I am a chartered physiotherapist and lecturer in Biomechanics. Physiotherapy treatment frequently helps people suffering with plantar fasciitis. Assessment will incorporate a musculo-skeletal assessment and biomechanical analysis of your walking/running paterns. Treatment is geared to the CAUSE of your problem, which might incorporate any number of the following:
1. Tight calf muscles / tight long toe muscles / tight plantar fascia
2. Prolonged/excesssive or fast and high pressure pronation of the foot
3. Poor footwear - e.g. shoes with little support to the arch
4. Restricted joints e.g. subtaloid joints (between heel and ankle)
5. Poor core stability of your muscles around the hip and pelvis
6. Malalignment syndromes
7. Spinal problems
8. Overuse - related to activities/sport
and much more
Treatment might include electrotherapy such as Laser/Ultrasound/ Interferential / myofascial acupuncture - for pain relief; stretches, manipulation, exercise therapy, strapping, footwear and overuse injury advice and self-help exercises.
