Plantar fasciitis can be one of the most debilitating and frustrating orthopedic conditions due to the location and nature of the pathology.
Nearly 2 million Americans per year suffer from plantar fascial pain.
This pain can affect anyone but can be particularly bothersome to runners, athletes, and recreational fitness enthusiasts and keep them from engaging in the activities they love due to irritation to the plantar surface of the foot.
Unfortunately, in today’s medical model, most pain experienced at the bottom of the foot is labeled as plantar fasciitis, but in many cases, a different condition is causing the pain. Failure to identify the root cause of plantar pain leads to misdiagnosis.
As a result, patients are often treated with inappropriate therapies and are unable to find relief from their condition. The first step to resolving symptoms at the bottom of your foot is seeing a physician that will give you a thorough orthopedic, neurological, and functional movement examination.
Thanks to the beautiful weather in South Florida, running clubs throughout Hollywood, Hallandale, and Aventura train year-round, and need to stay ahead of this condition!
