PLANTAR FASCIITIS IS A PAINFUL INFLAMMATORY PROCESS OF THE PLANTAR FASCIA WHICH IS THE CONNECTIVE TISSUE ON THE SOLE OF THE FOOT.  ITS MOST COMMON CAUSE IS OVERUSE AND IS A COMMON PROBLEM, BUT HARD TO TREAT IF NOT PROPERLY MANAGED.  LONGSTANDING PLANTAR FASCIITIS USUALLY DEMONSTRATES MORE DEGENERATIVE CHANGES THAN INFLAMMATORY CHANGES.  OVER A LIFETIME 10% OF THE POPULATION WILL HAVE AQUIRED THIS CONDITION.

DIAGNOSIS IS USUALLY MADE BY EXAMINATION BY A FOOT SPECIALIST ONLY.  LONGSTANDING CASES WILL PRESENT WITH SPURRING ON RADIOLOGICAL EXAMINATION.  YOU HAVE TO BE CAREFULL NOT TO CONFUSE THIS CONDITION WITH METATARSALGIA OR BALL-OF-FOOT PAIN.

TREATMENT IN OUR OFFICE CONSISTS OF REST, ICE, STRETCHING, EXERCISES, A.R.T, MASSAGE, ULTRASOUND, INTERFERENTIAL CURRENT, LASER, SHOCKWAVE THERAPY.  USUALLY CUSTOM ORTHOTICS HAVE TO BE PRESCRIBED TO CORRECT UNDERLYING BIOMECHANICAL FAULTS WHICH ARE USUALLY INVOLVED IN THESE CASES. ONLY AS A LAST RESULT WOULD STEROID INJECTIONS BE CONSIDERED.  IF YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM PLANTAR FASCIITIS, PLEASE CALL OUR OFFICE FOR HONEST, COMPETANT CARE.
