Plantar Fasciitis

Stay Fit. Pain Free.

Plantar Fasciitis. Heel Pain And Foot (plantar Fasciitis) Caused By Exercise.

Plantar Fasciitis is not just a simple ailment; it impedes daily life and happiness for many. At CWG Foot Care, we encounter numerous patients each year, each with a story of how this condition has thrown a wrench into their usual rhythm. 

From the moment they rise until they retire, they face a persistent throbbing that leaves them longing for relief. 

This often misunderstood malady finds its name from the ‘plantar fascia,’ a robust band of tissue that links the heel bone to the toes, forming the foot’s arch.

When this band is swollen, strained, or overused, it can become irritated, causing the classic symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis.

Those afflicted by Plantar Fasciitis are sometimes surprised by the pain, often describing it as a sharp, piercing ache near the heel – making the first few steps out of bed daunting. 

While the cause of Plantar Fasciitis can vary widely, it’s frequently associated with heavy foot stress – be it from prolonged periods of standing, an upsurge in exercise intensity, or weight gain. 

Additionally, those with either flat feet or high arches are particularly susceptible to developing this condition, as are those whose jobs put constant pressure on their feet.

Our Methodical Approach at CWG Foot Care

At CWG Foot Care, we approach each case of Plantar Fasciitis with a holistic methodology, treating not just the symptom but the entire individual. 

This begins with meticulously evaluating the foot structure, the patient’s activities, and the pain pattern. 

We leverage our deep knowledge and expertise in biomechanics to craft a treatment plan that’s progressive and patient-specific.

Comprehensive Assessment and Individualized Treatment

Our in-depth assessment process is intense and tailored to detail. We view each patient as unique, and so should their treatment plan. 

This type of attentiveness allows for pinpointed therapy, striking at the heart of the problem. 

We explore your daily activities, occupational demands, and athletic pursuits to unravel the intricacies of your condition.

Custom Orthotics for Personalized Support

Once thoroughly evaluating your situation, our certified pedorthists utilize precise measurements and state-of-the-art technology to create bespoke custom orthotics

Far from off-the-shelf solutions, these devices are individuated for your feet, specifically aiming to bolster your arches, cradle your heels, and restore your foot’s natural biomechanics.

Shoe Selection and Modification

The right type of shoe is paramount in managing plantar fasciitis. Orthotics alone are insufficient; they must be complemented with proper footwear that offers stability and comfort. 

We also possess the skills to modify existing footwear, ensuring an optimal fit and supportive experience.

Pain Relief Strategies and Recovery Planning

Our comprehensive care extends beyond the physical implementations. We recommend effective strategies to mitigate pain and inflammation, from stretching and strengthening exercises to ice massages and relaxation techniques.

Continued Patient Education and Support

Understanding Plantar Fasciitis is half the battle. We educate our patients on their condition, how their choices affect it, and tactics to circumvent future flare-ups. This education is a cornerstone to successful long-term management.
