Plantar fasciitis is a very common condition which affects more than 3 million people each year. This condition is caused by inflammation to the thick band of tissue that connects the heel bone to tarsal bones located towards the front of the foot. Plantar fascia is a flat band of tissue that connects the heel bone to the tarsal (foot) bones. This plantar fascia helps maintain and support the arch of your foot. If you strain this fascial tissue it becomes inflamed and foot pain develops which is worsened with standing and walking.
Our Rego Park physical therapists have years of experience treating this condition typically with excellent results. However, occasionally an individual will benefit from a foot orthotic (insert) or cortisone injection. We don’t perform cortisone injections in our office for plantar fasciitis but work with excellent podiatrists in the area who do. If we cannot get you better we will always refer you to somebody who can. Call today 718-730-9040
