What is Plantar Fasciitis?

Your plantar fascia is the flat band of tissue that connects your heel bone and your toes and supports the arch of your foot. Plantar fasciitis is what happens when you strain your plantar fascia. It becomes weak and irritated, and the result is a pain in your heel or the bottom of your foot that you feel when you walk.

What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis can happen to anyone who is on their feet a lot, especially athletes and runners. You can strain your plantar fascia just by walking but there are certain circumstances that make it more likely:

  • When you walk, your feet roll inward too much
  • You have flat feet
  • You have high arches
  • Your calf muscles are tight
  • The shoes you wear are worn out or not right for your sensitive feet

Being aware of the causes of plantar fasciitis may help you take necessary actions to prevent it.

What are the Plantar Fasciitis Treatment Options?

Knowing how to get rid of plantar fasciitis is important because the sooner your pain is treated, the sooner you’ll be back on your feet and back to the activities that you enjoy.

Home Treatment

Home treatment is a good place to start when addressing the discomfort caused by plantar fasciitis. Wearing supportive footwear, completing stretching and strengthening exercises, and using ice on your heel could provide you with some relief.


If home remedies aren’t proving successful, your doctor may recommend medication. Ibuprofen, for example, can be purchased without a prescription and may help treat plantar fasciitis. Corticosteroid shots are also a treatment option for those who haven’t found success with other methods. Always talk to your doctor before taking any medication and follow his or her recommendations.


Plantar Fasciitis surgery is rarely the first choice for treatment, but if your pain is debilitating and nothing else has worked, surgery may be recommended. Surgery might be the right treatment option if nothing else has worked and pain is preventing you from participating in your daily activities.

Dr. Sack evaluated my son’s ankle and was incredibly thorough and detailed in his analysis. He also provided a clear and concise explanation of my son’s injury and what a potential treatment plan would entail. I would highly recommend Bartlett Ankle and Foot Center and Dr. Sack.

Dr. Sack and Dr. Dunn are the only podiatrists I trust my feet with. Dr. Sack has seen me through many injuries and two surgeries now. He always listens to my concerns, and exhausts every option before we head down the surgical route. I love how responsive he is to his patients. I know if I ever have a question, he'll get back to me promptly. If you have problems with your feet, I highly recommend this practice! You won't be disappointed!

I have been seeing Dr Dunn for years and he is great. A+++++ all around.
Why knew that "quarantine foot" was a thing? Just putting gym shoes back on around the house has helped a ton with my foot pain. Dr. Dunn is the best!
