Treatment for Heel Pain at Pro Physio SA

plantar-fasciitis

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar Fasciitis is an overuse condition of the plantar fascia, which is a band of connective tissue which runs from the heel to the ball of the foot. Overloading of this structure can cause bruising or overstretching of this ligament which can cause inflammation and pain. In some cases, it may be related to a heel spur. Surprisingly, the spur itself does not cause pain and may often be found in the other foot without symptoms.

How is Plantar Fasciitis Diagnosed?

Musculoskeletal and Sports Physiotherapists are highly trained in assessing and identifying the contributing factors which may be contributing to developing Plantar Fasciitis. At ProPhysio SA the physiotherapists thoroughly and meticulously assess your injury and adopt an evidence-based approach to your management and rehabilitation.

What Physio Treatment is available for Plantar Fasciitis?

Here at Pro Physio SA, our  highly trained physiotherapists are able to help you by providing appropriate advice regarding footwear, education regarding warming up, stretching and cool down, as well as treating the contributing factors to the problem.

This treatment may include:

  • Stretching of the plantar fascia, as well as the calf muscle
  • Massage
  • Dry Needling/Acupuncture
  • Prescription of orthotics
  • Designing an appropriate strengthening program for the calf muscle and small muscles of the foot
