Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Klemzig
Is heel pain impacting your ability to work, exercise, and go about your daily routine? Plantar fasciitis could be to blame.
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
At the bottom of the foot lies the plantar fascia, a substantial band of tissue extending from the heel to the toes, pivotal in shaping the foot’s arch and vital for foot functionality and comfort. Inflammation of this tissue, known as plantar fasciitis, often leads to heel discomfort, which can be quite severe.
The most frequently encountered issue at the Adelaide Heel Pain Clinics is this type of heel discomfort. Our clinic sees a daily average of 50 instances of heel discomfort, typically associated with plantar fasciitis. The prevalence of this condition doesn’t lessen its severity. Early management is crucial, especially considering research findings that many individuals with plantar fasciitis experience prolonged discomfort. Early consultation with a podiatrist is highly recommended for effective management.
Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
The primary symptom to indicate plantar fasciitis is, of course, heel pain. The pain commonly associated with this particular condition is typically described as sharp, taking place in the bottom of the foot right near the heel. It is common for patients to describe their pain as worst in the morning, as they take their first few steps after laying down the entire night. Similarly, pain from plantar fasciitis can be worse after sitting or standing for long periods at once. Other common symptoms could include pain in the sole of the foot, limping, swelling, and tenderness.
What Causes Plantar Fasciitis
Excessive strain and pressure on the plantar fascia is a common cause of plantar fasciitis, which leads to inflammation and heel discomfort. This condition can often be triggered by physically demanding activities that stress the heel, including sports like running, dancing, or gymnastics. Other contributing factors to plantar fasciitis might be weight fluctuations, aging, being pregnant, spending extended durations on one’s feet, and possessing foot characteristics such as flat feet or high arches.
