Plantar Facitis Treatment in Vancouver
plantar facitis: this is actually a common mis-spelling of the condition - plantar fasciitis. I include it here because it's often used in google searches and no matter how this condition is spelled (plantar facitis, plantar fasciitis), it can be painful! It can also be treated conservatively - Dr. Michael Horowitz has a 5 step plan for treating plantar facitis (you know what I mean!).
Plantar Fasciitis - Plantar fasciitis: formerly known as "policeman's heel", is a painful inflammatory condition caused by excessive wear to the "plantar fascia" (bottom fibrous area) of the foot. The cause can be from a specific trauma to the foot or from chronic repetitive strain often associated with the flat overly pronated foot. Pain is usually felt on the underside of the heel, inside more often than outside of the arch, and is often most intense with the first steps of the day. It is commonly associated with long periods of weight bearing. Excessive weight or weight gain, jobs that require a lot of standing or walking on hard surfaces, shoes with little or no arch support, and inactivity are also associated with the condition. In advanced cases plantar fasciitis can lead to heel spurring on the calcaneus, in which case it is the underlying condition, and not the spur itself, which produces the pain. Achilles tendinitis can sometimes be associated with plantar fasciitis. Treat the source and the symptoms will subside!
