Plantar fasciitis occurs when the strong band of tissue that supports the arch of your foot becomes irritated and inflamed. The plantar fascia is a long, thin ligament that lies directly beneath the skin on the bottom of your foot. The plantar fascia is designed to absorb the high stresses and strains we place on our feet. Although many people with plantar fasciitis have heel spurs, spurs are not the cause of plantar fasciitis pain. After you describe your symptoms and discuss your concerns, your doctor will examine your foot.


Your doctor may order imaging tests to help make sure your heel pain is caused by plantar fasciitis and not another problem. Other imaging tests, such as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and ultrasound, are not routinely used to diagnose plantar fasciitis. More than 90% of patients with plantar fasciitis will improve within 10 months of starting simple treatment methods. One out of 10 people has heel spurs, but only 1 out of 20 people (5%) with heel spurs has foot pain. During this procedure, high-energy shockwave impulses stimulate the healing process in damaged plantar fascia tissue. The body's natural response to injury is inflammation, which results in the heel pain and stiffness of plantar fasciitis. Because the spur is not the cause of plantar fasciitis, the pain can be treated without removing the spur.


Using the medication for more than 1 month should be reviewed with your primary care doctor. Stretching your calves and plantar fascia is the most effective way to relieve the pain that comes with this condition.
Grasp the toes of your painful foot and slowly pull them toward you in a controlled fashion. If it is difficult to reach your foot, wrap a towel around your big toe to help pull your toes toward you.
Multiple steroid injections can cause the plantar fascia to rupture (tear), which can lead to a flat foot and chronic pain.
