Plantar Fasciitis Treatment & Surgery
Do you have severe pain in your foot, ankle, or heel –you might be suffering from plantar fasciitis.
What is Plantar Fasciitis
The plantar fascia is a flat band of tissue (ligament) that builds a connection between your toes and heel bone. This tissue also supports the foot arch. In case during a walk and other activities your plantar fascia goes through strain, it becomes weak, inflamed, and irritated. You might feel pain, sensations, and pinning. Your heel or the foot bottom starts hurting when you stand or walk. This condition is known as Plantar Fasciitis.
It is very common among middle-aged people. It might be a problem for youngsters too if they have a routine in which they are on their feet a lot. For instance soldiers, athletes or filed workers.
What are the symptoms?
A Plantar Fasciitis patient goes through mild to severe pain when they take their first steps after resting for a long time like when they wake up and try to get out of bed or after sitting for a long time during office shift. When they take a few steps the stiffness in muscles and pain gradually minimizes in most cases. But your feet may hurt more and more as the day goes on. Climbing the stairs and walking over a rough path is usually painful.
