How We Treat Plantar Fasciitis

It has become a daily dread: that thought of slipping your feet out from beneath the covers and setting them on the floor, knowing you will get a jolt of stabbing or shooting pain under your heel until your feet “limber up.” And those first steps after standing or sitting a while? You can expect them to be awful, too. Heel pain is not something you have to keep in your daily routine, however. There are both conservative and minimally invasive ways to treat plantar fasciitis, and the best option for you may depend on your specific situation. treat-plantar-fasciitis

In some cases, the use of a custom-made orthotic device can relieve the symptoms of plantar fasciitis by properly redistributing weight and realigning the abnormal shifting that can contribute to the problem.

In some cases, we may also recommend pain relief and recovery-assisting techniques such as pain laser therapy or extracorporeal shock wave therapy (ESWT). Each treatment uses different methods to encourage the healing process by increasing blood flow and accelerating the cellular healing process.

Although these and other options are available, no plantar fasciitis treatment begins until we have a full understanding of your condition and its severity. There is no need to endure the pain of this condition anymore. Take the first steps toward comfort and relief by calling Ottawa Foot Practice toll-free at (844) 335-6208.
