Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

plantar fasciitis heel pain treatmentPlantar fasciitis is a disorder that affects the plantar fascia, which is the ligament that stretches across the sole of the foot. This ligament provides support for the arch, and in turn, helps with balance and flexibility in the foot. When the plantar fascia is damaged due to injury, it can lead to limited mobility and heel pain. If you continue to put pressure on injured or irritated plantar fascia, you increase the risk of a rupture. In such cases, your Dallas podiatrist may advise heel surgery or foot surgery at the best option to remedy the damage.

Causes & Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis has a variety of causes, including physical injury and overstretching of the ligament. Athletes and those who work physically demanding jobs are more prone to suffer from plantar fasciitis, but the condition can also be caused by improperly stepping up stairs or due to a slip and fall. Over time, age may also play a part in developing plantar fasciitis, so regular checkups with a podiatrist are recommended to ensure foot and ankle health.
