Essex Plantar Fasciitis Pain Management & Injury Recovery

Your Essex based Physiotherapists

Plantar fasciitis is a common foot condition characterized by inflammation and pain in the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that supports the arch of the foot. This condition can cause significant discomfort and hinder daily activities. Physiotherapy offers effective treatments for plantar fasciitis, focusing on reducing pain, promoting healing, and restoring optimal foot function.

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis typically develops due to repetitive strain or overuse of the plantar fascia. Some common causes and risk factors include:

  • Excessive Physical Activity: Engaging in activities that involve prolonged standing, walking, or running can put stress on the plantar fascia.
  • Foot Mechanics: Flat feet, high arches, or abnormal foot mechanics can lead to uneven distribution of weight and increased strain on the plantar fascia.
  • Poor Footwear: Wearing shoes with inadequate support or improper fit can contribute to the development of plantar fasciitis.
  • Age and Weight: The condition is more prevalent in middle-aged individuals and those who are overweight or obese.

The primary symptom of plantar fasciitis is pain, which is often experienced on the bottom of the foot, near the heel. The pain is typically worse in the morning or after periods of inactivity, and it may subside or lessen with movement. Other symptoms may include stiffness, tenderness, and difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected foot.

Assessment & Diagnosis

When seeking physiotherapy treatment for plantar fasciitis, a thorough assessment and diagnosis are essential. Our qualified physiotherapist will evaluate the individual's medical history and perform physical examinations. This comprehensive approach helps identify the underlying causes and determine the most suitable treatment options.
