Plantar Fasciitis Advanced

What is Plantar Fasciitis?

What is Plantar Fasciitis?
Plantar Fasciitis is a common foot injury that often affects runners, hikers, dancers, and those that stand for a living. Your Plantar Fascia is connective tissue that starts on the heel bone, runs along the arch of your foot and connects to your toes. This band of tissue gets overstretched through time and repetitive motion and becomes inflamed which causes heel pain and tenderness.

How will therapy help?
If this pain is something you have been dealing with, the good news is that physical therapy can help! At Advanced Physical Therapy, we build individual programs for each patient to meet their needs.

Our first goal for patients with plantar fasciitis is to decrease pain. We often start with gentle lower extremity and ankle stretches, tissue massage and Astym, Ultrasound, and possibly taping.

What should you expect?
Once pain has decreased, we work on regaining all ankle motion, strength, balance through exercises and activities. We also may look at your shoes and make suggestions on changing what footwear you use.
