Causes, Treatments, and Prevention of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. The plantar fascia is the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, connecting the heel to the arch of the foot and the toes. When this tissue becomes inflamed, it becomes a painful condition that causes an aching stabbing pain in the foot.

The Do’s and Don’ts of Plantar Fasciitis

It is important to see your podiatrist to diagnose and treat plantar fasciitis, as putting off care can cause scar-like
tissue to develop that can lead to additional foot problems and prolonged recovery.


Do Get A Proper Diagnosis

Do see your podiatrist for a proper diagnosis. Many conditions can cause pain in the heel, so being properly diagnosed by a medical professional is a must.


Don't Go Barefoot

Don’t spend your days barefoot. With the spread of COVID-19, many of us are spending more time at home and may be tempted to go barefoot. Doing so, however, increases the strain on the plantar fascia.


Do Ice and Rest Your Feet

Do apply ice to your feet for 10-20 minutes several times a day. Take care to make sure that the ice doesn’t come into direct contact with your skin. Ice won’t cure plantar fasciitis, but it can reduce inflammation and provide temporary pain relief.


Don't Put Off Treatment

Don’t wait too long to see a podiatrist. At-home remedies rarely work, and the longer you leave the condition untreated, the worse it will get and the more difficult it becomes to treat conservatively.
