Plantar fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of pain in heels. The plantar fascia happens to be the flat band of tissue or ligament that connects the heel bone to the toe. It mainly supports the arch of the foot. Straining the plantar fascia makes it swollen, weak, and irritated. This causes the heel of your foot to hurt when you walk or stand.

Plantar fasciitis is very common with middle-aged people. It can also occur in athletes, soldiers and younger people who are on their feet for a lot of time. This can be caused in one foot or both.

Causes of plantar fasciitis

It is caused due to straining the ligament which supports the arch. Repeated straining can be the cause for tiny tears in the ligament. These can cause pain and swelling. Plantar fasciitis is very evident in cases of:

  • Tight Achilles tendon or calf muscles
  • Running for long distances, especially on hard & uneven surfaces
  • Problems of the foot arch
  • Sudden obesity
  • Wearing shoes with soft soles or poor arch support
  • If the feet is rolled inwards while walking

Symptoms

Most people suffering from plantar fasciitis experience pain when they walk after resting their feet for long durations. You experience less pain and stiffness after a few steps. But your foot may hurt more as the day goes on. It may hurt the most when you climb stairs or after you stand for a long time. Continuous foot pain at night may suggest a different problem like arthritis or nerve problems.

Diagnosis

Physicians will ask you to stand, walk, or run to observe the movement of the bones in the leg. You will also be asked about your symptoms, level of physical activity, health issues, injuries of past, etc.

Treatment

Single one step treatment plans are not usually available with such diseases like plantar fasciitis. Several combinational treatment plans that involve surgery, medication, physical therapy and orthopedic rehabilitation are required. Also care should be taken so as to minimize the activities that lead to further aggravation of symptoms. At optimum rehab we create customized plans as to suit your physician’s treatment plans. We do this taking into consideration the lifestyle and physical condition of the person seeking treatment.

Prevention

Ensuring flexibility of your ankle, Achilles tendon, and calf muscles can help prevent plantar fasciitis.
