Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of heel pain. The plantar fascia spans the length of the foot, attaching to the heel bone and metatarsals (toes). When the plantar fascia is strained it can cause swelling irritation and varied degrees of pain in the bottom of the foot.
In many cases the cause of plantar fasciitis isn’t clear. Fallen arches, an increase in weight, age, post-pregnancy and childhood developmental abnormalities are all possible causes.
Weight-bearing activities will worsen pain, especially after prolonged rest or inactivity. Individuals with plantar fasciitis usually have pain in the morning following waking up.
Managing plantar fasciitis pain will often involve combination of treatment options. Visit us to find a pain management combination that works for you.

This device also helps to reduce discomfort, swelling, and inflammation. The adjustable splint allows for greater flexibility and comfort throughout the night.

Ligaments are fibrous connective tissues that connect bone to bone. An injury to the ligaments that connect the bones of the leg to bones of the foot is an ankle sprain.
A crack, break or chip in one of three bones in the ankle. If multiple bones are broken, stability will be lost with the inability to walk
The foot consists of five metatarsal bones that span the arch of the foot. A fracture is a crack, break or chip to a metatarsal bone, typically on the 5th metatarsal, located on the outside of the foot that connects to the little toe.
The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in your body and is responsible for connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. A complete or partly torn Achilles tendon can vary from a mild-to-severe burning pain and stiffness.
The Achilles tendon is the largest tendon in your body and is responsible for connecting the calf muscles to the heel bone. Micro-tears in the tendon, called tendonitis, can result in stiffness, tenderness and pain.
Commonly seen as a result of plantar fasciitis, a heel spur is a bony protrusion on the underside of the heel caused by a build up of calcium. Protrusion often causes a dull ache or sharp “pinprick” pain.
The arch of the foot is formed by tarsal and metatarsal bones that allow the foot to support the weight of the body. Fallen arches is a condition in which the arches of the foot collapse, coming into complete or near-complete contact with the ground.
