Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)

Plantar Fasciitis (Heel Pain)

If the pain in your heel is impacting how you move,
how you feel and how you live, then it’s time to get help from My FootDr.

Plantar fasciitis (heel pain) is a common condition causing severe pain under the heel bone. Pain in the heel or pain in the arch often indicates inflammation of the long band of tissue under the foot (the plantar fascia).

Heel pain can cause sharp pain and discomfort in either the mid-arch region or at the inside heel, and less commonly the outside heel. People with plantar fasciitis generally describe the pain as a stone bruise type pain, or as if they are walking on a stone or a bony heel spur.

Often, the pain in the morning is worse with the few initial steps, after sitting down or towards the end of the day. The pain is caused by micro-tears to the plantar fascia (the long tight tendon/cord under the arch) at the attachment point under the heel bone. Left untreated, the pain will persist for a long time.
