How to Treat Plantar Fasciitis

The plantar fascia is a strong ligament of connective tissue which spans the length of the foot.

 

Normal Length of Plantar Fascia with no weight on foot.

Problem #1: "Standing Stretch", The foot elongates and the fascia is stretched and injured.

Solution #1: Foot orthotics and proper footwear stop foot elongation.

 

 

Problem #2: At night, "retraction" occurs and the fascia retracts past the normal, non-weight bearing length. The fascia gets tighter and repairs tissue in a shortened length.

Solution #2: A plantar fascia night splint will prevent the fascia from retracting and help the fascia repair in the proper length, thus breaking the cycle of standing stretch and night retraction of the fascia.

Problem #3: Patient gets out of bed and the foot hits the floor, the foot is elongated again and the fascia is pulled too long and injured again.

Solution #3: The foot orthotics are transferred to sandals with removable foot beds. The rapid foot elongation is prevented and the fascia pulling and injury is prevented.

 

This mechanical treatment with orthotics, shoes, night splint and orthotics in sandals is augmented with Radial Shockwave Therapy.
