  • PLANTAR FASCIITIS, HEEL PAIN AND ORTHOTICS ARE ALL INTERRELATED CONDITIONS AND DISCUSSED BY DR. HARDY

HEEL PAIN IN MOST CASES IS A RESULT OF PLANTAR FASCIITIS WHICH IS INFLAMATION OF A BROAD FASCIA BAND THAT EXTENDS FROM THE CALCANEOUS (HEEL BONE) TO THE FOREFOOT. THIS IS USUALLY A RESULT OF OVERUSE OR MICROTEARS WITHIN THE LIGAMENT SECONDARY TO IMPROPER MECHANICS OF THE FOOT.  MOST PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC DEFICIENCY KNOWN AS OVER PRONATION WHERE THE LONGTITUDINAL ARCH HAS BEEN COMPRIMISED.  THIS CAN ALSO LEAD TO ANOTHER CONDITION KNOWN AS HEEL SPUR WHERE CALCIUM HAS BEEN LAID DOWN AT THE INSERTION OF THE PLANTAR FASCIA AT THE CALCANEOUS DUE TO REPEATED STRESS.  THIS CAN FURTHER EXACERBATE THE CONDITION.

WHEN A PERSON HAS PES PLANUS (FLAT FOOT) IT CAUSES MEDIAL ROTATION OF THE FOOT AND ANKLE AS WELL AS THE LOWER LIMB LEADING TO A MYRIAD OF ORTHOPEDIC CONDITIONS.  THE ONLY SUCCESSFUL TREATMENT OF THESE CONDITIONS IS A CUSTOM-MADE ORTHOTIC MADE FROM A CASTING OF THE FOOT IN THE NON-WEIGHTBEARING POSITION IN ORDER TO STABILIZE THE FOOT AND LOWER LIMB TO IMPROVE MECHANICS AND REDUCE STRESS AND INFLAMATION.
