Plantar Fasciitis


Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is the band of tissue that runs across the bottom of the foot and supports the natural arch of your bones. This inflammation is the most common cause of heel pain among Americans and frequently occurs when the foot becomes overstressed with repetitive activity.

Risk factors that may contribute to the incidence of plantar fasciitis include obesity, new or increased activity, repetitive strain on your feet, high arches, or lack of flexibility in the foot and leg muscles. If you seem to fit in with some of these risk factors or just have heel pain that won't go away, you may be affected by plantar fasciitis, and your best course of action is to see a professional and begin treatment as soon as possible.

The doctors and orthopaedic professionals at Excelsior Orthopaedics Express can offer advanced knowledge and treatment of plantar fasciitis. Don't live with the pain for one day longer than you have to. Call today, and make an appointment to come see us. 

For more information about plantar fasciitis, this guide from the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons is an excellent resource.
