Plantar Fasciitis Treatments Niagara – Elio’s Foot Comfort Centre

Plantar Fasciitis is known to cause extreme pain and can be a chronic health condition, commonly connected with the degeneration, swelling or inflammation of the plantar fascia, located in the underside of the heel. The function of the plantar fascia is to provide overall shock absorption, and arch support.

Studies for Plantar Fasciitis treatments show that obesity, weight gain, prolonged periods of weight-bearing and abrupt changes in physical activity with directional change can be the source.

Many things can cause heel pain. Plantar Fasciitis is the most common. This condition is characterized by pain that occurs in the morning when first getting out of bed and weight bearing, or after periods of rest. Some other causes of heel pain may be one of the following ailments:
  • Tarsal Tunnel Syndrome
  • stress fractures
  • fat pad atrophy
  • systemic inflammatory
