Plantar Fasciitis

The plantar fascia, or aponeurosis, is a thick connective tissue that begins at the bottom surface of the heel and extends towards the toes. This fascia supports the arch of the foot and can be irritated and very painful with weight bearing.

Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of foot pain in adults. Pain is typically worse in the morning, especially with the first few steps when getting out of bed. Some causes of this pain can be an increase in activity, wearing a new pair of shoes, or weight gain.

Physical therapists can diagnose and treat this condition using a variety of techniques including ultrasound, iontophoresis, kinesiotape, manual therapy, exercise, and stretching.

The team at Premiere would love to help you with your foot pain!
