Plantar Fasciitis is the term commonly used to refer to heel pain and arch pain traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. More specifically, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the connective tissue, called plantar fascia, that stretches from the base of the toes,
across the arch of the foot, to the point at which it inserts into the heel bone. Overpronation is the most common cause of plantar fasciitis. As the foot rolls inward excessively when walking, it flattens the foot, lengthens the arch, and puts added tension on the plantar fascia. Over time, this causes inflammation and heel pain.
Also known as heel spur syndrome, the condition is often successfully treated with conservative measures, such as the use of anti-inflammatory medications, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and physical therapy.
As mentioned above, another effective treatment for these conditions is called Shockwave Therapy. We offer EPAT treatment to patients that have conditions which we think would benefit from it, visit the link at the top of the page or call our office for more information on EPAT!
