Ankle and Feet Arthritis Treatment in Adelaide

Plantar fasciitis is a common and painful condition that affects the heel and bottom of the foot.

Symptoms Associated with Plantar fasciitis

It is often seen in athletes, particularly runners, but can also affect anyone who spends a lot of time on their feet. The condition is caused by inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes.

Symptoms include heel pain, especially when first stepping out of bed in the morning or after periods of rest, as well as pain and stiffness in the heel and bottom of the foot. The pain may also worsen after long periods of standing or walking.

If left untreated, plantar fasciitis can become a chronic condition and may lead to other foot and ankle problems. That’s where Keep Me Walking Podiatry comes in. Our team of sports podiatrists are experts in treating plantar fasciitis and other foot and ankle conditions.

FAQ's For Plantar fasciitis Treatment

If you are experiencing heel pain, especially when first stepping out of bed in the morning or after periods of rest, and pain and stiffness in the heel and bottom of the foot, you may have plantar fasciitis. It is important to have the condition diagnosed by a medical professional to ensure proper treatment.

There are steps you can take to reduce your risk of developing plantar fasciitis, such as wearing proper footwear, stretching regularly, and taking breaks from prolonged standing or walking. However, sometimes the condition can still occur even with these preventive measures.

The length of time it takes to recover from plantar fasciitis can vary based on the severity of the condition and the effectiveness of the treatment.
