Plantar Fasciitis Treatment in Adelaide
Plantar fasciitis is a common and painful condition that affects the heel and bottom of the foot.
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 Associated with Plantar fasciitis:
Symptoms of this 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 be worse 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.
