Recover From Plantar Fasciitis At Cross Bay Physical Therapy
Plantar Fasciitis is a common foot condition caused by several factors. It is easily treatable with a consistent physical therapy program. At Cross Bay Physical Therapy, we specialize in helping patients relieve their plantar fasciitis foot condition.
Plantar Fasciitis is usually caused by a combination of tight muscles, inadequate footwear, and a sudden increase in intense activity. Tight muscles like tight foot and calf muscles tighten the plantar fascia band putting a strain on this tissue located in the arch of the foot. During every movement, the tight plantar fascia band is then susceptible to tissue damage eventually leading to a weakened plantar fascia band and the pain condition known as plantar fasciitis.
Removing The Causes Of Plantar Fasciitis Pain
In addition, incorrect footwear and orthotics often harms the feet as the plantar fascia band weakens. People have different foot shapes and different types of shoes are made for different foot shapes. For example, two common types of foot shapes are flat feet and high-arched feet, which have to do with the shape of the person’s foot arches. People with flat feet should be wearing shoes that support this foot type but without knowing may buy shoes that support a high-arch foot type.
Different shoes in the shoe store are made for different types of feet and if you buy the wrong one for your feet, it will harm your feet as you constantly move around. Additionally, cheap in soles can harm your feet as well as they are also inadequate for the different shapes of feet that people have.
Finally, a sudden increase in activity is the perfect storm to create tissue damage in the plantar fascia band and create downward spiral of pain and immobility. This leads to constant heel and foot pain and the condition known as plantar fasciitis.
With consistent physical therapy, it is quite easy to heal yourself of plantar fasciitis. Our Howard Beach physical therapists focus on loosening tight muscles while simultaneously strengthening your plantar fascia band. By building up the plantar fascia band, your feet will be ready for normal daily activity.
As a side note, some patients have already tried physical therapy and they continue to experience pain. In this case, you may have a small tear of the plantar fascia band, which makes this condition harder to heal. In this case, you will want to visit a podiatrist that is experienced in PRP Therapy as PRP Therapy is a natural treatment that can quickly heal a plantar fascia band tear.
Physical Therapy makes plantar fasciitis treatment simple and we have a proven track record for helping our patients overcome this foot condition.
