  • NEW YORK PODIATRIST STATES THAT PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS BECOMING AN EPIDEMIC

 

 

 
New York Podiatrist, Dr. Michael Weisman states, "plantar fasciitis is becoming an epidemic. It is estimated that 10 percent of the population suffers from the condition. The plantar fascia is a ligament on the sole of the foot that supports the arch and connects the toes to the heel. Inflammation of this ligament can cause moderate to debilitating pain when standing and walking. The pain is most noticeable in the morning or after a period of sitting, when the ligament is short and tight. I attributes the increase in cases of plantar fasciitis to overuse, inappropriate footwear, tight muscles of the lower leg, and excess body weight."
 
At our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinic we treat many cases of plantar fasciitis very successfully using conservative procedures only.  our clinic philosophy is to avoid drugs and surgery whenever possible.  Whenever we can avoid drugs and surgery the patient is always better off.
