Pain Conditions Overview
What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis is an irritation of the plantar fascia – a band of tissue that extends from the heel bone (called the calcaneus) to the ball of the foot.
It supports the foots natural arch and stretches mildly whenever the foot bears weight. This condition can be painful when walking or standing and can often limit physical activities that involve running, jumping and large amounts of pressure to the feet.
Depending on the severity and pain related to plantar fasciitis, our pain management doctors may perform procedures and physical therapy to reduce and relieve foot pain.
