What is plantar fasciitis?
The condition known as plantar fasciitis is cause by inflammation of the ligaments attached to the bottom of the heel. In most cases, these ligaments become inflamed due to a tear. This condition is very common in women who are overweight. It is also very highly associated with certain foot types as well as repetitive and strenuous physical activities that may cause the ligaments to tear.
Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
If you have been diagnosed with plantar fasciitis, you will need to get treatment as soon as possible so that you do not worsen the situation. The diagnosis of plantar fasciitis is normally done by a very specific examination of the back of the heel. Physicians will often look for a nerve which is inflamed or pinched underneath the fascia which will confirm the diagnosis.
So, what are the available treatments?
In order to treat plantar fasciitis, you need to do three things. These are listed in the table below with suggestions on how to accomplish them.
|Cushion the heel||A silicone heel pad can be used for cushioning the heel|
|Make sure the fascia is stretched sufficiently||Stretching exercises using a split on brace|
|Provide support for the arch of the feet||Orthotics provide support for the arch of the feet|
