Common Sports Related Injuries – Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain.  This is the inflammation of the thick band that runs along the bottom of the foot that connects your heel to your toes.  Many patients with this injury report stabbing pain when they take their first steps in the morning.  This pain normally decreases as you move around but will return with long periods of sitting or standing.  This is common in runners but can also occur in patients with shoes that do not have adequate support.  Treatment should include at home care under supervision of your podiatrist.  If you have Plantar Fasciitis and need to discuss your treatment options, click here to make an appointment –> 303-442-2910
