How We Treat Plantar Fasciitis

Comprehensive Consultation and Exam
At our clinic, all patients receive a comprehensive consultation and exam for plantar fasciitis. During this initial appointment, our staff will take a detailed medical history and physical assessment to understand the patient’s condition better. We will then discuss the different treatment options to help reduce the symptoms and aid recovery.

We understand that no two cases are alike and will tailor a treatment plan specific to the patient’s needs. This treatment plan may include stretching, orthotics, or other therapies such as shockwave therapy or laser therapy. We are committed to providing the best care and treatment to help our patients recover.

Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis

Treatments for Plantar Fasciitis include rest, icing, and stretching. Rest is important to allow the inflammation of the plantar fascia to decrease. Icing the area for 15-20 minutes several times a day can help reduce pain and swelling. Stretching the calf muscles and Achilles tendon can help improve flexibility and reduce strain on the plantar fascia. In addition to these conservative treatments, shockwave therapy and custom orthotics can be beneficial.

Shockwave Therapy

Shockwave therapy is a relatively new treatment approach that has been proven to help with the pain associated with plantar fasciitis. Shockwave therapy works by delivering a series of mechanical shockwaves to the affected area. This causes a response in the tissue that reduces inflammation and stimulates healing.

Shockwave therapy is non-invasive and doesn’t require any downtime, so it is a great option for those who are looking for an alternative to more traditional treatments. It is also relatively quick, with most sessions lasting between 15-30 minutes. In addition, it is relatively safe and has few (if any) side effects.

Class IV Laser 

Class IV Laser is an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis, a common foot condition that causes pain and inflammation in the heel and arch of the foot. Class IV Laser therapy has been shown to reduce pain and inflammation in the plantar fascia, reduce scar tissue and help heal the damaged tissue. The laser energy penetrates deep into the tissue, increasing circulation and reducing inflammation. 

It also helps to break up adhesions that have formed in the tissue, allowing for better foot mobility. Laser therapy can also help reduce stiffness and improve the range of motion in the foot, allowing for a quicker return to normal activities.

Digital Stimulus Electrotherapy

Digital Stimulus Electrotherapy can be an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis. It works by delivering electrical impulses to the affected area, which can help increase blood flow, reduce swelling and inflammation, and reduce pain. 

This treatment can also help to strengthen and stretch the plantar fascia, which can help to reduce the recurrence of plantar fasciitis symptoms. Digital Stimulus Electrotherapy is a non-invasive, drug-free treatment, which makes it an appealing option for those looking for relief from the symptoms of plantar fasciitis.

Common Causes for Plantar Fasciitis 

Common causes for this condition include overuse, improper footwear, and obesity. Overuse of the foot can cause the plantar fascia to become strained and inflamed due to the increased pressure on the tissue. Similarly, wearing improper footwear, such as too-narrow or too-high of a heel, can put unnecessary strain on the plantar fascia. Lastly, carrying extra weight can strain the feet and the plantar fascia, increasing the risk of developing plantar fasciitis.
