Does your foot hurt when you first get up in the morning? It may get better as your move around a bit, but as the day goes on and you walk around, the pain increases. It could be plantar fasciitis. It is typically felt in the heel but can also cause pain in the arch and on the foot’s edges. If you are experiencing heel pain, you should contact a Virginia foot and ankle center, such as District Foot & Ankle, to be assessed.
What Is Causing My Pain?
While heel pain can be caused by plantar fasciitis, other things can be the cause as well, such as:
- Stress fractures
- Nerve issues
- Rheumatoid arthritis
Once those are ruled out, and we know it’s plantar fasciitis, our VA office can begin treatment. Most cases can be healed with the right treatment. There are various treatment options available that can help you avoid surgery, such as regenerative medicine.
