One of the most common forms of heel pain, plantar fasciitis impacts millions of Americans each year. Caused by inflammation affecting a crucial part of the foot, plantar fasciitis can seriously interrupt your day-to-day life, which is why we’re here to help you find the relief you’re looking for.
How to Treat Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is similar to a lot of the issues that we address here at Synergy Foot and Ankle, in that it gets worse and worse if it is left unaddressed. For this reason, it is especially important to seek treatment as early as possible, and we recommend coming in for an exam as soon as you think you might be dealing with an issue like plantar fasciitis. Continuing to walk while suffering from plantar fasciitis may result in a plantar fascial tear, chronic pain, and extended rehabilitation.
Treatment of plantar fasciitis may include:
- Stretching exercises
- Non-steroidal anti-inflammatories (NSAIDs)
- Steroid injections
- Custom orthotics
- Shockwave therapy
- PRP injections
- Surgical intervention
