About plantar fasciitis
Plantar Fasciitis is a condition that is characterized by pain in the heel of the foot. Plantar Fasciitis is commonly caused by overuse and is very common in women, individuals who walk or run often, individuals who are overweight, or someone who spends long periods of time standing throughout the day. Plantar Fasciitis typically affects people between the ages of 40 and 70.
Recovering From plantar fasciitis
To diagnose plantar fasciitis, your doctor will physically examine your foot by testing your reflexes, balance, coordination, muscle strength, and muscle tone. Your doctor may also advise a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or X-ray to rule out other sources of your pain, such as a pinched nerve, stress fracture, or bone spur. Treatment for plantar fasciitis includes chiropractic care, medication, physical therapy, or shock wave therapy, and sometimes even surgery.
