PODIATRIST, DR. JEFFREY GREGORI STATES, "USUALLY OVERUSE CAUSES PLANTAR FASCIITIS - TOO MUCH EXERCISE OVER TOO SHORT A TIME FRAME - AS WELL AS POOR SHOE FIT OR POOR INSOLES.  FOR EXAMPLE, YOU MIGHT RUN 5 MILES WHEN YOU HAVEN'T DONE SO IN 10 YEARS, OR WALK AROUND FOR HOURS IN FLIP-FLOPS AT AN AMUSEMENT PARK.  IT'S IMPORTANT TO TREAT PLANTAR FASCIITIS AS SOON AS YOU FEEL THE HEEL OR ARCH PAIN.  WHEN TREATED EARLY, IT USUALLY GOES AWAY IN 4 TO 6 WEEKS WITH CONSERVATIVE TREATMENT, INCLUDING REST, MASSAGE, STRETCHING, ICING AND WEARING SUPPORTIVE SHOES.  IF THESE MEASURES DON'T HELP, A PODIATRIST WILL CONSIDER CORTISONE INJECTIONS AND CUSTOM ORTHOTICS."

I AGREE WITH THIS SHORT ARTICLE, ALTHOUGH WE WOULD CONSIDER CUSTOM ORTHOTICS FROM THE GET-GO IF THE PATIENT HAD PES PLANUS OR SOME OTHER POSTURAL DEFECT WHICH COULD BE HELPED WITH ORTHOTICS.  ALSO WE NEVER EVER CONSIDER CORTISONE INJECTIONS AS WE PRACTICE CONSERVATIVE HEALTH CARE WHERE WE AVOID SURJERY ND MEDICATIONS AT ALL COST.

BROUGHT TO YOU BY DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WHO IS CONSTANTLY STRIVING TO PROVIDE EACH AND EVERY PATIENT THE HIGHEST QUALITY LEVEL OF HEALTH CARE AT ALL TIMES.
