Understanding Plantar Fasciitis: What is it?

Plantar fasciitis is a very common condition seen by podiatrists. It is estimated that over 1 in 10 people will suffer from plantar fasciitis in their lifetime and is very susceptible to reoccur. It is caused by many factors such as age, overuse, poor flexibility, being overweight and athletic activity.

The plantar fascia, attaching to the heel bone and extending along the foot's arch to the toes, is a vital component of your foot's anatomy. This can be felt as a band under your foot's arch when you flex your toes. It plays a crucial role in supporting the arch's structure and absorbing shock during walking.

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.

Expect to feel pain relief within 1 to 2 weeks following our treatment plan. Post-symptom resolution, we'll establish preventive steps to avoid future recurrence of the issue.

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.
