Plantar Fascitis & Heel Pain
Plantar Fascitis Treatment
Are You Bothered By Heel Pain?
If you have been experiencing severe pain in the heels of your feet, you may be suffering from plantar fascitis. At the office of Dr. Ava Washko, we specialize in the field of foot and ankle treatments and can help get to the bottom of severe heel pain. While there are many different causes of pain and discomfort in the heel of the foot, plantar fascitis is one of the most common culprits. When the plantar fascia (a tissue which runs from the heel of the foot to the ball) becomes weakened or irritated, it can cause inflammation.
The common causes of plantar fascitis include:
- Tight heel cords
- New exercise regimen
- Weight gain
- Increased walking or standing
- Wearing uncomfortable shoes
Our goal is to get to the bottom of your pain and provide you with effective treatment. If you would like to make an appointment to see our Houston podiatrist, call our office at (832) 644-9798!
