Plantar fasciitis is a common foot problem that can be extremely painful. At FootMotion Podiatry, Karina, one of our podiatrists, shares insights into the causes and solutions to expedite recovery. Let's delve into understanding plantar fasciitis, its causes, and how to improve with Karina.

How common is plantar fasciitis?

Plantar fasciitis is a common source of pain for many at FootMotion Podiatry. Studies show that about 1 in 10 people may deal with it at some point. It can be really painful and make it hard to stand, walk, or exercise.

What could be the cause of plantar fasciitis?

Research indicates that wearing shoes lacking proper cushioning and support might contribute to developing plantar fasciitis. At FootMotion, we offer a range of shoes for casual, work, and exercise purposes, ensuring the right level of support to shield feet from excessive stress.

How can we accelerate recovery from plantar fasciitis?

Contoured thongs like the Ascent Groove with arch support and heel cushioning can aid plantar fasciitis recovery. Customised foot orthotics also help accelerate healing, alleviating pain and improving a person's ability to get back to their activities.

Is there any other way to treat plantar fasciitis?

At FootMotion, we are experts in using advanced, scientifically proven technologies to treat foot and related lower limb problems. Shockwave therapy and our advanced class 4 laser are the latest additions to our treatment options for plantar fasciitis here at Toowong.
