WHAT IS PLANTAR FASCIITIS?
Plantar fasciitis is the most common cause of foot and heel pain presenting to Posturepro’s Greenacres physiotherapy practice.
The plantar fascia is a band of connective tissue that runs from your heel to your toes, helping to create the arch of your foot. The plantar fascia works as a very important shock absorber and, if overloaded, may develop micro tears in the tissue, resulting in inflammation and significant heel pain. The most effective way to resolve plantar fasciitis is by understanding the condition and addressing the underlying causes.
Part of what we do at Posturepro Physiotherapy Adelaide is get to know you and your symptoms so we can do a full assessment to advise the best treatment for you. This might include custom orthotic prescriptions or another treatment for Plantar Fasciitis.
