Plantar fasciitis is a condition that involves pain and inflammation along the arch of the foot in the tissue that runs from the calcaneus or heel bone to the forefoot. Some people experience pain in the arch of the foot while others experience the discomfort more towards the heel bone depending on where the tissues are breaking down. Over time a bone spur may form on the front of the calcaneus as the body attempts to stabilize the area. The bone spur can contribute to the pain.

The main cause of plantar fasciitis is from repetitive tearing of these tissues from a fallen or dropped arch. Treatment approaches involve supporting the arch with orthotics and assisting soft tissue healing and repair. Ultrasound or cold laser may be used on the soft tissues to promote healing. Stretches and exercises can be given to further assist in the healing cascade.Pain in the foot is not always from tearing of the plantar fascia. Other causes include neuromas, peripheral neuropathy, tendon tears, arthritis and joint degeneration, gout, bone bruises and fractures. It is particularly important to have an accurate diagnosis before a treatment plan is formed.
