plantar faciitis

Plantar fasciitis affects the sole of your foot-namely the heel, arch, and midfoot. When your plantar fascia (the connective tissue between your heel and the ball of your foot) are overly stressed, inflammation, over-tightening, and tearing can arise and cause pain. One of plantar fasciitis’s telltale signs is pain when you take your first steps of the day when you first get out of bed.

One certain trigger that stresses the plantar fascia is poor arch support brought on by frequently walking barefoot or wearing shoes with insufficient arch support. Other causes include obesity or a sudden increase in weight, increased physical activity, weak foot and ankle muscles, tight calf muscles, and arthritis.

If you feel pain after sitting, walking, standing for long periods, or climbing stairs, you may be experiencing symptoms of plantar fasciitis. To find out for sure what’s causing your pain, it’s always best to seek professional care.

If you or someone you know has plantar fasciitis, we can help. Plantar fasciitis is known to worsen over time, so we recommend you meet with a Physicians Footcare podiatrist as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and thoughtfully devised treatment plan. Request your appointment now.
