Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. Here at Active Ankle & Foot, we understand that when your feet hurt, your entire routine is disrupted by it. Fortunately, our podiatrist is the specialist you need for treating Arrowind plantar fasciitis.
The flat ligament that connect your heel bone to your toes is known as the plantar fascia. When it becomes strained, you can experience swelling, weakness, and inflammation. And while middle-age is most frequently associated with getting it, you can develop Arrowind plantar fasciitis at any age. Among the risk factors are spending a lot of time on your feet, being overweight, feet that roll inward when you walk, having you feet on hard surfaces for extended periods, either while moving or being stationary. In addition, flat feet, high arches, poorly-fitting shoes, and tight calf muscles or Achilles tendons can all contribute. The simple fact is that the more time you spend walking, standing, or running, the greater the chances of Arrowind plantar fasciitis occurring. Besides pain, especially after having been sitting or laying down, stiffness is another symptom linked to it. The pain may increase later in the day. A physical examination of your foot by our podiatrist will likely be supplemented with x-rays in order to come to a diagnosis. If your case is mild, simple rest, ice packs, and over-the-counter pain relievers may be enough to address it. Toe or calf stretches, and other exercises can also be helpful. Treating Arrowind plantar fasciitis is often done with orthotics in your shoes. For more severe or stubborn cases, you may wear a splint or get steroid injections.
For any type of heel pain, contact us to set up an appointment with our podiatrist. The more quickly you are evaluated and treated, the sooner your discomfort will be a thing of the past.
