Pain can be caused by a variety of different problems so a thorough examination and possibly diagnostic imaging would need to be done to determine the cause of your pain. Heel pain can be caused by misalignment of the ankle or foot bones, heel spurs, achilles tendonopathy, ligament sprain, stress fracture, or a variety of other issues.
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.
The staff at Frisco Spinal Rehab is knowledgeable and experienced in dealing with different types of foot pain.

Most tennis players I see usually have one or two bones misaligned within their foot. Additionally, they usually may have a preexisting sprained ankle that did not heal completely. I am trained in an advanced soft-tissue technique called MyoFascial Disruption Technique. This particular technique allows the doctor to assist the body to heal quicker than the conventional means (R.I.C.E. & U.S.).
