  • CHIROPODY FOOT CLINIC SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING WHAT CAN BE DONE TO RELIEVE THE PAIN OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS

 

Some 15 million annual office visits are for complaints of plantar fasciitis, an injury to the tough band of fibrous connective tissues that stretch along the bottom of the foot. The tissue, which helps maintain the arch of the foot, constantly absorbs stresses, especially when you run. Symptoms include a sharp or burning pain felt directly under or to the side of the heel. The problem typically develops after excessive heel impact, which can lead to irritation, inflammation or even partial tearing of the tissue. It is more likely to afflict the older exerciser than the younger person because the shock-absorbing pads in the heels start to thin out. This tissue also tends to become stiffer with age. 

This nagging ailment is a tough one to cure because of the inherent difficulty in resting the foot. Unless the pain is severe and you have difficulty walking, it is appropriate to self-treat by icing the heel 10 minutes several times a day. One of the most simple and helpful things you can do for yourself is a wall push-up stretch, which will stretch the Achilles tendon and eliminate pain in the plantar fascia. Stand facing a wall at arm’s distance and place both palms on the wall. Keeping your heels flat on the floor and your knees locked, lean forward by bending at the elbows until you feel your Achilles tendon stretch. Hold the stretch for 15 seconds. Return to the staring position and repeat 10 times.
