Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis

Blog by Vancouver Orthotics, Hycroft Medical Building (114-3195 Granville St @ 16th Ave) | July 29th, 2016

You’ve been feeling a chronic pain in your heel, from the moment you wake up until you get into bed, and you think you may have Plantar Fasciitis. Other than wondering how to pronounce it (Plantar Fasci-whaaat?) you’re probably wondering how you can make this pain go away. Plantar Fasciitis is a very painful inflammatory condition caused by the excessive strain on the, you guessed it, plantar fascia (the bottom tissue of your foot). The pain can be felt in the heel or the arch of your foot, and can be caused by trauma or from the repetitive strain caused by a flat and overly pronated foot. The good news is that Plantar Fasciitis can be successfully treated with the use of custom orthotic inserts. If you’ve just about had it with foot pain, and are looking for a treatment free from surgery, give us a call at Vancouver Orthotics to learn how custom orthotic inserts can help!
