What exactly is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a condition podiatrists often see and is widely prevalent. Statistics suggest that more than one out of every ten people may experience plantar fasciitis in their lifetime, with a high chance of it recurring. Various factors contribute to its onset, including ageing, overuse, insufficient flexibility, being overweight, and participating in sports.

Your plantar fascia, a key element of your foot, connects the heel bone to the base of your toes, running across the foot's arch. When you curl your toes and touch your foot's arch, you can notice this structure. It's essential for upholding the arch's shape and cushioning your steps.

Plantar fasciitis usually manifests as heel pain, which is often more intense in the morning or after periods of rest. Due to its resistance to many treatments, a well-organised and thorough treatment strategy is essential for addressing this problem.

Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis

At Melbourne Podiatry Clinic we deal with many cases of plantar fasciitis on a daily basis and we have a proven track record in providing long-term relief.

Our treatment involves two important steps:

Encourage Tissue Repair:

  • Shockwave therapy - is a proven treatment option and helps fast-track the natural repair process (see video below)
  • Soft tissue modalities
  • Dry needling
  • Exercises

Removing the stress - it is key to reduce the stress from the plantar fascia to allow it to heal. We use a combination of targeted offloading techniques including:

  • Taping
  • Shoe modifications
  • Shoe inserts (orthotics) - if more aggressive offloading is required.

With our treatment plan, you can expect the pain to start settling in 1 - 2 weeks. Once the symptoms have resolved we will put in place steps to prevent this issue from ever returning.

In case your plantar fasciitis is not improving, schedule a visit for a detailed evaluation, and we’ll work towards restoring your ability to enjoy your preferred activities.
