Plantar Fasciitis

Plantar Fasciitis refers to heel and arch pain traced to an inflammation on the bottom of the foot. Specifically, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the connective tissue that stretches from the base of the toes, across the arch of the foot, to its connection into the heel bone. Overpronation, the act of rolling your foot inward during walking or running, is the most common cause of plantar fasciitis. This condition, also known as heel spur syndrome, is often successfully treated with the help of anti-inflammatory medications, ice packs, stretching exercises, orthotic devices and physical therapy.

In general most foot pain is the result of a faulty relationship between the bones and muscles of the foot. Even the slightest misalignment can result in significant discomfort. Orthotics are intended to correct an abnormal or irregular walking patterns, by altering slightly the angles at which the foot strikes a walking or running surface.

Orthotics realigns the structures of the foot and leg to prevent bone mal-alignment as well as muscle, tendon, and ligament fatigue. They are often used after surgery to help stop the recurrence of foot deformities. Custom functional foot orthotics are prescription medical devices made from custom molds of your feet. Your Flushing Queens Podiatrist takes into consideration many factors when both acquiring your foot impressions and when writing your personal orthtotic prescription.
