Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the thick band of tissue (plantar fascia) that connects the heel bone to the toes and supports the arch of your foot. It is the most common cause of heel pain, and typically occurs by repeated strain of the plantar fascia, causing tiny tears that can lead to pain and swelling. This is more likely to happen to people who:

  • Roll their feet inward when they walk
  • Are overweight
  • Have high arches or flat feet
  • Walk, stand, or run for long periods of time
  • Have tight Achilles tendons or calf muscles
  • Wear shoes that don’t fit well or are worn down

At AOSMI, treatment for plantar fasciitis usually involves non-operative treatments, such as bracing, injections, ultrasound therapy medication management, and damage tissue regeneration (EPAT). We even have a state-of-the-art physical therapy center onsite to help aid in your recovery. If all of our conservative treatment methods prove unsuccessful, your doctor will sit down with you to go over the surgical options we offer as a last resort.
