Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar fasciitis

What is it?

Plantar fasciitis can be a very painful condition affecting the heel and sometimes sole of the foot. The plantar fascia is a band of tissue that covers the sole of the foot and attached to the heel bone. It can become very sore and irritated, causing pain on weightbearing especially first thing in the morning.

Plantar fasciitis

What causes it?

Overloading the plantar fascia causes this condition, lots of factors can cause overload to the tissue. Inappropriate training patterns, poor footwear, faulty biomechancs and muscle balance can all stress this tissue and causes it to become very painful.
Plantar fasciitis

What can we do for it?

Identifying the factors that have contributed to it’s development is really important, just treating the symptoms and not getting to the root cause doesn’t fix this problem for good. We will do a thorough assessment to work out what’s causing the problem, and then introduce a management plan. The plan is likely to include some activity modification, some hands-on treatment, and some specific exercises. Sometimes we may need to refer you to a podiatrist to have your foot biomechanics assessed and then corrected with some custom made orthotics.
  • Testimonials

    "The physiotherapy service I’ve received at Physio Art from Ruth has been absolutely life changing. I’ve never been stronger, more mobile or more aware of my own body. The exercises in the app have been easy to follow and remember, and more importantly I’ve been able to step down from more invasive treatment for my back and get back to work."

  • Testimonials

    "Sophie has helped me rehab a long standing shoulder issue resulting from overuse of playing tennis and other racket sports. She was quick to identify the condition, gave an accurate timeline of recovery and helped my put in place various exercises over the next few months to get to a state where I can exercise and play sports free of the pain again. I'd highly recommend Sophie and Physio Art."

  • Testimonials

    "There is nowhere else I would go than Physio Art. My 11-year old son had an emergency appointment with Adhip for a very painful lower leg and he was absolutely brilliant. His knowledge and advice was excellent and the results began to show during the appointment. Every physio we have seen there has been highly professional, incredibly helpful and so kind. "

  • Testimonials

    "I have complete trust in Sarah whom I have seen on a number of occasions for different problems. She always listens intently and delves deep into my experience so I feel completely confident in the course of treatment she recommends. I love that she is so good at explaining what is affecting the problem and often there is more at play than just the mechanics of the body. Any consultation with Sarah is fascinating as well as healing!"
