Stepping Past Heel Pain and Plantar Fasciitis

At Sole Focus Foot and Ankle, we see quite a lot of heel pain stemming from plantar fasciitis. This widespread condition causes inflammation in the plantar fascia – the band of tissue connecting your heel to your toes. And it hurts.

What can we do to help you step past the problem? To start, we’ll break down how to spot it, then follow up with some proven treatment options we might use to get you moving pain free again.

Plantar Fasciitis: Recognizing the Signs

The plantar fascia acts as a shock absorber and supporter for the arch of your foot. When it becomes strained or inflamed, it can lead to sharp, stabbing pain in the heel. Being aware of the symptoms can help you seek treatment sooner and deal with the problem when it’s more manageable, so watch for:

  • Sharp or stabbing pain in the heel that worsens upon waking.
  • Discomfort after prolonged sitting or standing.
  • Pain that eases with activity.
  • Heel tenderness.
  • Stiffness in the foot, especially in the mornings.
