Plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the tissue that joins the heel to the toes and forms the arch of the foot. It is very common and can be hard to treat if it goes undiagnosed for an extended period of time. Premier Foot can help to ease the pain this condition brings with innovative treatment. Here is more information on this disease:
Plantar fasciitis can occur when the ligament that supports the arch of the foot is strained. It may be more common in people who have high arches or feet that are flat. Jobs that require standing, walking or running on hard surfaces for long period may be more likely to develop this condition. They include athletes, soldiers, surgeons, waiters and hair dressers. It may also be the result of weight gain or old age. Ill-fitting and worn out shoes can contribute to the discomfort.
Pain typically occurs when you get out of bed in the morning and take the first few steps. After the initial steps, the pain may subside. The discomfort may return if you sit still for a long period and then walk again. Climbing stairs and standing for long periods of time can be particularly uncomfortable. The McKinney foot pain clinic specializes in helping people with this type of discomfort.
