More on foot pain...
Heel pain is an extremely common and potentially disruptive affliction that has many possible causes. These include stress fractures, arthritis, nerve irritation, cysts, and tendinitis.
The most common cause for heel pain is plantar fasciitis. Plantar means bottom of the foot and fascia is a type of strong, fibrous tissue. Plantar fasciitis means inflammation of the ligament/facial tissue that runs along the bottom surface of the foot, helping to hold up the arch, which originates from the heel bone, where it is often most painful. Treating plantar fasciitis may involve a combination of cortisone injections, taping up the arch for support, anti-inflammatory drugs, arch supports or orthotics, stretching, and physical therapy.
Plantar fasciitis occurs when the tissue that connects the heel to the toes becomes inflamed. This inflammation causes pain on the bottom of the heel that can continue to grow in intensity over time.
Risk factors include:
- Flat feet
- High arches
- Nonsupportive shoes
Treating Plantar Fasciitis
There are many conservative treatment options for plantar fasciitis, including a stretching regimen, icing, footwear modifications, anti inflammatory medications and weight reduction to lessen impact on the feet.
More severe cases may be treated with additional padding and orthotic devices, the use of a walking cast, night splints and physical therapy. Surgery to detach the plantar fascia is an option, but only if all other treatments have been ineffective.
If you are experiencing heel pain, schedule an appointment with your trusted podiatrist today. The sooner you get treatment, the sooner you can walk without pain.
