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.
