MALTA PODIATRIST DISCUSSES PLANTAR FASCIITIS

 

PODIATRIST, CHRISTIAN ELLUL STATES, "HEEL PAIN IS BY FAR THE MOST COMMON FOOT PROBLEM IN ADULTS, ESPECIALLY FEMALES.  THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF HEEL PAIN IN ADULTS IS PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  UNFORTUNATELY, IT IS OFTEN THE CASE THAT PATIENTS ARE GIVEN REPETITIVE ANTI-INFLAMMATORY MEDICATIONS AND CORTICOSTEROID INJECTIONS WHEN THE FOOT STRUCTURE ITSELF, THE PRINCIPLE CAUSE OF THIS CONDITION, HAS NOT BEEN EVALUATED. IN FACT, IT IS PEOPLE WHO EXCESSIVELY PRONATE AND THOSE WITH EITHER A LOW ARCH OR HIGH ARCH, WHO ARE PRONE TO DEVELOPING THIS CONDITION,  THE REASON WHY THIS CONDITION IS MORE PREVALENT IN FEMALES IS DUE TO FOOT WEAR.  EXCESSIVE HIGH HEELS, FLIP-FLOPS, AND NON-SUPPORTIVE FOOTWEAR EXACERBATES THIS CONDITION."
