Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis

Heel pain that occurs on the bottom of the heel results from stretching within the soft tissues that make up the arch (plantar fascia). Prolonged standing, walking, running, poor foot structure, improper shoe gear and obesity are frequent causes. Your doctor has explained how your specific condition will be treated. The two most common approaches to treatment include reducing inflammation and supporting the heel. To reduce inflammation, oral medicine or a cortisone type injection may be recommended. To support the foot arch support devices (orthotics) and stable shoe gear are very helpful.

In conjunction to these treatments two simple exercises are recommended. Please click the button below for instructions.
