Are All Plantar Faciitis’ The Same?

Plantar fasciitis (bottom of the foot or heel pain)is always a very painful condition, and patients have a hard time figuring out how to ease their symptoms. They read something on the Web, or talk to their friend who suggests a technique or product that ‘cured’ them. They try it and it doesn’t work for them. This is because plantar fasciitis is a broad diagnostic term, and doesn’t address the underlying mechanical problem that causes the pain.

Not all plantar fasciitis’ are the same.

I currently have two patients, each with this diagnosis. Each has a completely different treatment program and both are improving. You need to consult with an advanced trained physical therapist to assess the underlying mechanics of the problem and create a treatment program tailored for you.
