IL PODIATRIST STATES THAT UNSUPPORTIVE SHOES CAN CAUSE PLANTAR FASCIITIS

CHICAGO PODIATRIST, DR. ELIZABETH KURTZ, "STATES IF YOUR PLANTAR FASCIA GETS INFLAMED, YOU'LL PROBABLY FEEL KNIFE-LIKE HEEL PAIN AS SOON AS YOUR FEET HIT THE FLOOR IN THE MORNING.  THE PAIN GENERALLY EASES THROUGHOUT THE DAY, BUT AS PEOPLE WINCE WITH PRACTICALLY EVERY STEP.  MANY POEPLE PUNISH THEIR FEET WITH FLAT, FLIMSY SHOES THAT DON'T SUPPORT THE ARCH. FLIP-FLOPS SEEM TO BE A MAJOR SOURCE OF FOOT PAIN. WORN OUT SHOES THAT HAVE LOST THEIR CUSHIONING ARE ANOTHER CULPRIT.  PEOPLE WALK INTO THE OFFICE WEARING SHOES THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN REPLACED MONTHS AGO."

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT WE FIND IN OUR FOOT CLINIC WHICH SEEMS TO BE A MAJOR CONTRIBUTOR TO PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS OVERPRONATION.  THAT IS WHY THE MAJORITY OF OUR PATIENTS WITH THIS CONDITION ARE PRESCRIBED ORTHOTICS WHICH USUALLY SOLVES THE PROBLEM IN MANY CASES.  YOU CAN TREAT THE SYMPTOMS, BUT IF YOU DON'T CORRECT THE UNDERLYING PROBLEM, YOU ARE JUST WASTING YOUR TIME.
