The plantar fascia band is on the bottom of your foot and it helps to support your arch. Once the fascia is inflamed, the whole foot can ache and a patient might even start limping. Our office has numerous methods to help decrease the inflammation that causes the plantar fascia to become painful. These include:
- Stretching Exercises
- Cortisone Injections
- Arch Strapping
Our office usually will determine if your insurance plan will cover custom orthotics and a night splint, two of the most common treatments for this painful foot condition. Usually, with the above treatments, the pain will resolve. If it doesn’t a surgical release of the tight plantar fascia might be needed.
