Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition characterized by recurrent heel pain. The condition is usually characterized by “First step pain.” This means that the patient reported sharp heel pain that shoots into the foot or up the leg. The bottom of the foot is very stiff and often fibrous adhesions appear in the fascia on the bottom of the foot.
If left too long, and treatment is not rendered appropriately, the bone in the heel can show elongation and sharpening. This painful spur can get so bad that surgical intervention is the only hope. However, in the presence of appropriate treatment and therapies such as the ones found at Benchmark Medical Group, a non-surgical option is available to many suffering patients. If you are suffering from this condition, call today to schedule a complimentary consultation to determine if you are a candidate for the state-of-the-art options that we provide.
