Eliminate Foot Pain Today
Plantar fasciitis is considered the most common cause of foot pain in the United States. The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) states that there were more than 2-million people seeking treatment for this condition in the last year alone. The plantar fascia is the strong band of tissue that supports the arch of your foot.
Plantar fasciitis occurs when this tissue becomes inflamed and irritated. When this band of tissue becomes irritated or inflamed, your heel may start to pain, become hot, swell, or turn red. Plantar fasciitis can worsen and become a chronic condition when you don’t treat the condition on time. It may affect the way you walk, exercise, and the quality of your life over time.

Plantar Fasciitis – Causes & Risk Factors
In most patients, the exact cause of plantar fasciitis is largely unknown. But the “overuse” of the plantar fascia in people who work out and play sports is considered the most common reason for plantar fasciitis. The plantar fascia is designed to support your foot as it experiences stress and strain regularly. The fascia gets injured when there is too much pressure on the band of tissue. Inflammation is the natural response of the human body to injury. It results in heel pain and stiffness that you experience when you have plantar fasciitis.
. You are more likely to get plantar fasciitis if you are a female
. You are overweight
. You have very high arches or very flat feet
. You participate in high-activity sports or you are a runner
. You walk a lot or stand on hard surfaces as required by your job
. Your calf muscles are tight and it limits how far you can flex your ankles
Plantar Fasciitis – Common Symptoms
The condition may develop gradually with mild pain in the heel and progress to more severe pain over time. The pain may not interrupt your work schedule at first, but you are likely to feel the pain afterward. The most common symptom of plantar fasciitis is severe heel pain that occurs right after you wake up in the morning. Here are some of the other symptoms of plantar fasciitis:
. Pain that intensifies after exercising or participating in any physical activity
. Pain on the bottom of the foot – near the heel
. Pain after long periods of sitting or standing
. Pain that eases after a couple of minutes of walking
. Pain that occurs in one foot – Plantar fasciitis rarely occurs in both feet at the same time
. Pain that feels like you are being stabbed in the heel of the foot

The expert medical team at Westside Wellness Center will review your medical history and physically examine your foot to diagnose the condition. We will also use imaging studies to confirm the diagnosis of plantar fasciitis to determine the most effective treatment for you.
