What is Plantar Fasciitis?
There is a large amount of often misleading advice surrounding the diagnosis, causes and treatments surrounding plantar fasciitis. In short, plantar fasciitis is generally characterised by pain directly underneath the heel where the plantar fascia, a supportive band of strong fascia attaches into the heel. There are micro-fibre tears often seen on ultrasound and the fascia becomes thickened. This condition depending on the severity and duration of symptoms can have an inflammatory component but also degeneration of the injured tissue. Treating the symptoms does not always address the causes which need to be a key focus point of any treatment plan.
