PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS ONE OF THE MOST COMMON CAUSES OF HEEL PAIN.  IT IS CAUSED BY MICROTEARS IN THE SUPPORTING FASCIA ON THE SOLE OF THE FOOT.  IT IS CHARACTERIZED BY PAIN ON THE FIRST STEP OF THE DAY WHICH CAN FEEL LIKE STEPPING ON A STONE, SHOOTING PAIN OR A DULL ACHE.  IF THE CONDITION IS NOT PROPERLY TREATED OR IS LEFT UNTREATED IT CAN BECOME CHRONIC AND HARD TO MANAGE.

WE TREAT THE SYMPTOMS WITH LASER, INTERFERRENTIAL CURRENT, ULTRASOUND, SHOCKWAVE THERAPY, EXERCISES, ICE AND STRETCHING.  THE PATIENT IS INSTRUCTED IN R.I.C.E. TO DO AT HOME.  REST, ICE, COMPRESSION AND EXERCISES AND STRETCHING.  LASTLY WE CORRECT THE UNDERLYING CAUSE WHICH USUALLY IS OVERPRONATION BY PRESCRIBING CUSTOM MADE ORTHOTICS.  THESE DEVICES PUT THE FOOT IN THE CORRECT POSITION TO TAKE THE STRESS OFF THE PLANTAR FASCIA.  ALSO ALL OF OUR FOOT SPECIALISTS HAVE BEEN TRAINED IN (A.R.T) ACTIVE RELEASE TECHNIQUE WHICH IS A PATENTED MASSAGE TREATMENT OF SOFT TISSUE INJURIES.
