Heel pain (Plantar fasciitis)

plantar_fasciitisPlantar fasciitis is a painful condition affecting the heel, caused by an overstretching of the plantar fascia that helps support the inner arch of the foot.

Foot pain is usually felt as a sharp intense pain or bruising ache on the underside of the heel and is often most intense as you step out of bed in the morning or after periods of rest.

Commonly associated with jobs that require standing and walking on hard surfaces and such sporting activities as football, golf and running.

Plantar fasciitis is primarily caused by an underlying Biomechanical fault within the foot as a result of your feet continually rolling inwards placing a mechanical strain on the heel insertion of the plantar fascia. TREATMENT may involve foot acupuncture, steroid injection or Orthotic insoles, our professional team of podiatrists would be able to help you decide on the future treatment regime needed.
