PODIATRIST, DR. ROCK POSITANO STATES, "THE MOST COMMON CAUSE OF HEEL PAIN IS PLANTAR FASCIITIS, IN WHICH THE LIGAMENT THAT CONNECTS THE HEEL BONE TO THE TOES BECOMES INFLAMED.  BUT OTHER THINGS -- LIKE A TEAR IN THE LIGAMENT OR A FATTY CYST -- COULD BE TO BLAME.  SO MANY PEOPLE ARE TOLD THAT THEY HAVE PLANTAR FASCIITIS WHEN THEY DON'T.  HEEL PAIN IS A GREAT IMITATOR, BECAUSE SO MANY THINGS CAN CAUSE IT. I LOOKED BACK AT THE PATIENT FILES WHO CAME TO THE HOSPITAL'S JOE DIMAGGIO SPORTS FOOT AND ANKLE CENTER FROM 2006 TO 2007, COMPLAINING OF FOOT AND HEEL PAIN IN A TOTAL OF 175 FEET.  THE PATIENTS HAD ALL BEEN PREVIOUSLY DIAGNOSES WITH PLANTAR FASCIITIS, OR WERE CLINICALLY DIAGNOSES WITH IT AFTER AN EXAMINATION AT THE CENTER.  THEN THEIR FEET WERE EXAMINED WITH AN ULTRASOUND MACHINE.  ULTRASOUND CONFIRMED PLANTAR FASCIITIS IN 73% OF THE FEET, IT ALSO REVEALED LIGAMENT TEARS IN 34%.  THE ULTRASOUNDS ALSO FOUND AT LEAST ON PLANTAR FIBROMA, OR BINIGN GROWTH, IN 15% OF THE FEET".

AT MY FOOT CLINIC WE TREAT A LOT OF CASES OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS WITH GREAT SUCCESS.  WE ARE FULLY EQUIPPED WITH THE LATEST ARAY OF PHYSICAL THERAPY EQUIPMENT AS WELL ALL OF CHIROPODISTS ARE SKILLED IN THE TREATMENT OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS.  OF YOU OR A LOVED REQUIRES COMPETENT FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
