Milwaukee Foot Specialists Treat Plantar Fasciitis Arch Pain
Podiatrist in Milwaukee Offers Treatment of Arch Pain Associated with Plantar Fasciitis
Great Midwest Foot and Ankle’s Milwaukee foot specialists alleviate plantar fasciitis arch pain. Plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of tissue connecting the heel and the ball of your foot. This ligament-like band pulls on the heel bone, raising the foot’s arch as it pushes off the ground. When your foot moves improperly, the plantar fascia becomes strained and inflamed, causing the band’s tiny fibers to fray. When this happens plantar fasciitis begins to develop, which produces pain in the arch and heel. This condition can be very painful and is often worse in the morning or after the foot has been rested. Plantar fasciitis is often caused by foot injury, poor foot mechanics or sudden overuse of the connective tissues. If left untreated, plantar fasciitis will likely become worse and other foot problems may develop including heel spurs or bursitis. When you have tried everything from shoe inserts to physical therapy and your arch pain does not improve, you may be suffering from chronic plantar fasciitis.
