Plantar Fasciitis Symptoms

Plantar fasciitis is a condition where the fascia, or tissue stretched from the toes to the heel of the foot, becomes inflamed by becoming overstretched. Pain may result in the bottom of the foot or at the heel bone. Pain tends to worsen over time, especially in the morning. The result of the inflammation is small tears that occur on the heel membrane, causing bone growths (heel spurs), causing pain and inflammation of the affected area. Both men and women suffer from plantar fasciitis.

Contributing factors that may result in plantar fasciitis are:

  • Obesity or Overweight
  • Standing for long periods of time daily
  • High arch or flat feet
  • Condition of Achilles tendon
  • Intense exercises
  • Certain types of shoes (high heel)
  • Other possible contributing conditions of legs

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

Plantar fasciitis treatment will involve an examination by Dr. Casteel, DPM, to determine the cause of the pain and recommend the proper treatment. Our foot and ankle surgeon will prescribe the proper treatments to:

  • Reduce the stress on the plantar fascia, improving flexibility and strength.
  • Ensure proper healing of the tears involved in the plantar fascia.
  • Reduce and eliminate the heel pain and inflammation.
  • Return to normal activities.

Non-surgical options may be recommended by the podiatrist to correct the plantar fasciitis. These options may include:

  • EPAT Technology
  • Exercises and stretching
  • OTC medications for pain and inflammation
  • Resting or limiting from daily activities for foot rest
  • Proper shoes
  • Inserts or orthotics
  • Splints
  • Casting

Surgical options may include repairing the plantar fascia ligament and removing any heel spurs.
