“Reach Out To The Best Care For Your Feet!” FOOT & HEEL PAIN RELIEF

Why Does My Foot Hurt? Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the thick tissue on the bottom of the foot. This tissue is called the plantar fascia. It connects the heel bone to the toes and creates the arch of the foot. Plantar fasciitis occurs when the thick band of tissue on the bottom of the foot is overstretched or overused. This can be painful and make walking more difficult. Physical therapy is an effective treatment for plantar fasciitis by using stretches and manual therapy to restore mobility to the foot.

Foot and shin pain can come on from many different causes. The most common causes develop from changes in the way you walk, un-supportive footwear, long term standing, walking, or running.
