May 18, 2017



The Five Goals of Treating Plantar Fasciitis


The plantar fascia is a connective tissue that helps to support the arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia. Typically it presents itself as an increased pain in the heel. It can range from a minor annoyance to a rather debilitating injury. There are several things you can do in order to help reduce pain from plantar fasciitis:

  1. Improve ankle mobility

  2. Reduce adhesions

  3. Decrease muscle tightness

  4. Improve strength

  5. Reduce Pain


A simple home exercise program consisting of calf stretches, plantar fascia rolling, calf raises, and activity modification (avoid walking barefoot and utilize supportive footwear) will help. Another option to improve plantar fasciitis is the Strassburg Sock, which helps to reduce flexion contracture's that occur while sleeping. Ultimately, a physical therapist can help to expedite the healing process and get you back on your feet more quickly!
