What drives Plantar bursitis and Fasciitis is often undiscovered. It is usually associated with overutilization during high-impact exercise and sports and accounts for up to 9% of all running wounds. Because the status often takes place in only one foot, notwithstanding, factors other than overutilization are probably to responsible in some cases. Other causes of this injury include poorly-fitting shoes, deficiency of calf flexibility, or an irregular step that causes an abnormal and abrasive shock on the foot. Wear shoes that fit correctly and have good arch support. Replace athletic shoes regularly. The amount of shock to the foot increases dramatically as your shoes become more worn. Taper down. If your goal is to run bare foot and you’ve beenwearing highly supportive shoes, you need to taper down slowly, find someonewho is educated in this process like a chi running coach who can safely guideyou. The degree of seriousness of the injury will determine what options are available and appropriate for you. Applying a cure that is meant to be ‘preventative’ to a chronic injury may make it worse. Plantar fasciitis is a soft tissue injury. The only way to really ‘see’ it is with an MRI and your doctor is going to be hesitant to schedule that expensive procedure just because you say your foot hurts. Chronic heel pain at times cannot be cured with icing, stretching, anti-inflammatories and orthotics alone. Surgery doesn't have to be the next alternative. The shock waves can also act to over-stimulate pain transmission nerves, leading to a reduction in sensitivity and discomfort. Not all foot and ankle problems consist of chronic heel pain, hammertoe or bunions. Sometimes foot deformities require reconstructive surgery of the foot. Get a new pair of shoes. Pick shoes with good archsupport and a cushioned sole. Or try heel cups or shoe inserts ( orthotics ). Use them in both shoes, even if only onefoot hurts. One common feet pain condition called plantar fasciitis, arises as a result of little rips in the section of the foot where the back heel attaches to the heel bone. Several things might cause plantar fasciitis to develop like weight problems, improper running techniques, too-small athletic shoes, or an excessive amount of foot pressure. Oftentimes, you can prevent the occurrence of this problem by wearing footwear that fit properly. One of the leading causes of plantar fasciitis problems are from sneakers that don't fit appropriately. You should definitely do not use flip flops, shoes or other footwear that is lacking good shock absorption for your feet. APC (Autologus Platelet Concentrate) or Platelet Rich Plasma injection -> Another relatively new treatment that concentrates the cells most beneficial in healing as taken from the patient and reintroduce these cells percutaneously into the inflammed plantar fascia. The idea is to stimulate healing through injection (the simple act of inserting a needle can stimulate healing) and further stimulate healing through use of healing cells injected into the desired site. The Plantar Fascia is a thick band of fibrous tissue which helps provide support to the arch of your foot. If it becomes injured it can cause pain, most commonly found around the under side of your heel.
