Finding Relief from Plantar Fasciitis at Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain, particularly among athletes and those who spend a lot of time on their feet. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we specialize in treating plantar fasciitis, using a combination of advanced techniques and personalized care to alleviate pain and restore function.

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis involves inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. It's often characterized by a stabbing pain that usually occurs with the first steps in the morning or after long periods of standing.

Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis

  • Sharp pain in the heel or along the arch of the foot
  • Pain that worsens in the morning or after sitting for a long time
  • Tenderness along the bottom of the foot
  • Swelling and stiffness in the heel area

Our Comprehensive Treatment Approach

We offer a range of treatment options, tailored to the severity of your condition:

  • Physical Therapy: Exercises to stretch the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon, and to strengthen lower leg muscles.
  • Orthotic Devices: Custom shoe inserts or supportive footwear to distribute pressure more evenly.
  • Night Splints: To stretch your calf and the arch of your foot while you sleep.
  • Medication: Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) to reduce pain and inflammation.

Advanced Treatment Options

For persistent cases, we may consider:

  • Shockwave Therapy: Non-invasive treatment using sound waves to stimulate healing.
  • Corticosteroid Injections: To provide temporary relief from pain and inflammation.
  • Laser Therapy: For pain relief and to reduce inflammation.
