of the plantar fascia.

Treating Plantar Fasciitis

Erica Dash Podiatry will use a Biomechanical Assessment to identify any contributing factors before they cause chronic issues. Effective treatment may include:

  • Same day customised orthotics.
  • supportive cushioning in your shoes.
  • Exercises to stretch and strengthen the muscles and tendons in the feet and legs.
  • A course of Foot Manipulation Technique.

It is important to treat a soft tissue injury promptly, otherwise the inflammation and irritation may develop into a chronic condition.

Erica Dash Podiatry has the same day solution for your heel pain.
