Need a physio for heel pain this summer?

Do you need a physio for heel pain? One of the most frequent causes of heel pain is plantar fasciitis and since it’s unlikely to heal on its own, it’s also one of the most frequent problems we treat in our clinic. So what is plantar fasciitis? What causes it? How can a physio near me treat my heel pain?

What is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia that runs along the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. The plantar fascia is a thick ligament that supports the arch of your foot; whilst it’s designed to be strong, it can be damaged, torn or inflamed.

The result is a dull or sharp pain, ache or burning sensation, under your heel. It’s often felt when you first get out of bed in the morning, after prolonged sitting or standing, and after intense activity. Making an appointment with a physio for your heel pain is your best solution because it can interfere with your ability to function and enjoy life.

What causes it?

Wearing shoes with poor arch support is one of the causes of this condition, as are flat feet and high arches. It’s also more common in overweight people and pregnant women.

Plantar fasciitis is a complaint we see frequently during the summer months when people are on holiday and wear thongs or walk around in bare feet. If you wear thongs frequently during the summer or at any other time of the year, Body Active arch support thongs are a great solution!
