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. The key to recovery is an early evaluation and treatment plan developed by a physical therapist. The therapists at Physical Therapy & Rehab Specialists will determine the cause of your problem and quickly decrease your pain. They will help you find the correct balance between strength and flexibility. This allows you to have pain free walking or running and return to activity as soon as possible. Help To Relieve Your Foot Pain Physical therapy is the natural way of helping your body recover from ankle/foot pain. At Physical Therapy & Rehab Specialists, your pain is extensively evaluated by an expert physical therapist who has years of training in medical evaluation of musculoskeletal and ankle/foot conditions. WHY DOES YOUR FOOT HURT?
