What is Plantar Fasciitis?

It is estimated that roughly 10% of the population will have heel pain at some point in their life and Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common conditions we see. The plantar fascia is a thick band of tissue that runs from the heel bone, calcaneous, to the first bone of the toes, the proximal phalanx. The plantar fascia supports the arch of the foot and consists of three bands of tissue: the lateral, medial, and central portion. The central band is what extends from the heel to the toes.

Signs & Symptoms

  • Point tenderness to the medial aspect of the heel
  • Pain along the arch
  • Pain as your take your first few steps after after being stationary for a longer period of time such as waking up or sitting at a desk

Possible Causes

  • Altered foot mechanics secondary to stiffness and/or weakness of the lower extremity and hip
  • Decreased ankle range of motion, particularly into dorsiflexion (flexing the foot upwards)
  • Prolonged standing and weight bearing activities throughout the day

Do I Need Physical Therapy?

If your pain persists or is a result of a reoccurring injury, let’s talk. Since all injuries are unique, our physical therapists will be able to put together a recovery plan specific to you to improve your ability to move, improve strength, speed up recovery and help you find plantar fasciitis relief and prevent it from reoccurring.

The expertise of the therapists and ability to fine tune and tailor exercises and stretches to the particulars of my injury will have a life long impact on my alignment and body awareness. Both Casey and Josh aim not to just heal for the short term specifics of my injury, but help me to incorporate adjustments and add strengthening that will proactively prevent future injuries. I have literally been blown away with their knowledge.
