Plantar Fascitis


Although listed as a sports injury this is a condition that affects those of us with tightness through the posterior calf complex and often fallen arches in the feet. The plantar fascia  is a broad aponeurosis which connects the heel bone to the metacarpal bones and is subjected to increased stress if there is tightness through the aforementioned structures. Although there are incidents of rupture which require a more radical approach and medical attention, it is the over use cases that plague most of its victims. Heel pain which is sign ificantly worse when initially walking after periods of rest is characteristic.  Pain relief from the physiotherapist combined with taping and a progressive strengthening and stretching regime bring about resolution. As it is an overuse injury relative rest from the activity which is exacerbating it is recommended.
