Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of pain in your heels. It’s also a pain to pronounce — “PLAN-ter fash-ee-EYE-tus” doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. Your plantar fascia is the thick band of fibrous tissue that connects your heel to your toes. Your plantar fascia keeps tension in the arch of your foot. This tissue band can become inflamed and painful and is probably the most common complaint seen in the office of a podiatrist. All symptoms should always be evaluated with a thorough consultation and examination by your podiatrist for an accurate diagnosis and plantar fasciitis NYC treatment plan to exclude any underlying serious condition. Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that’s most common as you enter your middle years but can occur in younger active individuals. Our specialists also see the condition in those who spend a lot of time on their feet for prolonged periods of time, such as waiters, grocery, and healthcare workers.

How Do Plantar Fasciitis Start?

Foot care experts report that the most common plantar fasciitis causes are wear and tear. Aging and repetitive activities increase your chances of developing this condition. Some rare cases are the result of single injuries to your foot. When you walk, the tissue stretches when your foot hits the ground. The fascia can become stressed by the way you walk, becoming weak, swollen, or painful over time.

Weight and pressure of any sort aggravate the condition. The bottom of your foot or heel then hurts whenever you stand or walk. If you feel heel pain and suspect plantar fasciitis, seek a confirming diagnosis and appropriate treatment from the best-rated practitioners.
