Do You Have Heel or Arch Pain?
If you have pain in your heel or arch you may have a condition called plantar fasciitis. If treated correctly you could have improvement within a couple of days. Plantar fasciitis is one of the most common causes of heel pain. It involves pain and inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of your foot and connects your heel bone to your toes.
If you have a stabbing pain when you first step out of bed in the morning that eases up the more you walk around then you may have plantar fasciitis. Call Dr. Hollander today, 707-578-1222, to schedule an appointment. Dr. Hollander has a treatment algorithm that has helped heal hundreds of patients.
Ignoring plantar fasciitis may result in chronic heel pain that hinders your regular activities. If you change the way you walk to minimize plantar fasciitis pain, you might also develop foot, knee, hip or back problems.
