Plantar Fasciitis Can Be Painful and Inconvenient

Bradley Seel, DPM, Alaa Mansour, DPM, and Britney Wenig, DPM, at Arbor-Ypsi Foot & Ankle Centers, are dedicated to getting to the root of any foot or ankle problem. They specialize in general foot care, heel pain, ingrown toenails, diabetic foot care, bunions and hammertoes using a digital scanner for orthotics and digital X-rays onsite.

            Plantar fasciitis, the inflammation of the ligament that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the toes to the heel bone, is a common cause of heel pain. When the plantar fascia is injured through repetitive strain, excessive exercise, prolonged standing, wearing uncomfortable shoes or obesity, it may lead to stabbing heel pain that is typically at its worst when taking the first few steps after a long rest.
