Plantar fasciitis (or heel spurs) is commonly traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.
Plantar fasciitis commonly causes stabbing pain that usually occurs with your very first steps in the morning. Once your foot limbers up, the pain of plantar fasciitis normally decreases, but it may return after long periods of standing or after getting up from a seated position.
Plantar fasciitis is particularly common in runners. In addition, people who are overweight, women who are pregnant, and those who wear shoes with inadequate support are at risk of plantar fasciitis.
Our practice can evaluate arch pain and may prescribe customized shoe inserts called orthoses to help alleviate the pain. Give the Foot and Ankle Specialty Clinic a call today to schedule your appointment.
