Heel Pain (Plantar facilitis)


Plantar fasciitis (or heel pain) is commonly traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Our practice can evaluate arch pain, and may prescribe customized shoe inserts called orthoses to help alleviate the pain.Heel Pain

Plantar fasciitis is caused by inflammation of
the connective tissue 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. Also called "heel spur syndrome," the condition can usually be successfully treated with conservative measures such as use of anti-inflammatory medications and ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices, and physical therapy.
