Plantar Fasciitis

Treating Plantar fasciitis in Plano, Frisco, McKinney and AllenWhat is it?

Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of pain on the bottom of the heel and foot. Approximately 2 million patients are treated for this condition every year. It is caused by the inflammation of the thick band of connective tissue that travels across the bottom of the foot between the toes and the heel known as the plantar fascia. This tissue supports the arch and bears the weight of the foot and the repetitive stress or excessive tension on this tissue causes inflammation and sometimes small tears that become irritated and painful.

Symptoms

The most common symptoms of this condition is pain on the bottom of the foot near the heel that is often described as a stabbing sensation and gradually develops over time, and is often worse in the morning during the first steps out of bed. It may affect only one foot or both at the same time.

Treatment

More than 90% of patients will improve within 10 months of starting simple treatment methods that include rest, ice, anti-inflammatory medications, orthotics, splints and physical therapy. A physician may recommend corticosteroid injections and/or surgery to relieve the tension if conservative treatments prove to be ineffective.
