Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis

Specific symptoms include heel pain during initial steps after rest (like sleeping or sitting), sore arches, and swelling. Combined, both feet contain 52 bones, 66 joints, thousands of muscle fibers, ligaments, and tendons. They are exposed on a daily basis to thousands of pounds of stress resulting in the possibility of injury and inflammation. Excessive inflammation and prolonged use creates scar tissue resulting in tender arches and heel pain. Treatment includes cryotherapy (ice), Instrument Assisted Soft Tissue Mobilization (IASTM), proper stretching, and footwear modification.
