Plantar fasciitis leads to severe, stabbing foot and heel pain, which can make it difficult to perform daily tasks. It’s common for sufferers to experience flare-ups first thing in the morning or after sitting for long periods. Soreness and tenderness from this condition can also flare up after long periods of activity.
If these symptoms sound familiar, there is help available. Here at LePoer Podiatry, we offer custom orthotics and cortisone injections to treat this condition. Connect with our Providence office today to learn more and get the care you deserve.
What Is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar fasciitis is a chronic condition that leads to lingering foot and heel pain. It’s caused by inflammation of your plantar fascia, the long band of connective tissues that link your toes to your heel bone. While anyone of any age can develop this condition, it most commonly affects adults between the ages of 40-60, especially if you work in a field that requires you to be on your feet all day.
Your plantar fascia can become inflamed because of:
- Heel spurs
- Flat feet
- High arches
- Excess body weight
