Plantar Fasciatis

Plantar Fasciatis

Plantar fasciitis can be a relentless source of heel pain, making every step you take a painful ordeal. It's a condition that can significantly impact your daily life, from the moment you step out of bed in the morning. At Physio Active, we understand the frustration and discomfort that plantar fasciitis can bring. Our dedicated team of physiotherapists is here to help you step pain-free once more, providing you with the relief and solutions you need to regain your mobility.


Understanding the Complexity of Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis occurs when the plantar fascia, a thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot, becomes inflamed or irritated. This inflammation typically results from excessive strain on the plantar fascia, leading to micro-tears in the tissue. The causes of plantar fasciitis can be diverse and may include:


  • Overuse: Repetitive activities that put stress on the plantar fascia, such as running, can contribute to the development of plantar fasciitis.

  • Poor Foot Mechanics: Abnormalities in foot mechanics, like flat feet or high arches, can increase the risk of plantar fasciitis.

  • Improper Footwear: Wearing shoes with inadequate arch support or poorly cushioned soles can exacerbate the condition.

  • Weight Gain:Excess body weight can increase the strain on the plantar fascia, contributing to the development of plantar fasciitis.


The Physio Active Approach to Plantar Fasciitis Treatment

At Physio Active, we take a comprehensive and personalized approach to the treatment of plantar fasciitis. Our goal is to not only alleviate your pain but also address the underlying causes, allowing you to regain full foot health and function.


  • Comprehensive Assessment

Your journey towards a pain-free foot begins with a comprehensive assessment conducted by our experienced physiotherapists. During this assessment, we will review your medical history, conduct a detailed physical examination, and may recommend diagnostic imaging, such as X-rays, to accurately diagnose the extent of your plantar fasciitis. This assessment forms the foundation for your personalized treatment plan.


  • Pain Management

For individuals experiencing acute pain, our initial focus is on pain management. We employ various pain-relief modalities, including ice and heat therapy, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation, to alleviate pain and reduce inflammation. Our primary aim is to enhance your comfort and mobility.


  • Physiotherapy and Exercise

Physiotherapy is a crucial component of plantar fasciitis treatment at Physio Active. Our skilled physiotherapists will create a tailored exercise program customized to your specific needs. This program may include:


  • Stretching Exercises: Designed to improve the flexibility of the plantar fascia and calf muscles, reducing strain on the tissue.

  • Strengthening Exercises: Targeted exercises aimed at strengthening the foot and calf muscles to provide better support for the plantar fascia.

  • Gait Analysis: Identifying and correcting abnormal gait patterns or foot mechanics that contribute to plantar fasciitis.

  • Footwear Recommendations: Providing guidance on proper footwear with adequate arch support and cushioning.


  • Education

Understanding your condition and learning how to manage it is essential for long-term relief. We provide education on proper foot mechanics, footwear choices, ergonomics, and exercises that you can perform at home to maintain healthy feet and prevent future flare-ups.


  • Lifestyle Modification

Lifestyle factors can significantly contribute to plantar fasciitis. Our team collaborates with you to make necessary adjustments to your daily routine, including guidance on footwear, weight management, and activities to avoid during recovery.


  • Prevention

Our ultimate objective is not only to alleviate your current pain but also to empower you with the knowledge and tools to prevent future episodes of plantar fasciitis. We provide guidance on maintaining a healthy lifestyle, regular foot exercises, and strategies to protect your plantar fascia, ensuring long-term foot health.
