Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

How Plantar Fasciitis Occurs?

Plantar fasciitis is usually caused by repetitive strain injury to the ligament of the sole of the foot. This type of injury can be from excessive running or walking, inadequate foot gear. Plantar fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia ligament becomes inflamed.

Plantar fasciitis causes excruciating heel pain which radiates down to the bottom of the foot. It can occur to anybody, at any age, but it is an overuse injury that is especially common in athletes and those who are constantly on their feet.

Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

Plantar fasciitis treatments like stretching, ice packs and exercising are common home remedies which are also effective treatments for plantar fasciitis. But before trying these home treatments, you must seek the advice of a physiotherapist.

The physiotherapist will advise you on the best treatment plan for your specific condition. The plantar fasciitis treatment is targeted to improve the strength of the connective tissues around the heel bone and provide increased protection to prevent further damage.

Orthotics are medical devices which are used to help the body get used to certain movements or positions. Orthotics work on three main issues related to plantar fasciitis; arch support, shock absorption and motion control.

They are very important for people suffering from plantar fasciitis because they take away the abnormal pressure on the arch and thus reduce the pain. There are a number of foot orthotics available in the market and the one you choose should be according to your individual requirements.
