Heel Pain - Podiatrist in Fort Myers, Cape Coral and Lee County, Fl - Mark Weaver, DPM
Dr. Mark Weaver discusses the symptoms, causes and treatments for Heel Pain http://www.afootcarecenter.com/
Plantar Fasciitis (Plantar fasciosis) is caused by swelling of the connective tissue that stretches from the base of the toes, across the arch of the foot, to the point at which it inserts into the heel bone. Also called heel spur syndrome. The spur is almost never the cause of the pain.
Plantar Fasciosis (or heel pain) is commonly traced to a swelling on the bottom of the foot. Our practice can evaluate arch pain using the best modality which is diagnostic Ultrasound. Usually treatment is strapping of the foot along with a splint worn at night. Stretching exercises, icing and inserts are also used in most cases. Sometimes cortisone injections can be given as well.
