What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a relatively common condition that can lead to disruptive heel pain. It is characterized by the inflammation of the foot’s thick band of tissue (the plantar fascia) that runs from the bottom of the heel to the toes. Plantar fasciitis may develop from strain associated with certain types of foot mechanics, exercise, or simply the body’s natural aging process. Symptoms of this condition include stabbing pain near the heel that may worsen after you wake up or following periods of activity.
How is Plantar Fasciitis Treated?
Plantar fasciitis treatment at Physicians Rehabilitation is tailored to the specific needs of our patients. Our specialists often recommend a unique combination of physical therapy and other conservative treatments, such as splinting and orthotics, to reduce painful inflammation and help patients overcome their symptoms without the need for surgery or potentially addictive medications.
Contact Physicians Rehabilitation today to schedule an appointment with a specialist on our team – even if other doctors have suggested that surgery is your only viable plantar fasciitis treatment option. We look forward to working with you and helping you get back to the activities you enjoy.
