You get up in the morning and that pain is there in your foot. After resting you again feel the pain and it is getting worse. At first you think you are imagining it because you would think bottom of foot pain would be worse after activities and not after resting. Well, you are not imagining things. Heel pain and plantar fasciitis are worse after resting because the plantar fascia contracts and weight bearing causes it to stretch and thereby causes the pain.

Common causes of plantar fasciitis and heel spurs include excessive exercise, walking or standing, wearing shoes that fit poorly or have no cushioning. Physical deformities are other factors in causing the pain. Such deformities include flat feet, tight calf muscles or Achilles Tendonitis. Being overweight is another common cause as the extra pounds put extra stress on the plantar of the foot.

Livingston Foot Care in Bellmore NY offers a variety of treatments that can help alleviate heel and bottom of foot pain associated with heel spurs and plantar fasciitis. Injection therapy to shrink the protective bursa that forms around the heel spur can offer immediate relief. The fabrication of custom-made foot orthoses helps to relieve weight bearing stress and provide the needed cushioning to allow the fascia to heal. The use of a night brace or splint is another helpful treatment modality as it stretches the plantar fascia while the person is at rest and this helps prevent the morning pain. There are stretching and icing exercises that are also helpful. We also offer other non-invasive technologically advanced treatments for such conditions including shock wave therapy.

We at Livingston Foot Care Specialists treat this painful condition on a daily basis and surgical intervention is only considered as a last resort. Most patients find relief from their pain with simple treatment modalities. Being active is essential for a person’s well being and plantar fasciitis and its related heel pain should not prevent activity.
