A Guide Plantar Fasciitis

What Is It?

Considered the most common cause of heel pain and foot pain, this condition affects the fascia, muscles and ligaments of the lower leg and between the toe and heel bone. Any strain or injury to the gastrocnemius and soleus muscles and ligaments of the lower leg can cause the formation of trigger points resulting in referral pain to the foot and heel. Walking becomes very painful!

What Are the Contributing Causes?

Plantar FasciitisPlantar fasciitis commonly affects individuals with flat or high-arched feet.  Wearing uncomfortable and ill-fitting footwear can worsen the pain, especially if you spend much of your day walking or standing.

What Are the Symptoms?

Patients suffering from this foot condition experience intense pain in the heel and foot when getting out of bed in the morning. That’s because prolonged periods of immobility, as in sleeping for eight hours, can lead to muscle stiffness caused by trigger points. The pain may lessen in degree once you walk a little and stretch the muscles out. However, additional stress throughout the day can increase the severity of pain.

Are There Treatment Options?

Trigger point release therapy along with foot stretching and pain management are important steps to ensure proper healing from plantar fasciitis.

A certified trigger point therapist will evaluate and locate the trigger points. Release of the trigger points will provide significant comfort from this condition. The skilled techniques improve muscular fluidity and blood flow around the inflamed muscles and ligaments. The treatment is followed by stretching and a home stretch plan to help retrain the muscles and prevent recurrence of the pain
