How Can Physical Therapy Help with Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition that affects the bottom of the heel. Plantar fascia is a thick tissue band that connects the heel to the front of the foot. When this becomes inflamed, it causes pain and stiffness in the heal. 

 

Typically, plantar fasciitis-related pain develops gradually over time. Pain can range from dull to severe. Pain can be worse in the morning or after prolonged activity; activities such as prolonged walking or stair climbing can aggravate it.



Plantar fasciitis frequently affects runners and other individuals who spend a great deal of time on their feet. In the later stages of pregnancy, plantar fasciitis can occur in some women. Carrying extra weight increases the likelihood of developing this condition. Typically, it is caused by tightening of the tissue under the foot and up the leg, which leads to inflammation and microscopic tears in the tissue. 

 

Plantar fasciitis can be prevented by wearing supportive shoes with good arch support and replacing athletic shoes frequently. Keeping fit and incorporating low-impact exercises, such as swimming or cycling, can be beneficial. It is also essential to stretch frequently, especially before exercise.



Physical therapy is one of the most effective treatments for plantar fasciitis discomfort.
