What is plantar fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It occurs when the ligament connecting your heel bone to your toes — the plantar fascia—is irritated and inflamed.
It is often caused by overuse, either from running or jumping for too long. While rest and foot stretches can give some relief, if plantar fasciitis is left untreated, a very painful calcium deposit called a heel spur may develop. Plantar fasciitis symptoms
The main symptom is an intense, stabbing pain at the bottom of the foot, near the heel, particularly when taking the first steps after getting out of bed in the morning. This pain typically gets worse after exercise.
Treatment for plantar fasciitis
Often, plantar fasciitis can be treated without surgery. This typically involves:
- Stretching exercises
- Specialized, supportive shoes
- Applying ice
- Cortisone injections
- Physical therapy
Endoscopic plantar fasciotomy
Sometimes surgery may be needed to provide relief. At EmergeOrtho, we offer an endoscopic plantar fasciotomy. This minimally invasive procedure uses an endoscope to lengthen calf muscles or partially cut the ligament to relieve pressure.
Our dedication to minimally invasive surgery has made us leaders in our field. We concentrate on treating the entire patient–not just a set of symptoms. EmergeOrtho has helped thousands of patients successfully recover from plantar fasciitis through our expertise and comprehensive care.
