plantar faciitis

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain and is seen in patients of all ages and body-type. Classically, the pain is worse after periods of rest or with the first few steps after getting out of bed in the morning. The pain will often improve throughout the day and then again worsen at the end of the day.

The plantar fascia is a band of connective tissue that stretches from the heel to the ball of your foot, providing support to the joints and arch of your foot. Although we can sometimes identify certain triggers, that cause irritation and pain to this structure, the underlying cause of plantar fasciitis is multifactorial as is the treatment.

To know for sure what’s causing you pain, it’s recommended that you meet with one of our podiatrists as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and advised treatment plan.
