Is It Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain that presents itself to all foot clinics. It is estimated that 1 in 10 people will develop Plantar Fasciitis in their lifetime. Excessive pronation contributes to this in over 81% of the patients.
Most patients with Plantar Fasciitis are forced into sedentary behaviour due to the pain and inability to walk. This can contribute to obesity which then further contributes to Plantar Fasciitis so we get caught up in this pain cycle.
Custom Foot Orthotics control foot mechanics and modalities like Laser and Ultrasound decrease pain and inflammation in the heel.
Together these can break the cycle.
