Plantar Fasciitis is inflammation of the plantar fascia, a thick tissue, along the sole of your foot. This condition results in significant pain with the first few steps in the morning and with prolonged walking. Plantar fasciitis may coincide with heel spurs. Individuals with plantar fasciitis can benefit from physiotherapy to help with pain management through the use of ultrasound, laser or shockwave therapy. Stretches to the plantar fascia and calf will be an important part of physiotherapy along with education regarding proper footwear.
