Foot Pain and Plantar Fasciitis - Pain Care Associates in Little Rock

Are you experiencing pain in your feet? There are many situations that cause foot pain including fallen arches, gout, bunions, and inflammation, but one of the most common causes of foot pain is a condition known as plantar fasciitis. Our doctors at Pain Care Associates can determine the source of your foot pain and provide relief.


What is Plantar Fasciitis in Little Rock?

Plantar fasciitis is characterized by stabbing or sharp pain on the bottom of your foot. The pain is normally close to your heel and occurs immediately during your very first steps of the day. It can also occur if you have been standing or sitting in one position for an extended period of time.

Stretched along the bottom of the foot is the plantar fascia, a thick fibrous tissue that connects your toes to the bone of your heel. When this tissue becomes overstretched, overworked, and inflamed, it may suffer repeated tearing that causes irritation, more inflammation, and the pain associated with plantar fasciitis.


What Causes Plantar Fasciitis?

Because the plantar fascia is the shock-absorber for the arches in your feet, too much pressure can weaken and destroy the shocks. Overloading the shock-absorber with pressure causes the pain of plantar fasciitis. This pressure may be caused by several things such as being overweight, wearing shoes that lack support, high heels, having a high arch or flat feet, standing or walking on particularly hard surfaces all day, and exercise that places an inordinate amount of pressure on your heel. Perhaps the most common cause of plantar fasciitis is running as a sport, but ballet dancing and other sports can also overload the plantar fascia.


How We Can Help?

By employing massage therapy, physical therapy, chiropractic adjustment, and other techniques, we can set you on a path to recovery.
