Is heel pain causing you pain and discomfort? Heel pain is one of the most common and easily treated foot conditions. Heel pain is not just common in women who wear high heels and shoes without adequate support as many people suffer from it. Plantar Fasciitis is the medical term for heel pain and it means that the sole of your foot is overused or stressed.
Who is at risk?
- People who are overweight
- People who have a laborious job (walking, running a lot)
- People with flat feet
- Runners and athletes
- Mild pain when waking up
- Sharp pain after exercise or activity
- Pain after long term sitting or standing
Leaving plantar fasciitis untreated may lead to serious conditions. You may feel less energetic or agile in the short term, and may develop pain or inflammation in other areas of your body over time.
If you or someone you know may be suffering from plantar fasciitis, contact a board certified podiatrist immediately. Getting prompt treatment for plantar fasciitis is the best thing you can do for your feet.
