Plantar fasciitis is the most commonly treated biomechanical condition treated by podiatrists. It can present as a sharp or aching pain under the heel, or as a pulling sensation in the arch of the foot. It can be in one or both feet at once. Common causes include activity (sport/work), footwear and foot posture. Pain is often associated with inflammation in the soft tissues, and is classically worst with the first step after rest. Our Podiatrists will design a program of exercises to improve mobility and comfort, and if needed, prescribe orthoses (orthotics) to correct foot posture and support your feet in a better position, and provide advice regarding footwear and activity modification.
