Plantar Fasciitis

Over time, due to overuse or poor footwear, the plantar fascia may become irritated.  Small tears occur in the fascia ligament where it inserts into the heel. This results in the pain and inflammation of plantar fasciitis. The condition is common among runners, dancers, and people who are overweight. While plantar fasciitis can affect anyone at any time, it occurs most frequently between the ages of 40 and 60. 

Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms

Pain associated with plantar fasciitis may feel stabbing or like a dull ache, especially near your heel. It usually goes away while sitting or lying down. 

For most people, pain increases:

  • First thing in the morning

  • Throughout the day

  • When climbing stairs or standing on toes

  • After standing for a long period

  • Following exercising, not during

Plantar fasciitis is usually treated conservatively and improves in several weeks to months. 

  • Wearing supportive shoes 

  • Custom fitted orthotic shoe inserts support the arch, evenly distributing pressure 

  • Application of ultrasound therapy and myofascial release speed recovery

  • Applying an ice pack for 15 minutes a day keeps inflammation at bay

  • Staying a healthy weight keeps excess pressure off the fascia
