Plantar fasciitis is a common cause of heel pain. Our orthopedic doctors and sports medicine specialists will develop a rehabilitation plan to stretch and strengthen the thick band of tissue that runs along the bottom of your foot to your heel. Our goal is to relieve your pain, get you back to your daily activities and prevent future flare-ups.


We may recommend custom-designed arch supports or shock-absorbing insoles to help stabilize your heel and foot. You also may need to wear a night splint to stretch your plantar fascia. Your treatment could include physical therapy, acupuncture and massage. If conservative treatments don’t relieve your pain, we may recommend steroid shots, shock wave therapy or surgery.
