Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis and Your Feet

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation in the bottom of the heel characterized by sharp, burning pain in the heel, the arch and the ankle.

Especially first thing in the morning or after extended periods of inactivity.

It’s caused by excessive stretching of the plantar fascia, a band of tissue that runs along the bottom surface of your foot.

The plantar fascia can stretch for a number of reasons:
• Flat feet or fallen arches
• An unusually high arch
• Increases in activity levels
• Poorly fitting footwear
• Excessive weight on your feet


Why Footwear Matters

Supportive shoes that address arch issues and lifestyle activities are often the first step toward alleviating plantar fasciitis.

Your podiatrist might also recommend inserts, as well as stretching exercises. The key to successful treatment is addressing the symptoms early.

Dr. Comfort shoes and inserts can be professionally modified for a personalized fit that will ease the discomfort associated with plantar fasciitis.
