Plantar Fasciitis Pain Treatment
The heel bone is connected to the ball and toes of the foot by the plantar fascia, a fibrous tissue that creates and protects the arch of the foot. When the plantar fascia is irritated or overused, it can become inflamed, causing a painful foot condition called plantar fasciitis. Caliber Pain™ offers interventional medicine options for plantar fasciitis pain treatment at our medical facility in New York City.
Causes and Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common foot pain disorders, affecting millions of people of all ages and genders. The plantar fascia on the bottom of the foot can be irritated or damaged under many different conditions. Structural issues in the feet, like a low arch or flat feet, can put stress on the plantar fascia. Obesity, shoes with poor arch support, walking barefoot or excessive time on your feet can all contribute to plantar fasciitis. Symptoms include:
- Heel pain
- Pain in the foot arch
- Heel pain in the morning or after time off your feet
- Worsening symptoms over time
Conservative treatments and lifestyle changes can be effective at managing mild plantar fasciitis. Losing weight, wearing appropriate arch support, stretching exercises and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs can help reduce foot pain and inflammation of the plantar fascia. For moderate to severe cases, interventional medicine and other therapies can offer relief. Caliber Pain™ can offer effective plantar fasciitis pain treatment for those not able to obtain relief through conservative treatments.
