Help For Hobbling Heel Pain
Help for Hobbling Heel Pain
Plantar Fasciitis is a common foot condition characterized heel and arch pain. The pain is usually worse in the morning and may improve throughout the day to a dull ache. The Plantar Fascia is a plastic-like tissue that holds ones feet in their arch formation. The fascia can become inflamed, making sports, walking, even standing painful.
This condition is one of the most common orthopedic foot complaints. Plantar Fasciitis is often thought of as being caused by a heel spur but research has found that this is not the case. Plantar Fasciitis is seen in people with and without heel spurs.
Risk factors include:
- Foot abnormalities (both flat feet and high arches)
- High Impact Sports
- Standing/walking on hard surfaces (such as at work)
- Sudden weight gain
- Tight Achilles tendon
- Tight calf muscles
Conservative treatment is almost always successful.
