Have You Considered These Treatment Options for Plantar Fasciitis?

Pain due to plantar fasciitis can be a chronic problem, stabbing at you in the morning when you first wake up, or flaring up agonizingly when you’ve been sitting still too long. The pain often gets worse after exercise.

You don’t have to live with the pain of plantar fasciitis. Our team of podiatry experts at Town Center Foot & Ankle, under the leadership of Dr. Stephen Eichelsdorfer, can diagnose and treat your plantar fasciitis. 

Here’s what “Dr. Ike” wants you to know about the treatment options for plantar fasciitis available to you at Town Center Foot & Ankle.

How plantar fasciitis causes foot pain

The strong tissue of your plantar fascia extends in a thick band, connecting your heel bone to your toes and supporting the arches of your feet. The plantar fascia has to stand up to a lot of pressure and wear-and-tear. 

Damage or inflammation in your plantar fascia is called plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of foot and heel pain, especially for middle-aged patients, and can severely limit your foot function and mobility. 

Conditions like being overweight or obese or having high arches or flat feet can worsen the pain and inflammation. Activities like running and jumping increase your risk for developing plantar fasciitis.
