Plantar Fasciitis Treatment: Are you getting the right care?

Are you experiencing heel pain  or stabbing pain in the bottom of your foot near your heel? If the pain happens first thing in the morning, after extended periods of sitting, or gets worse as the day goes on – then you may have plantar fasciitis.

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common problems of heel pain, particularly for people who are involved in long-distance running, triathlons and ballet dancing.

It involves inflammation and pain of a thick band of tissues called the plantar fascia that runs along the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.

Most treatment for plantar fasciitis includes stretching or involves staying off your feet. Although that helps fix the problem, at Body Gears, we take it a step further. Even though plantar fasciitis deals with the ankle, we also explore what is going on with your hip, pelvis and back—each having an influence on your ankle.

Watch our video on the treatment of plantar fasciitis to see how our treatment is different.

If you have had plantar fasciitis in the past but have only completed treatment from the ankle down, call us at 877-709-1090 to schedule an appointment with one of our Physical Therapists. Our team looks forward to helping you reach and maintain your functional potential.
