The plantar fascia is a strong band of tissue located along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the toes. Sometimes, this ligament can become inflamed or irritated—a condition referred to as plantar fasciitis. Although anyone can experience plantar fasciitis, it is more common in those who spend a lot of time on their feet, such as athletes, nurses, teachers, servers, and industrial workers.
If you are experiencing pain in your heel, look to the Premier Bone and Joint Centers. The board-certified, fellowship-trained orthopedic specialists at our clinic in Laramie, Wyoming, have provided plantar fasciitis treatment to many residents in the area and would be happy to do the same for you, should you have the condition.
Treating Plantar Fasciitis
The foot and ankle doctors at Premier Bone and Joint Centers always believe in taking conservative approaches to plantar fasciitis treatment first. These include:
- Over-the-counter nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs)
- Custom orthotic shoe inserts
- Overnight bracing
- Physical therapy
- Corticosteroid injections
In most cases, these non-invasive forms of plantar fasciitis treatment prove to be effective. However, if the pain does not subside, our physicians may recommend surgery. During surgery, one of our qualified surgeons will relieve tension in your foot by detaching your inflamed plantar fascia from your heel bone.
