The plantar fascia is a band of tissue connecting the heel to the base of the toes. In Plantar fasciitis there is inflammation and micro tears of this fascia that creates heel pain.
It is common to have heel pain in the morning and walking for 5-10 mins will alleviate the pain.

Causes of plantar fasciitis:

Treatment:

The use of natural anti inflammatories such as turmeric and Omega 3 fish oils can help reduce pain.
Icing is a great way to decrease inflammation at home. In office, we can use the graston tool or shockwave therapy to help break up adhesions in the plantar fascia. Our office can also scan your feet for orthotics that can help with plantar fasciitis pain. We will also adjust the feet/ankle and make sure you have the appropriate stretches/strengthening exercises for home.
