    What We Help

    Heel Pain & Plantar Fascitis

    Plantar Fasciitis pain and chronic inflammation of the plantar fascia (heel pain) is generally located on the bottom of the heel.

    Pain from this condition can best be described as a stabbing or burning pain on the inside area of the heel.  It is often most noticeable in the morning when you get out of bed, especially as you  take your first few steps or after rest.


    Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, a dense band of fibrous tissue that extends from the bottom of the heel bone (calcaneus) to the base of the toes (ball of the foot). The plantar fascia is the main support mechanism for the arch of the foot.


    There are other conditions that cause plantar heel pain such as Baxters nerve entrapment, trigger points in the abductor hallucis, Quadratus plantae, soleus and gastrocnemis muscles that refer pain to this area and fat pad syndrome.


    It is important to get an accurate diagnosis for this condition. Treatment in the early stages is important to prevent the condition becoming chronic.


    Feet First podiatry has many treatment modalities available to treat plantar fasciitis, including remedial exercises, dry needling, serial taping, laser, shockwave and orthotic therapy.
