PLANTAR FASCIITIS


Two common conditions that can cause pain to the bottom of the heel are plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Although there are many causes of heel pain in children and adults, most can be effectively treated without surgery. When chronic heel pain fails to respond to conservative treatment, surgical care may be warranted. 

Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of a fibrous band of tissue in the bottom of the foot that extends from the heel bone to the toes. This tissue can become inflamed for many reasons, most commonly from irritation by placing too much stress (such as excess running and jumping) on the bottom of the foot.

Heel spurs, or heel spur syndrome, are most often the result of stress on the muscles and fascia of the foot. This stress may form a spur on the bottom of the heel. While many spurs are painless, others may produce chronic pain.

The expert podiatric physicians and surgeons at Ankle & Foot Care Centers can provide skilled diagnosis and treatment, surgical or otherwise, for rearfoot conditions such as these. To schedule an appointment at one of 20 Ohio locations, contact us today.
