Plantar Fasciitis


Plantar fasciitis can be a painful and debilitating condition, but with the help of physical therapy and an experienced physical therapist it can be addressed effectively. Physical therapy for plantar fasciitis may include stretching exercises, massage, strengthening exercises, ultrasound, taping or bracing, orthotic devices and lifestyle modifications. The goal of physical therapy is to improve flexibility while reducing pain in the plantar fascia. By increasing flexibility in the plantar fascia and surrounding muscles, plantar fasciitis symptoms can begin to lessen quickly. A physical therapist will design an individualized treatment plan based on your specific needs.


In addition to providing relief from plantar fasciitis pain, physical therapists can also provide guidance on how to prevent plantar fasciitis from recurring. This can include suggestions for proper shoe selection, advice on stretching techniques and other lifestyle modifications that can help reduce the likelihood of plantar fasciitis flare-ups.


Physical therapy is an effective way to manage plantar fasciitis and experienced physical therapists are able to provide comprehensive care tailored to your individual needs. If you are experiencing plantar fasciitis pain, contact a physical therapist today to get started on the road to recovery. They will create a treatment plan that will help reduce pain and improve flexibility so you can start moving comfortably again!

Treatment of Plantar Fasciitis and Plantar Fascia Injuries


Plantar fasciitis is a painful condition experienced in the bottom of the foot, and physical therapy techniques can be used to effectively treat it. Physical therapists use a variety of stretching, strengthening, and soft tissue release exercises to reduce inflammation and promote healing in the area. Therapists may also use modalities such as electrical stimulation or ultrasound, mechanical traction, manual physical therapy, taping, braces and shoe orthotics to manage pain symptoms. Every physical therapy program for a patient with plantar fasciitis is uniquely tailored to their needs by a physical therapist who will provide individualized instructions for proper home exercise for maintenance of pain relief. Through physical therapy, patients of plantar fasciitis can expect to get back on their feet quickly.
