Plantar Fasciitis is caused by inflammation of the tissues connected to the heel bone, due to excessive pulling and stretching of the fibrous bands that support the arch of the foot. Continuation of this irritation can lead to heel pain, arch pain or a bony growth on the bottom of the heel bone called a “heel spur”. Another condition related to Plantar Fasciitis is swelling on both sides of the Achilles Tendon (see Achilles tendonitis).
Bursitis and Plantar Fasciitis can occur when a person increases their levels of physical activity or when the heel’s fat pad becomes thinner, providing less protection to the foot.
We have found “Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Spur ” to be extremely common. Plantar Fasciitis/Heel Spur affects many in mild to more debilitating ways. Our staff has had very good success in treating this condition. Patients are encouraged and seem to do well on follow-through with home management of their condition after discharge from foot pain management.Plantar Fasciitis /Heel Rehabilitation Program
